How do I find the cheapest Highcliffe conveyancing quote?


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.


What type of fact finding into the risk of floods in the Dorset area will the conveyancer in Highcliffe advise on?


An important component in the legal due diligence process of purchasing a property involves a conveyancing solicitor carrying out conveyancing and environmental searches that provide some details with regard to Highcliffe flooding.


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


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.


My husband and I are interested in purchasing a residence in Highcliffe, and need to know if there are any conservation areas.

Conservation areas characterise streets and neighbourhoods of 'special architectural and historic interest'. A solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works and be able to advise further.


I have taken out a quote from you. May we be expected to pay any hidden fees?


No. Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any hidden charges. Be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.


How much is the council tax on a Thirties converted Band E house in Highcliffe?

Which government authority is responsible for policing the standard of conservation areas in Highcliffe?


Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced records in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the trend. Local conservation areas are created by the local authority (New Forest) who administer the state of the area including things like modern telephone boxes, the painting of houses and street furniture.


If we are intending to buy in the parish of Dorchester Holy Trinity with Frome Whitfield, should we get a chancel search?


Regardless of the Highcliffe parish in which you are purchasing, the conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to exact chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
