How do I get affordable conveyancing?


Several solicitors advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra costs may pad your solicitor's invoice.

The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


Which environmental factors can affect land in Canterbury, and should they be a concern?


Land is contaminated by a broad range of environmental factors, like proposed erection of mobile masts or proximity to waste sites. An environmental search should offer more information. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Broad Oak Road, CT2 0PR.


We are going to buy a 1950s investment property within a conservation area. How do we uncover more data in relation to the state of repair of the area?

English Heritage have assembled records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Canterbury are set up by the local authority (Canterbury) who administer everything from paths and footpaths to the inhibition of street clutter.


What average time should it take for the conveyancing solicitor to finish all of the conveyancing work for a semi detached Victorian home we want to buy?


The process can take anywhere between a month and three months depending on a number of issues for example the speed of the seller's conveyancer, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain.

Our highly conveyancers are very proactive with the goal of you moving home as quickly as possible.


How can the conveyancing process in Canterbury have so many delays?

Some causes are unhappily out of the solicitor's hands, Homeward Legal, however, appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and endeavour to minimise the effect of these delays by using fast search providers.


Can you recommend how I bypass paying out for stamp duty to HM Revenue?


Stamp duty is usually payable for property over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation scheme should be treated with extreme caution in Canterbury. These schemes are costly and unreliable.


As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record I am asking whether environmental searches aren't exacting enough?


Flood risk searches conducted by a Canterbury conveyancing solicitor will also include the far more informative flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are apprehensive why not visit a neighbour of the property or nearby Kent flood damage business for example: Rainbow International, Unit 4-5 City Business Park/Marshwood Cl, Canterbury, CT1 1DX Tel: 01227 459644.
