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.

Does our professional conveyancing solicitor in Pagham inform me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band A townhouse before exchange?

A.

Your conveyancer will consult with the governing council to ascertain the most up to date council tax charges which will be included in the report on title. The correct charges for homes in Pagham are tabled at the Arun council site. At the time of authoring (24 February 2013) rates for all bands 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

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £452,000 property, what can we do to speed up the transaction?

A.

The key to a fast transaction is to instruct a proactive, diligent solicitor. When choosing a solicitor, consider these points: Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?

Q.

Why might conveyancing work to buy in Pagham take months to complete?

A.

The conveyancing process can be lengthy even where there is no chain. Some causes are out of a solicitor's hands. We know how much extra stress these can cause and do our best to curtail their effect where possible. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

What amount of time will be accounted for conveyancing legal work require in Pagham?

A.

The time required to transact property may vary. This is based on a number of aspects. These may include the tenure of the property. With our Pagham property specialists, every purchase is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

The maisonette being purchased is on a brownfield site. What should we do regarding molybdenum topsoil contamination?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Pagham, but if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as phenols, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

How do I circumvent paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation is not recommended for purchases in Pagham, as such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed.
