Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Numerous law firms promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs can inflate the final bill. Your conveyancing quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements). Any additional costs which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined.

Q.

Does my West Wittering conveyancing solicitor carry out any conveyancing searches on the Hampshire Sixties terraced cottage we are buying?

A.

The normal conveyancing procedure will be to get Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches for example HS2 report.

Q.

Are there any areas of conservation in West Wittering?

A.

There are several conservation areas near or within West Wittering. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. A solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like electric or gas fires?

In the main, fixtures are 'fixed' to walls, floors or ceilings, whereas fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Do you work with mortgage lenders with West Wittering branches?

A.

We work with the vast majority of lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in West Wittering, like I S Mortgages Ltd, 12 Sherwood Close, Liss, GU33 7BT, Tailored Mortgages, A/4 Rose Green Rd, Bognor Regis, PO21 3EX, and Davies Mark, Edgehill Farmhouse, Byworth, Petworth, GU28 0HR. Your solicitor can carry out any relevant lender-imposed searches or checks.

Q.

Should I make use of the law firm suggested by our estate agent in Thurston?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to refer a conveyancing firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

How many weeks can we account for the legal work to sell residential property generally require in West Wittering?

A.

The time taken to transact a home varies. This is according to a number of issues. These may include where a party does not quickly respond an enquiry. With Homeward Legal, your sale or purchase is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search? We are buying a apartment on the same street as a rectory in West Wittering.

A.

Property owners in a neighbourhood near nearby church land are expected to cover the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in West Wittering must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Churches in West Wittering where chancel liability may apply include St Peter & St Paul.
