Q.

Horley points of interest

A.

Lowfield Heath Surrey Windmill and Skyview Aviation Museum are easily accessible from Horley.

The closest hospital for Horley is Horley, Gatwick Park.

Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a home?

A.

This catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on any quote for conveyancing in HorleyHomeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are purchasing a converted chapel in Shere. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

Your property solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a residence where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

I am hoping to be moving from our semi detached building on the outskirts of Horley to a new dwelling in Headley what is the optimum stage to choose a removals firm?

Our recommendation is to put off removals until the point where you and the other side has set your completion date that occurs once signing of contracts. For more information speak to Removals & Deliveries, Beech Hay/Ifield Rd, Charlwood, Horley, RH6 0DR Phone: 01293 862492.

Q.

Solicitors in Horley do necessary conveyancing searches when they are instructed by a property buyer, which particular searches?

A.

If getting a mortgage the building society of bank expects at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and occasionally specific searches, which may include a Utilities Search.

Q.

What do searches apply to?

A.

These searches are a set of questions raised by the purchaser's property solicitor, such as a tin mining search. These will not be a substitute for a building survey and will not identify structural issues.

Q.

We are planning to buy with the Royal Bank of Scotland, is there anything I need to know?

A.

Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for all major UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

What does a Horley conveyancing lawyer do when the building I am planning to buy is inside the boundary of a local authority conservation area and has unfitting roof aerials fitted?

A.

A property solicitor will make enquiries to ascertain whether your new home is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the necessary permission from the local authority. In the event that no necessary permissions be supplied the solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which include getting an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective consent from the planning authority.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Sandgate has suggested the property lawyer who they generally use. Must I instruct this firm?

A.

It is commonplace for agents to recommend a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
