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.

Q.

Where can I establish if the Robertsbridge conservation area is neglected?

A.

Conservation areas in Robertsbridge are designated by Rother who are responsible for everything from including things like poorly maintained public spaces, dormer windows and property boundaries. English Heritage maintain records in relation to the condition of conservation areas along with the risk of a worsening of the condition of the area.

Q.

Bank of Ireland Mortgages is our mortgage lender - what will I need to know?

A.

When taking out a mortgage to buy a property, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers should be aware that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in greater conveyancing costs for house purchasers. We are able to act on behalf of most CML-approved lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Does my assigned lawyer in Robertsbridge report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band D maisonette before exchange of contracts?

A.

The lawyer will liaise with the appropriate council to ascertain the appropriate council tax charges which will then be written in the report on title. Council tax charges for residents of Robertsbridge are published on the Rother council website. As of 15 August 2012 rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,059.00
  • Band B - £1,236.00
  • Band C - £1,412.00
  • Band D - £1,589.00
  • Band E - £1,942.00
  • Band F - £2,295.00
  • Band G - £2,648.00
  • Band H - £3,178.00

Q.

Unforeseeable personal circumstances dictate that we want to hurry up and exchange contracts on the conveyancing on our co-owned flat quickly, do you use any fast Robertsbridge solicitors ?

A.

Too many property solicitors companies are extremely passive which brings further aggravation to the property legal process.

Our panel of solicitors are highly proactive and try to communicate through all parts of the chain and that always utilise the latest document production systems to complete on your home move to your ideal move date.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £194k house, what do we need to organise?

A.

The key to fast conveyancing is to use a proactive solicitor. Beyond that, there are numerous things you can do to speed up your conveyancing, such as, keeping in regular contact with your solicitor, arranging your mortgage offer and answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Robertsbridge?

A.

Robertsbridge is located in Rother District Council, Town Hall, Bexhill- on- Sea, East Sussex, TN39 3JX, contact: 1425 787 878

Q.

Our agent has named the firm of solicitors whom they usually use. Do I need to use them?

A.

Many agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors where they refer clients to them. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
