Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £383,000 residence? We are looking for affordable conveyancing in Seaford.

A.

This topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs may inflate your final invoice. Additional costs listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear. A quote must also state any disbursements.Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Will we need to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a home next to a church constructed around the 14th Century in Seaford.

A.

In Seaford, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of a local church. Several sources are used to determine liability in Seaford, including parish archives. Ecclesiastical properties in the area include St Leonard's and St Luke's.

Q.

What amount of time does conveyancing usually require? The property is also local.

A.

The amount of time required to transfer a house can vary. This is affected by a handful of considerations. These could include situations where another party does not quickly respond an enquiry. We ensure every purchase is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

Does Seaford include many conservation areas?

A.

Parts of Seaford considered be of architectural merit, like model housing estates, may be recognised as conservation areas. A lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities and offer more information.

Q.

Should we get a house surveyor to review the home purchase?

A.

It is strongly suggested that all purchasers arrange a property surveyor to perform a survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of issues which affect a property, which include dry rot or flat roof leaks, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Is a leasehold supplement a fee or disbursement?

A.

A quote will itemise fees and disbursements, clearly stating which is which. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be clearly stated in your quote.

Q.

Should we opt for the conveyancing solicitor named by the agent?

A.

It is common for agents in Winnersh to refer a law firm. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Will there be any hidden charges?

A.

Our solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden charges whatsoever. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which they will not be required to adhere to.
