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.

Apparently, uranium (U) soil contamination may be an issue in Seaford. Can you advise?

A.

Most soils in Seaford have some degree of contamination, from industrial or agricultural. Metal contamination of soil in Seaford is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like water contaminants such as phenols and ammonia, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Our lender will be the Co-operative Bank, what will I need to consider?

A.

In some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We are able to act on behalf of many lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Why does purchase conveyancing work take such a long time?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally be exposed to significant delays. We know how distracting such delays can be and strive to reduce the effect of these delays whenever feasible. Common delays can include issues elsewhere in a chain.

Q.

I am purchasing a church rectory in Chailey. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Seaford parish in which you are purchasing, a conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search. In Seaford's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

We are purchasing a £209k Seaford property. What will be worked out for stamp duty tax?

A.

The Stamp Duty you will owe is based on the purchase price. It is £2090 on a £209k home.*

Q.

Environmental searches are standard procedure but considering recent events for example the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began are they actually good enough to determine enough about the Seaford flood risk area?

A.

Property environmental searches handled by a Seaford conveyancing solicitor should include a more informative search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still anxious you can approach a neighbour of the property or regional East Sussex flood repair builder, for example: Robinson Bros, Sutton Rd, Seaford, BN25 4QH Tel: 01323 491998.

Q.

What search enquiries will the Seaford conveyancer get when acting on a Seaford flat?

A.

Normal conveyancing procedure is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental and Gypsum as well as any specific local searches e.g. a Subsidence report.
