How do I get a cheap solicitor to own a house?


This matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Any costs should be fair and come into force only if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Which local authority looks after Newhaven?


Newhaven is located in Lewes District Council, 32 High Street, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2LX, Call: 01273 471 600


Is your panel of solicitors able to move quickly on the conveyancing for auction properties in Newhaven?


Indeed we prepare legal packs for vendors and often take instructions from buyers at auction. We strongly suggest buyers at auction to formally appoint a conveyancing lawyer in advance of the auction day so there is time for a title report of the legal documents.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction date you are the property conveyancing lawyer will need to be fully prepared to get through the purchase legal work in under a month as required by the terms of sale.


I have read about the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began, we are questioning if flood searches might not be sufficient?


Conveyancing and environmental searches carried out by your Newhaven solicitor will also include a more rigorous flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still concerned try to approach a local resident.


Do we need to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying in Newhaven.


Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church of England properties in the area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Michael's.


Can I check that a building is in one of Newhaven's areas of conservation?


Conservation areas cover areas of special architectural or historic interest. Your solicitor will be able to advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


Would arranging a building survey be a good idea when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?


It is strongly suggested that the majority of purchasers in Newhaven arrange a surveyor when buying in Newhaven. There can be a wide range of problems which can affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address. These can include subsidence and settlement.
