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.

We are buying on a newly development brownfield land. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Hartfield industrial or agricultural can cause topsoil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as pesticides, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in July, what will be calculated for stamp duty tax?

The Stamp Duty you will owe will depend on the purchase price. On a £375000 residential property, stamp duty will be £11250.*

*This information correct as of December 2012

Q.

How is Hartfield contaminated land checked when buying a house?

A.

Property in Hartfield would be contaminated by several human activities, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a property is affected by contaminants in the area like local waste transfer sites and hazardous and regulated installations.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Hartfield?

A.

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

Q.

Do we need to be aware of fixtures and fittings?

A.

Purchasers are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding what fixtures and fittings should be included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

The property seller appears to have installed unsuitable doors on the building in Hartfield which I think might violate nearby conservation area guidelines

A.

A solicitor will always check if your new home is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have required consents from the local planning authority.

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.
