Q.

I need to find a firm that offers cheap conveyancing in West Sussex. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs may pad your solicitor's invoice. A quote for conveyancing in West Sussex must also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Is a building survey required when we are buying a house or flat, regardless of its age, in West Sussex?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly suggest that home buyers in West Sussex book a house survey. There are many issues that will impact a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation. These include rotten roof timbers or settlement.

Q.

Why does the purchase conveyancing process in West Sussex require so much time and effort?

A.

Conveyancing will occasionally be held up. We understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and aim to minimise their effect where feasible to do so by driving the transaction forward. Common delays can include waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

Can we check if the house we are buying is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas protect areas of historic or architectural significance. Conservation areas in West Sussex include Southlands. The benefits of such restrictions will include a more attractive neighbourhood, but they can make repairs more costly or time-consuming.

Q.

What are West Sussex's 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Conveyancing searches are common set of enquiries requested by your conveyancing solicitor with a particular authority. Buyers in West Sussex should consider that, searches cover solely issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

We plan to purchase a rectory in the parish of East Guldeford. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

A lawyer could recommend a chancel search. In older areas of West Sussex, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a residence where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without using a West Sussex property lawyer is becoming possible when buying a home. Would it be reckless ?

A.

There is no argument why a home seller should not embark on the your own conveyancing without West Sussex conveyancing solicitor. The truth is however that a conveyancer handles a significant number of exercises including chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries or identifying the most appropriate searches most of which are more safely handled with appropriate experience.

Q.

We are in a contract race situation, and need guarantee fast conveyancing, what should we guarantee to speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

Finding a experienced solicitor is crucial to buying faster. When identifying an appropriate a solicitor, consider these points: Will they order searches immediately? Was there a delay delivering a quote? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
