Q.

I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Hartfield. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The quote must also state the disbursements to be paid. Additional costs should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

How much can our searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, Hartfield clients are required to pay no more than £249 for searches.

Q.

When buying a converted investment property in a conservation area. Where does one find details on the state of repair?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have created records on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area. Conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Wealden) who manage conservation area concerns from the historic layout of roads to modern telephone boxes.

Q.

Will I need a chancel search? I am purchasing in Hartfield.

Chancel repair can require Hartfield property owners to cover the cost of maintenance of local churches. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Hartfield property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Church lands in the area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Mary.

Q.

What individual searches does the Hartfield conveyancing solicitor apply for a Hartfield property?

A.

The regular legal protocol is to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search, and possibly less common searches, which may include a Planning Search.

Q.

We are buying in Hartfield with The Woolwich, what do I need to consider?

A.

In some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for property buyers. We can act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Will the property report prepared by the conveyancing solicitor in Hartfield advise me on the applicable rates of the council tax for a Band F cottage prior to completion?

A.

The lawyer will contact the Wealden local council to discover the latest council tax charges which will then be set out in the conveyancing report on title.

Council tax rates for homes in Hartfield are set out on the Wealden local authority site. At the time of writing (21 February 2013) the rates are:
