Q.

How do I find the cheapest Highcliffe conveyancing quote?

A.

This affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees may increase your solicitor's invoice. A quote for conveyancing in Highcliffe should state any disbursements. Additional fees should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed ex-industrial use land. Can the top-soil still be contaminated?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. Other sources of contaminated land include fertilisers and groundwater contaminants like silage.

Q.

Will your Highcliffe property lawyer conduct any property searches on the Hampshire Regency semi-detached building I am buying?

A.

Normal procedure is to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly less common searches, which may include a Development reports.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? I am buying a Highcliffe property near church grounds.

A.

Owners of property near to a local church may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Highcliffe must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Highcliffe churches which may give rise to chancel liability include St Mark.

Q.

What will a Highcliffe property solicitor advise if the property is inside a New Forest planning authority conservation area which has unsanctioned windows installed?

A.

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should find out the existence of suitable consent for development to the property.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to speak to a conveyancing solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

Generally, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks that may be performed very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier can limit the risk of your sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

How do we hold off paying SDLT rates?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend clients risk any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

Do we need a home surveyor to investigate this house purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal suggest that buyers book a house survey when buying in Highcliffe. It is a fact that there are a wide range of problems which will impact a property. These include ground movement.
