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.

Does Petworth include many conservation areas?

A.

With over 8,000 protected areas in England, the local areas around Petworth will include a range of conservation areas. Living in a conservation area can mean protection for trees and other flora, but the restrictions can add to maintenance costs. A conveyancing solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk experienced enough to move fast on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Petworth?

A.

Yes - The legal team are familiar with local and national auctions and often carry out work for bidders at auction. Our specialist property solicitors have acted for numerous vendors at local auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Regularly unusual buildings such as residential investments, are sold at auction which tend to demand supplementary. We therefore advise that buyers

appoint their chosen property lawyer in advance of the auction to allow for a title report. Subsequently, immediately after the day of bidding, the lawyer needs to be geared up to finalise the legal process in 28 days as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

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.

If you are buying in Petworth, do I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Petworth property likely to be affected. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Petworth properties is likely to exist. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Petworth church properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Mary.

Q.

I am intending to buy a chapel in the parish of Rustington. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

The conveyancer may suggest a chancel search. Through some church councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Rustington, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like beds?

A.

Petworth property buyers are often frustrated by confusion over what fixtures and fittings should be included. A fixtures and fittings form can avoid any disputes and will clarify precisely what is to be included.

Q.

I am planning on buying a period maisonette in the boundary of conservation area in Petworth. Where does one find data in relation to the state of upkeep?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain information of the condition of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability. Conservation areas are designated by Chichester who preside over conservation area concerns from what can be demolished to the improvement of poorly-maintained public spaces.
