Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing quote. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many online and high street firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Any extra costs should be fair and reasonable. The quote ought to list any disbursements.Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will we need a house surveyor to view this home purchase?

A.

It is suggested that all buyers book a home surveyor. There can be a range of concerns that can negatively affect a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, such as failed double glazing and chimney defects.

Q.

What factors can affect land in Uckfield. Will they be comprehensively investigated?

A.

A range of contaminants could impact residential property in Uckfield, like air pollution. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

Why might purchase conveyancing take such a long time?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property could be exposed to significant delays even in ideal circumstances. Sometimes, these delays are beyond the solicitor's influence, we, however, aim to diminish their cost where feasible to do so by using fast search providers.

Q.

Does the title report prepared by the lawyer in Uckfield advise on the cost of the council tax on a Band C house before completing on the purchase?

A.

Your conveyancer will speak to the appropriate council to find out the latest council tax charges which will be set out in the conveyancer's title report. Council tax rates for Uckfield are set out at the Wealden local authority website. Currently (18 October 2012) rates are:

  • Band A - £1,088.00
  • Band B - £1,270.00
  • Band C - £1,451.00
  • Band D - £1,632.00
  • Band E - £1,995.00
  • Band F - £2,358.00
  • Band G - £2,721.00
  • Band H - £3,265.00

Q.

How many weeks should the conveyancing process generally require, in your experience? I need a fast service.

A.

The time taken to transact residential property may vary, dependent on several legal considerations such as if management information is required. Nationwide, the average is around ten weeks, but we take a more proactive attitude, pushing a transaction to complete within 8 weeks if possible.

Q.

We are buying an extended property in one of the conservation areas. How does one find more data relating to the state of upkeep?

A.

English Heritage keep a detailed list on the state of repair of conservation areas in Uckfield and across England along with the vulnerability to standards slipping. Local conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Wealden) who preserve everything from paths and footpaths to the hindrance of derelict buildings.

Q.

Do I need to instruct the law firm that works with by our agent?

A.

Many agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may decide to recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
