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.

What exploration about the risk and history of possible flooding in West Sussex will my conveyancer in West Wittering give an account of?

A.

A vital part of the legal due diligence procedure involved in buying a home involves a conveyancing lawyer carrying out conveyancing searches (environmental) that go into details about the potential West Wittering flooding. At the time of writing (16-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the West Wittering at the coastal areas between Thorney Island and Bracklesham, including Bosham, West Itchenor and West Wittering

Q.

What can we do when buying a home in a Havant council designated conservation area ?

A.

Havant council enquiries conducted by your West Wittering property lawyer during the legal process should check the existence of the appropriate formal approval for modifications to the building. If no suitable consents be available, your conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the best alternative which can include getting covered by an indemnity policy or obtaining retrospective permission from Havant local authority.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Forties semi-detached Band A property in West Wittering?

A.

Q.

The web is full of a number of online manuals going into great depth on doing your own legal work. Do I actually have to use conveyancing solicitor in West Wittering ?

A.

Should you want to do so, you can practically take care of he bulk of the if not all of the conveyancing without the services of an experienced conveyancing solicitor in West Wittering. That said, a solicitor handles a long list of assignments such as liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries or checking for any restrictive covenants most of which really need the relevant training. Essentially do it yourself conveyancers are taking risks without the appropriate professional indemnity insurance which every lawyers will take out.

Q.

If we are intending to buy near West Wittering, in the parish of Selsey, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your property solicitor might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is found. In West Wittering's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

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.

At what point do we need to speak to a conveyancing solicitor in West Wittering?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. Promptly instructing a solicitor for your West Wittering transaction for a sale may mean that information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.
