Q.

We are looking for a law firm that offers cheap conveyancing in St Leonards On Sea. Can you assist?

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees are often hiding in the small print that homeowners often do not check. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state applicable disbursements. Additional fees needs to be clearly defined and be applied only where the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £988,000 home, what should we do?

  • promptly completing and return any forms
  • arranging your mortgage offer

Q.

How long may the legal work to sell an apartment take? I am buying in St Leonards On Sea.

A.

The number of weeks taken to buy or sell a home does vary. This wide range results from a range of issues. These may include whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, but we work for a deadline of six weeks.

Q.

What will a St Leonards On Sea property lawyer do if the house we want to buy is in a conservation area and has incongruous roof antenna installed?

A.

Hastings local authority enquiries carried out by your St Leonards On Sea conveyancing solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will ascertain if the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of planning consent for alterations will be requested. Should no authority consents be produced, your St Leonards On Sea conveyancing solicitor will recommend the alternatives which include getting covered by an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective permission from Hastings planning authority.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the aid of a St Leonards On Sea property solicitor is becoming possible when buying and selling a home. However be a false economy ?

A.

Hypothetically there is absolutely no argument at all why a home mover shouldn't conduct your own conveyancing yourself.

However, a conveyancer in St Leonards On Sea takes care of a huge array of roles from such as drafting contracts and reading the lease some of which are better done by someone with adequate training.
