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.

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.

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.

Which local authority is responsible for Petworth?

Petworth is located in Chichester District Council, East Pallant House, 1 East Pallant, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 1TY, contact: 01243 785 166

Q.

How do we determine stamp duty, how much do we need to budget for a £610000 residential property?

A.

The Stamp Duty that is payable will depend on the property's value. For a residential property estimated at £610000, the rate will be £24400 (information correct October 2012).

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without the aid of a property solicitor in Petworth looks to be possible when selling a house. However, would it be shrewd ?

A.

Technically speaking there is absolutely no reason at all why you cant complete the legal process unaided. However, a lawyer typically handles a large number of functions including approving contract or collating and preparing contract and package many of which really need a qualified professional. Nevertheless legal practices must pay for relevant indemnity insurance to shield you from any professional failures.

Q.

In what ways can my Petworth solicitor advise us on the potential risk of local flooding to properties in Petworth for a Victorian home we are intending to buy?

A.

The lawyer will apply for environmental searches that should include Petworth flood risk data.

Q.
