Q.

I am looking for a firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Hastings. and what is included?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many conveyancers purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs can increase your final bill. Any additional costs listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined and only come into force where the solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your conveyancing quote should also state applicable disbursements.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

In about five weeks we are expecting to move from our terraced building in Hastings to our next flat in Hartfield at what stage to select a home removal firm?

A.

Q.

If I am buying in the parish of Alfriston, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Hastings parish in which you are buying, a solicitor could advise a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £467k home, how could we accelerate the process?

A.

Finding a experienced lawyer is crucial to fast Hastings conveyancing. When identifying an appropriate a lawyer, consider these points: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Adept bidders tend to formally instruct a property lawyer as rapidly as they can to allow for a full review of the legal papers in advance of the auction day.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey necessary when purchasing a house?
