Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I need fixed rate Winchelsea conveyancing.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk look after the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Winchelsea?

A.

We are accustomed to working with bidders at auction. It is not uncommon for unusual lots are purchased at auction which tend to demand further investigation. Conveyancers therefore suggest buyers at auction to formally instruct a SRA regulated lawyer prior to the auction so there is time for a title report of the auction pack. Q.

I am buying a church rectory in the parish of Frant. Will a chancel search be important?

The solicitor could advise that a chancel search is taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In Winchelsea's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Frant, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

A.

Most soils in Winchelsea have some degree of contamination, from industry, agriculture and the natural environment . Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contaminants like oil.

A.

Land is contaminated by a range of naturally-occurring factors, like radioactive substances in the region. An environmental search should offer more information.

A.

The normal procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Winchelsea searches, which may include a Limestone Search.
