The confusion over this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'.

The conveyancing solicitor will carry out standard environmental searches, which include Southwick area flood risk data. A more specialist flood risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) may be proposed by a qualified Southwick conveyancing solicitor if the results of the initial searches show flood risk to the property.Q.

Our residential property lawyers often get instructed by buyers and sellers at auction. We invariably suggest auction buyers to select the conveyancing firm in advance of the auction to allow for a full investigation of the sellers legal pack. Thereafter, following the actual auction, a lawyer should be focused on finalise all of the legal work in 28 days after exchange as required by the terms of sale.Q.
No. We never hide any additional costs under any circumstances. You should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.Q.
Where land in Southwick was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of repairs to a medieval church. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Southwick ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be necessary include Holy Trinity, St Columba, St James and St Mary the Virgin.
