Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Hurst Green?

A.

Numerous firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges are frequently hidden in small print that buyers and sellers often do not check. Any fees found in the solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Should I be worried about gazumping?

A.

This arises when a seller accepts a purchaser's offer and then dismisses it in favour of a greater offer. It may happen weeks into a purchase. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. Consider instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Myself and my partner are intending to buy in Hurst Green. Are there many conservation areas?

A.

With over 8,000 listed areas in England, the areas in or near Hurst Green include a number of conservation areas. These restrictions can add to maintenance costs, but the benefits include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change. Your solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

Does my Hurst Green conveyancer inform me about the amount of council tax to be paid for a Band A house before exchange of contracts?

A.

The property solicitor will contact the governing Tandridge local council to find out the relevant council tax charges which will then be written in the report on title. The latest council tax charges for

homes in Hurst Green are detailed online at the Tandridge council website. At the time of authoring (14 August 2012) the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,042.00
  • Band B - £1,216.00
  • Band C - £1,390.00

  • Band E - £1,911.00
  • Band F - £2,258.00
  • Band G - £2,605.00
  • Band H - £3,126.00

Q.

When is it wise to get a conveyancer?

A.

Simply, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. Early instruction of a firm for a purchase enables you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' relate to?

A.

Purchasers in Hurst Green are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity over what fixtures and fittings are included in a purchase. Fixtures and fittings are regularly not considered, making the completion and approval of a comprehensive fixtures and fittings form so important.

Q.

Bookshops and the web have abundant helpful resources on the subject of doing your own legal work. Do I actually want to use a Hurst Green property solicitor ?

A.

Legally speaking there are no reasons why you shouldn't do the legal work yourself. In reality however, a conveyancer is in charge of a huge number of roles from e.g. approving enquiries on searches and applying for searches which need a qualified solicitor. Nevertheless solicitors practices are required to carry sufficient indemnity cover to safeguard you in the event of oversights.

Q.

The property in Hurst Green being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Is zinc soil contamination likely?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Metal contamination of soil in Hurst Green is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), will also be included in an environmental search.
