Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Many law firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are often hiding in the small print. Applicable disbursements should be included on your quote Any fees which are listed in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable and be applicable solely where the lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Selsey?

A.

Areas considered to be of historical or architectural value, like 19th century suburbs, may be recognised as conservation areas. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information.

Q.

Our mortgage lender will be Irish Permanent - what do we need to check?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in higher legal costs for purchasers if their solicitor cannot act for the lender. Homeward Legal can act for many CML-approved lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern for any homes in Selsey?

A.

Property in Selsey will be contaminated by a broad range of human activities, and an environmental search will confirm that a property may be affected by contaminants including other land contamination.

Q.

Do your panel of solicitors administer the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Selsey?

A.

Our company is able to act for bidders at auction. Normally unusually constructed lots are included in auctions which require further examination before completing. We therefore strongly encourage bidders to instruct their lawyer prior to the auction to allow sufficient time for a thorough review of the auction pack. Thereafter, following the day of the auction, your lawyer should be able to concentrate on complete the purchase legal work in less than the usual 28 days as typically required by the terms of sale.

Q.

If I am buying in the parish of Bramshott, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Selsey parish you are purchasing in, a conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search. In older areas of Selsey, chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a detached Band B house in Selsey?

A.

The council tax band should ordinarily be given in the title report, as well as by the local council. The correct rates for homes in Selsey are set out online at the Chichester council site. At the time of writing on 19 September 2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £984.00
  • Band B - £1,148.00
  • Band C - £1,312.00
  • Band D - £1,476.00
  • Band E - £1,804.00
  • Band F - £2,132.00
  • Band G - £2,460.00
  • Band H - £2,953.00

Q.

We are going to move out of our semi detached property just outside Selsey into our next house in Pulborough what is the best point to instruct a home removal firm?

A.

We will advocate that sellers hold off arranging removals until the point where the contracts have exchanged because a final move date will not have been confirmed. For a local firm Bennetts Removals & Deliveries Ltd, 31 St. Itha Road, Selsey, Chichester, PO20 0AA Telephone: 01243 829827 or Eurosurv Removals & Transport Ltd, 20 Manor Road, Selsey, Chichester, PO20 0SD on 01243 604629.
