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.

Following recent news about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began, I am apprehensive that environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A Rottingdean property lawyer will carry out environmental searches if the initial searches identifies any kind of Rottingdean flood risk.

You may be able to converse with a local resident to gain more confidence.

Q.

Are there any areas of conservation in Rottingdean?

A.

Areas deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as 18th century suburbs, will be designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the local authority for further information, but your lawyer will address this during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Is it imprudent to carry out the conveyancing on a DIY basis on our own.

A.

Legally speaking there are no arguments why a home mover shouldn't handle the your own conveyancing unaided.

In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a huge array of exercises e.g. approving enquiries on searches or ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors many of which are more safely handled with appropriate training.

Q.

What do 'conveyancing searches' appertain to?

A.

Conveyancing searches are queries ordered by your conveyancing solicitor via one of several specific organisations, and consider issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

Is lithium (Li) frequently found to affect Rottingdean soil?

A.

Rottingdean agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.

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.
