Q.

I am looking for a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. What is included?

A.

Several firms advertise cheap conveyancing. However extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Fees should be fair and reasonable and only apply to matters if your lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Littlehampton, but some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. The local authority for Littlehampton will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Does my solicitor in Littlehampton report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band B house prior to completing on the purchase?

The property lawyer will consult with the appropriate Arun local authority to enquire about the correct council tax band and rates, which will then be included in the conveyancing report on title. The latest council tax charges for homes in Littlehampton are set out in detail on the Arun local authority site. At the time of writing on 21 October 2012 the rates are:

At what point is it appropriate to instruct a solicitor in Littlehampton?

A.

Simply, as soon as possible. Instructing a firm to handle your Littlehampton conveyancing early could mitigate the chance of the transaction aborting.

Q.

Should I select a solicitors firm put forward by the local agent?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon way to find a solicitor, however, these referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.
