Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Additional charges should be reasonable. They only apply to matters if your solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Is molybdenum (Mo) found in Petworth soil?

A.

Petworth industry and natural causes can cause soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including acidic compounds.

Q.

At what stage should I book a home removal service?

A.

The best advice is for home movers to wait before instructing the removals until all parties have accepted by both parties a formal home moving date that as a rule occurs once contracts are signed. Try Westons, Unit 2 Crawfold Business Park, Balls Cross, Petworth, GU28 9JT on 01403 820814.

Q.

When is it wise to find a conveyancing solicitor?

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier, the better. Promptly instructing a conveyancing solicitor for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

How is Petworth contaminated land investigated when buying a house?

A.

Land would be contaminated by several human activities, and an environmental search will confirm if a plot of land is impacted by contaminants in Petworth including proximity to waste sites and other sources of contaminated land.

Q.

Do I need a building survey?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that Petworth property purchasers order a RICS survey when you plan to buy in Petworth. A range issues affect a property. These include cracked roof tiles or failed double glazing. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Property solicitors in Petworth carry out some conveyancing searches if instructed to act for a home purchase client but what specific searches?

A.

If buying and obtaining a mortgage the building society of bank expects at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and occasionally less common searches for instance Planning.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Forties end of terrace Band B home in Petworth?

A.
