Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing in Lewes?

A.

Many property lawyers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms. Extra charges which are listed in the solicitor's terms ought to be fair. They be applied only where the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

My wife and I are purchasing in Lewes, and would like to find out whether there are many designated conservation areas.

A.

Conservation areas indicate regions registered as being of special architectural or historic interest. Conservation areas in Lewes include Seaford Town Centre. The local authority will advise further about local areas of conservation, and the property solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Do you have low cost solicitors that get involved in auction conveyancing in Lewes?

A.

Our company is very capable working with bidders at auction. Homeward Legals panel of conveyancing lawyers have been instructed by numerous buyers and sellers at local Lewes auctions like Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House

London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Q.

If we are purchasing near Lewes, in the parish of Rogate, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In older areas of Lewes, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a property where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Will we need a property survey?

A.

It is heavily suggested that home buyers arrange a RICS surveyor if purchasing in Lewes. There can be many defects that can affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address. These can include rotten roof timbers.

Q.

How can I find if any of the protected Lewes conservation areas are in a poor state?

A.

An up-to-date evaluation of the state of conservation areas in Lewes is reported by English Heritage. This information are currently to be found at the English Heritage website- Seaford Town Centre registered as poor with medium vulnerability and deteriorating.

Q.

I am purchasing an Edwardian terraced house, should we have searches done?

A.

These searches are a prescribed pack of queries ordered on your behalf, for example a local authority search, and will only cover issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

Would you suggest taking precautions to avoid paying for stamp duty in Lewes?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is due for home purchases over 125,000 pounds. We do not advise home buyers arrange any form of stamp duty avoidance, as such schemes are costly and very risky. There have been certain legal initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.
