Q.

We are trying to find discount conveyancing. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Additional charges included in your solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable. They only apply in cases where your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

A.

We do not hide any additional charges. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

What do conveyancing searches bear upon?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a typical collection of questions ordered by the purchaser's conveyancing lawyer, such as a local authority search. Buyers in Portslade should consider that, these searches only deal with legal-related matters.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Portslade checked when purchasing?

A.

A broad range of contaminants caused by natural and human-influenced issues can affect Portslade property. Contaminants such as a proximate telecommunications base station and infilled land should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

What do we need to know if we acquire a semi detached house within a Brighton and Hove council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of conveyancing for buyers includes the making of enquiries of the Brighton and Hove authority to check conservation area status and permission for any alterations. In the event that no necessary permissions be supplied, your solicitor will give you professional advice on the options which can include requesting an indemnity policy or getting retrospective permission from the council.

Q.

Do I need to make use of a solicitor who works with by our local agent?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work to them, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, as some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
