Q.

On the purchase of a £504,000 residence, what will be the fees? We are trying to find an affordable Rottingdean conveyancing quote.

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic affects many sellers and buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many property lawyers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any additional charges should be fair. They be applicable solely where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What amount of time does the legal work to sell property require? I already have an offer.

A.

In general, the time needed to sell or purchase a property does vary, according to a broad set of aspects. We strive to ensure the matter is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.

Q.

When you are buying a Rottingdean house by parish land, is it necessary to get a search for chancel liability?

A.

In Rottingdean, some owners can be required to cover the cost of maintenance of nearby church land. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Rottingdean churches where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Margaret.

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that deal with the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Rottingdean?

A.

Our property solicitors frequently take instructions from auction buyers and sellers. We strongly recommend buyers to choose a fast conveyancing lawyer well in advance of the date of the auction to give enough time for a thorough investigation. Immediately

following the actual auction, your property conveyancing lawyer will need to be able to concentrate on briskly carry out the auction conveyancing process in the 28 day time frame, a requirement of standard auction conditions.

Q.

Does the report on the property's title compiled by the property solicitor in Rottingdean include details of the relevant rates of council tax for a maisonette before completion?

A.

The lawyer will contact the Lewes local authority to find out the appropriate council tax band and rates, which will be set out in the title report. Up-to-date rates for residents of Rottingdean are tabled online at the Lewes council website. On (07 March 2013) the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,097.00
  • Band B - £1,279.00
  • Band C - £1,462.00
  • Band D - £1,645.00
  • Band E - £2,010.00
  • Band F - £2,376.00
  • Band G - £2,741.00
  • Band H - £3,290.00

Q.

Where look for ascertain whether the Rottingdean conservation area I am buying in is in a poor state?

A.

Local conservation areas are set up by the local Lewes planning authority, who regulate the state of the area including things like poorly maintained roads, dormer windows and what can be demolished. Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain a detailed list on the state of repair of conservation areas in England along with the exposure to deterioration.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a church rectory in the parish of Up Waltham. Is a chancel search required?

A.

A Rottingdean conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Although some church councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Unexpected financial circumstances mean we would prefer to complete on the legal work on a leasehold apartment within 5 weeks, do you any really fast solicitors in Rottingdean ?

A.

Usually Rottingdean solicitors are very ponderous which usually adds huge amounts of stress to the house conveyancing process.
