Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote in Heathfield?

A.

Various law firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees which are listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined. They only apply in cases where the lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on a conveyancing quote

Q.

Conveyancing searches are computed from past data and when you factor in recent weather changes e g the fact that 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding are they the best way to investigate enough about the Heathfield flood risk area?

A.

A good Heathfield conveyancer will recommend that you apply for in depth environmental searches if the first search establishes a any kind of risk of flooding in Heathfield.

In Heathfield, are there organisations of contaminated soil remediation?

Q.

How do you determine stamp duty, and what will it be on a £260000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty you pay is based on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £7800 on a £260000 property.

Q.

What sort of local environmental checks in respect to the potential risk of local flooding in East Sussex will a Heathfield property solicitor actually apply for on a residential property I am intending to buy?

Q.

Should we opt for a lawyer referred by the agent?

A.

Your Belper agent will usually refer a law firm. Such referrals should be considered carefully, as some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.
