Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing in Pagham?

A.

This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges will be included in the solicitor's terms, left unregarded by busy property buyers and sellers Any additional costs included in the terms should be fair and reasonable. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a Pagham conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How much will the searches be?

A.

The cost of searches on a purchase in Pagham can vary substantially. Searches are disbursements.

Q.

Should we employ the conveyancing solicitor suggested by my local agent?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common route for buyers to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We have found a buyer and have a quote from you. Might there be any hidden costs?

Homeward Legal's solicitors never charge any extra, hidden charges for any reason. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which they will not be bound to.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search when I am buying next to a parsonage in Pagham?

A.

What are our options when buying a Pagham flat in a Arun planning authority conservation area ?
