Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees may inflate the final bill. A quote for conveyancing in Rye ought to list any disbursements.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a house in Barlavington. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will not continue to be so.

Q.

We are intending to buy a sixties maisonette in a designated Rye conservation area, how do I lay my hands on more data concerning the state of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain a detailed list of the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability to getting worse. Local Rye conservation areas are created by the local authority (Shepway) who regulate conservation area concerns from paths and footpaths to the inhibition of back illuminated signs.

Q.

We are planning to buy a new build property, is it that significant that conveyancing searches are performed?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a commonly-used pack of enquiries performed in the interest of the purchaser, such as a coal mining search. Searches are not property surveys and are unable to address physical defects.

Q.

How much time will the conveyancing process need?

A.

On average, the time required to sell or purchase a property is not wholly predictable, based on potentially many issues affecting the property, for example, where a party does not quickly respond an enquiry. Our conveyancing solicitors strive to ensure your sale, purchase or remortgage is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

Is it recommended that we get a chancel search? We are buying a Rye property close by a glebe.

A.

Owners of property proximate to older church buildings are expected to cover the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Some names or words such as 'abbey' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church properties in Rye include St Mary.

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that do the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Rye?

A.

Homeward Legal is accustomed to working with auction buyers and sellers. Normally hard to value buildings are listed at auction and these demand further investigation. We therefore strongly recommend that purchasers instruct a residential conveyancing company prior to the date of the auction to allow sufficient time for a full investigation of the documents.

Thereafter, following the auction day, the property conveyancing lawyer needs to be focused on quickly get through the transaction in less than 28 days after exchange of contracts as typically required by the standard auction conditions.

Q.

Harpenden Building Society will be our mortgage lender, what will we need to consider?

A.

Buyers should consider that, over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in higher conveyancing costs for purchasers if their solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. We can act for many mortgage lenders.
