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.

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 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?

Q.

Our estate agent in Hungerford has named a law firm whom they usually use. Do we need to instruct this firm?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace way to find a solicitor, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
