How do I find fixed rate conveyancing in Lewes?


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.


What can the searches cost?


The cost of Lewes searches somewhat varies. Common searches include a mining search and an environmental search.


Having read about the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record we are questioning if conveyancing and environmental searches won't be detailed enough?


Conveyancing searches conducted by your conveyancing solicitor in Lewes will also include a far more informative Landmark flood search if required.

If you are anxious why not try to approach a neighbour of the property.

When my partner and I are buying close by priory grounds in Lewes, is it recommended that we get a searches for chancel liability?


Property owners near to a church in the area must cover the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land in Lewes must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Churches in Lewes where chancel liability may apply include St Michael, South Malling Parish Church (St Michael the Archangel) and St John sub Castro.


In the next month we are preparing to be moving out of our detached property on the outskirts of Lewes into a newer house in Hastings , at what point to appoint a removals firm?


We would tend to advise that home movers delay booking a removals company until such time as exchange of contracts has been notified as a final home moving date will not have been settled.
