Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges will be included in small print. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote

Q.

Should the form for fixtures and fittings list plugs and sockets?

A.

Mainly, there is not a legal definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. To avoid confusion, a list should be agreed by both sides and will clarify precisely what is to be included.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Frant?

A.

Frant is located in Wealden District Council, Vicarage Lane, Hailsham, East Sussex, BN27 2AX, contact: 01323 443 322

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel liability search? I am buying on the same street as priory grounds in Frant.

Property owners near to older church buildings are expected to cover the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Frant must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your solicitor can provide more details. Frant church lands which may give rise to chancel liability include St Alban.

Q.

Do your solicitors administer the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Frant?

A.

Yes - our property solicitors often do the legal conveyancing buyers at auction. Lawyers invariably suggest purchasers to choose the conveyancing firm in advance of the property auction to allow for a thorough review.

Subsequently, immediately after the actual auction your appointed property conveyancing lawyer is thoroughly prepared for completing all of the legal work in the limited time frame as required .

Q.

Can we avoid paying out for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty is usually due for homes priced at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty scheme is not advised, as such schemes are expensive and unreliable. There have been a number of government initiatives, however, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

Might our conveyancing costs for our Frant move cover any additional charges?

A.

No. Our solicitors will never charge any extra, hidden costs under any circumstances. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

We are on a deadline and will need to get fast conveyancing, what should we do?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a proactive, diligent conveyancer. Beyond that, there are a number of things you, as the buyer, can also do, such as, requesting regular updates from your conveyancer and keep the pressure on, arranging your mortgage offer and quickly answering your conveyancer's questions.
