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.

What type of checks in respect to the risk of possible flooding in the East Sussex region will the solicitor in Hartfield be able to conduct for a Regency house I am purchasing?

A conveyancing lawyer will conduct standard formal environmental searches that will include Hartfield flood risk area data.

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.

How can sale conveyancing take months to complete?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home can be drawn out. Homeward Legal do our best to diminish the cost of these delays wherever reasonable by chasing for prompt responses.

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.

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

A.

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.

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.
