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.

Doing your own conveyancing without the assistance of a solicitor in Peacehaven is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a house. Would it be practicable ?

A.

Legally speaking there is no argument why a home seller cannot take care of he conveyancing yourself.

In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a significant number of tasks e.g. raising additional enquiries or notifying all parties of exchange which need a qualified solicitor.

Additionaly firms and their solicitors are required by the Law Society to be in possession of acceptable insurance to shield you in the event of losses you encounter.

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.

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.

Does Peacehaven include many areas of conservation?

A.

Conservation areas classify streets and neighbourhoods of architectural merit. The local authority will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Sompting, near Peacehaven?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Through some church councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

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.

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.
