We are looking for a low cost conveyancing quote in Southwick. What do I need to check for?


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'. However extra charges will be included in small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Should I select the property lawyer who usually works with by my agent?


Agent recommendations are a common route for buyers to find a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.


I have got a quote from you. Are there any hidden costs?


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.


What causes Southwick sale conveyancing to require so much time and effort?


The legal work required to buy or sell property could be lengthy even in the best of circumstances. Sometimes, the causes are out of a lawyer's control, we, however, seek to minimise

the consequences of these delays where it is possible to do so. Common delays include a slow firm acting for the lender.


Do I need a chancel liability search? I am purchasing a residence in Southwick.


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.


In a few weeks I am shortly going to be finally moving out of our period residence near Southwick to our next home in Shoreham By Sea . At what stage to select a removals firm?


Our recommendation is to delay arranging the removals company until such time as all parties have formally agreed a formal completion date that takes place following shortly after when final contracts are signed.

For a local West Sussex company Needhams Removals, 7 The Twitten, Southwick, Brighton, BN42 4DB Telephone: 01273 889403 or Needhams Removals, The Twitten, Southwick, Brighton, BN42 4DB on 07955 201197.


Will the property's fixtures and fittings include things such as fitted gas or electric fires?


Mainly, fixtures are fixed items, such as light fixtures to floors, walls and ceilings, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


What is the council tax on a period detached dwelling in Southwick?


As a rule the conveyancer's title report should give the relevant Sunderland council tax band. The latest tax rates for properties in Southwick are tabled at the Sunderland local authority site. Currently on 05 December 2012 the rates are:

  • Band A - £896.00
