Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Midhurst for a £347,000 house?

A.

Many conveyancers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print that home owners often do not check. Any extra costs found in the terms needs to be reasonable. They only apply in cases where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I am going to purchase with Halifax - what will I need to check?

A.

Purchasers need to be aware that, in some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. We can act on behalf of many CML-approved lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's costs.

Q.

What conservation areas are there in Midhurst?

A.

These areas specify regions designated as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your property solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Midhurst?

A.

Midhurst is located in Chichester District Council, East Pallant House, 1 East Pallant, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 1TY, Call: 01243 785 166

Q.

Are your property lawyers geared up for very fast completions on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Midhurst?

A.

In fact we prepare legal packs for vendors and do frequently work for buyers at auction. It is sensible to pick an affordable conveyancing solicitor as rapidly as they can to allow adequate time for a full report of the lot prior to the property auction date. Post property auction, the conveyancing lawyer will need to be focused on conclude the conveyancing process within a month as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

How do we determine stamp duty, and how much should we pay on a £392000 Midhurst residential property?

A.

Stamp Duty is calculated based on the purchase price. It is £11760 on a £392000 property.*

*This information correct as of September 2012

Q.

At what point should you instruct a solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier, the better, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Promptly instructing a solicitor for a purchase may mean that 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, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Chichester St Andrew?

A.

The property lawyer could advise a chancel search. Although some parish councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
