Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for buying a property?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the small print which unwary home owners fail to check. Any additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and come into force only if your conveyancer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

If I am intending to purchase in the parish of Hastings All Saints, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to

exact chancel repairs on owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

A.

The local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by a solicitor should check if the Robertsbridge property a designated conservation area proof of permission for modifications will be required.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the help of a Robertsbridge lawyer is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a home , however would it actually be practical ?

A.

In theory there are no reasons why a buyer cannot look after the conveyancing unaided.

Nonetheless firms and their solicitors are liable to be required to have insurance cover to insulate you in the event of carelessness.
