Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor quote to own a property. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Various law firms promote cheap conveyancing. Often extra costs can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges should be reasonable and be applied only where your lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Saltdean a problem?

A.

A broad range of contaminants caused by environmental factors may affect land, and an environmental search should reveal whether a specific plot of land is impacted by Saltdean contaminants like coal mining and existing and proposed overhead electricity cables.

Q.

Do we need to get a chancel search when my partner and I are buying in Saltdean?

A.

Where land in Saltdean was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise upkeep of specific local church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Saltdean property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Church of England properties in this area include St Nicholas.

Q.

We are on a very small budget , Can doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the assistance of a solicitor in Saltdean save any money?

Legally speaking there is no reason at all why a home seller shouldn't look after the your own conveyancing without assistance. However, a solicitor in Saltdean juggles a large number of actions such as raising additional enquiries and ensuring the seller is the rightful owner most of which require a qualified solicitor.

Q.

Q.

Our local agent has suggested a lawyer. Is it advisable to instruct them?

A.

The St Asaph agent will be able to pressure a conveyancing solicitor they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore pressure a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

How early should you instruct a conveyancer to handle our sale?

A.

If you use a conveyancing solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier, the better, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Saltdean sale or purchase can reduce any chance of the transaction stalling.
