Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need a discount conveyancing quote in Steyning.

A.

Various firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra charges will be included in the terms that unknowing home owners have not reviewed Any additional costs should be fair.

Q.

I am buying a 1950s investment flat within a conservation area, how do we find more details on the current standard of upkeep?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have created a detailed list of the condition of conservation areas along with the risk of the area falling into disrepair. Local Steyning conservation areas are nominated by the local Adur planning authority, who oversee conservation area concerns from area development to the stoppage of poorly maintained roads.

Q.

Do we need to instruct the law firm referred by our local agent?

A.

It is common practice for agents to refer a solicitors firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Wisborough Green, near Steyning?

A.

The solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the building being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Would you advise that we get a chancel search? We are buying a house in Steyning.

A.

Property owners proximate to local churches are expected to cover the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Terms used in a property's name, like 'priory', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church of England properties in Steyning include St Andrew and St Cuthman.

Q.

Are costs for obtaining copies of planning permission fees or disbursements?

A.

Unfortunately, some firms may attempt to pass off extra costs as necessary disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it should be included. These costs are fees not disbursements. It should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

I have got a conveyancing quote from you. Will we be expected to pay any hidden costs?

A.

No. We will never charge any hidden extra charges under any circumstances.

Q.

We are shortly going to be finally moving from our period house in Steyning to a bigger property in Southwick what is the best point to book a removals firm?

A.

Your solicitor would will advise that sellers put off arranging removals until after exchange of contracts as beforehand generally an actual home moving date wont have been agreed. Local firms include Lomer G A & Son Ltd, 17 Kings Stone Avenue, Steyning, BN44 3FJ on 01273 491249.
