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.

How is stamp duty worked out and what should we budget for a £463k West Sussex residential property?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed is calculated based on the purchase price of the house or flat. It will be £13890 on a £463k house or flat.

Q.

What can the fees for searches come to?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches in West Sussex noticeably varies, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. These searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged at cost.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Surrey has referred the conveyancing who they generally use. Do we need to use this firm?

It is commonplace for estate agents to suggest a conveyancing solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel search? I am buying a West Sussex residence close by a vicarage.

A.

There are thousands of parishes across England and Wales. Owners of property within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. Parochial Church Councils in West Sussex must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process.

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.

What length of time does conveyancing legal work often take in West Sussex?

A.

Generally speaking, the number of weeks taken to transact a property may vary, according to a broad set of concerns. With our solicitors, each client is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Shrewd purchasers know to choose a conveyancing firm as quickly as they can so there is time for a thorough review. prior to the auction.
