Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor quote for selling a house?

A.

Many firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the terms that property buyers and sellers often do not check. Additional fees included in terms and conditions needs to be fair and come into force only if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote for conveyancing in Peacehaven should list any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

Is it important that we get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a house in Peacehaven.

A.

Owners of property in a neighbourhood near churches must cover the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbey', may indicate chancel liability. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Peacehaven churches include Church of The Ascension.

Q.

As a result of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, I am apprehensive that property conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Property conveyancing searches carried out by your Peacehaven property lawyer will also include a far more rigorous Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you are still concerned you can always get in touch with a local resident.

Q.

When is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Peacehaven?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor could mitigate the chance of your transaction aborting.

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately installed inappropriate dormer windows to the house in Peacehaven which I think might break nearby conservation area criteria

A.

A property lawyer is required to verify whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have appropriate permission from the Lewes authority.

If no authority consents be available, your solicitor will recommend the alternatives like buying an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective approval.

Q.

We have requested a quote from you. Could I be expected to pay any hidden fees after the move?

A.

Our solicitors never charge any additional charges.

Q.

Should I use the lawyer offered by my agent?

A.

If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you the agent is able to use their influence induce a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

I am shortly going to be moving from our detached building on the outskirts of Peacehaven to a new home in Newhaven what is the right point to book a house removal firm?

A.

Homeward Legals advice is for home movers to put off a removal van until such time as everyone has formalised a completion date that occurs after final contracts are signed.
