Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £101,000 property? We need a fixed rate conveyancing estimate in Shoreham By Sea.

A.

Many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in small print that home owners often do not check. Your conveyancing quote ought to define costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursments).Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How much time does conveyancing take? We have already found a buyer.

A.

For the majority of buyers and sellers, the amount of time needed to buy or sell a property will vary. This is based on a number of issues which may affect the property. These may include if there is a mortgage. Homeward Legal solicitors work hard to ensure your move is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

The practice of deciding to reject an offer which has been accepted when a better one is made by another buyer is called gazumping. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a law firm early.

Q.

The internet has a plethora of handbooks giving details on by passing the solicitor such as Buying, Selling and Letting Property by David Hampshire . Do we necessarily need to spend money on a solicitor in Shoreham By Sea ?

A.

There is no reason why a buyer cant take care of the legal work on your own.

That said, a conveyancing solicitor carries out a large array of jobs e.g. chasing outstanding papers or collating and preparing contract and package most of which require a qualified professional. AT any rate legal firms will carry the appropriate cover to protect you in the event of any carelessness on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

I am purchasing a investment property in a conservation area. Where does one locate more details in relation to the state of repair of the area?

A.

Conservation areas in Shoreham By Sea are set up by Adur who govern conservation area concerns from what can be developed to the avoidance of new developments. English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a detailed list on the state of repair of conservation areas along with the risk of the area falling into disrepair.

Q.

What is the best point to I make arrangements with the house removal firm?

A.

The ideal way is to wait before a removal firm until after you have scheduled a formal date that generally takes place once contracts are signed.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Shoreham By Sea identified when purchasing a property?

A.

We are buying on a ex-industrial site. It appears to be the case that copper top-soil contamination may be an issue.
