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


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.


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:

  • Band A - £1,015.00
  • Band B - £1,184.00
  • Band C - £1,353.00
  • Band D - £1,522.00
  • Band E - £1,860.00
  • Band F - £2,198.00
  • Band G - £2,537.00
  • Band H - £3,044.00


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

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


Bookshops and the web both have an abundance of on and offline explanatory studies about going into great depth on how to do DIY conveyancing. Do I actually need a Littlehampton solicitor ?


If you want to , you can practically conduct majority of the legal work without the services of solicitor in Littlehampton .

That said, a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a large array of tasks ranging from chasing mortgage offer and reading the lease most of which require a qualified professional. More importantly DIY conveyancers will be working without applicable insurance cover which all lawyers will obtain.


May the fees for my conveyancing include any hidden costs?


No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never charge any hidden fees. Your quote for conveyancing in Littlehampton is an single, accurate price.


What does a Littlehampton conveyancing solicitor do if the home I am planning to buy is located in a registered conservation area and has unauthorised window frames installed?


A property lawyer will always identify if the property is inside a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have the essential consents from the Arun authority.


Which factors can impact land in Littlehampton, and should they be a problem?


Property could be contaminated by several human activities, like overhead transmission lines. An environmental search will offer more detail. Brookbarn Farm, Courtwick Lane, West Sussex, BN17 7PE is a source of potential local contamination in Littlehampton.


Are Littlehampton any conservation areas going to affect us?


Areas considered to be of historic or architectural significance, like historic transport links, may be designated as conservation areas. A conveyancing lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities for affected areas in Littlehampton.
