Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in Pevensey for buying a property?

A.

This matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. A quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursments).Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Would acquiring a building survey be sensible when buying a house?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that you book a home buyer survey. It is a fact that there are many problems that can negatively affect a property. These include failed double glazing or poor drainage, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

When should you get a solicitor to act for us?

With few exceptions, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Prompt instruction of a firm can reduce any chance of the transaction aborting.

Q.

What factors are key to get a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a proactive and experienced solicitor. When choosing a solicitor, you should ask the following: Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Do they use email?

Q.

The current owner looks to have installed artificial stone cladding on the property in Pevensey which we think might break nearby conservation area criteria

A.

Your property solicitor will always establish whether the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the essential permissions from the Eastbourne authority.

Q.

What causes conveyancing for a purchase to need such a long time?

A.

The Pevensey conveyancing process will occasionally be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal strive to reduce their consequences by proactively handling all enquiries. Delays include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

Is a mining search passed on at cost?

A.

Each fee and disbursement ought to be stated on the quote for your conveyancing. This charge,e.g., is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

The purchase is completing next October, what will be worked out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £56850 on a £1137000 residential property (correct March 2013).
