How do I find a cheap solicitor to own a residence?


Many online and high street firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement that homeowners often do not check. Costs included in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. They only come into force where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


The Gravesend property being purchased is on a ex-industrial use land. What should we do regarding iron (Fe) soil contamination?


Gravesend industrial or agricultural can cause soil contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Gravesend, including local authorities.


Should we order a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Snave, near Gravesend?


Regardless of the Gravesend parish you are buying in, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Does the Gravesend lawyer investigate the risk of possible flooding to properties in Gravesend for a residential property we are going to purchase?


A qualified property conveyancing lawyer will apply for standard property environmental searches, which include Gravesend flood risk data.


If I am buying close to a 12th Century glebe in Gravesend, will I need to get a chancel search?


Owners of property in a neighbourhood near a medieval church may be required to fund repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Gravesend church lands where a chancel search may be necessary include Ifield St Margaret, Milton St Peter & St Paul, St Aidan and Milton-nextChrist Church.


As a result of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall we are anxious that flood risk searches won't be detailed enough?


Environmental searches handled by your lawyer in Gravesend should include the far more detailed flood search if required.

If you remain worried you can always approach a local resident.


Is contaminated land in Gravesend an issue for residences?


Numerous of contaminants caused by naturally-occurring factors can lessen the desirability land in Gravesend, like civil aviation activity in the area and waste disposal sites. An environmental search will give more detail.


I am planning on buying a period investment flat in a designated Gravesend conservation area, where can I find more information in relation to the standard of repair of the Gravesend conservation area?


English Heritage, a government body, administer a list of the state of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Gravesend are created by Gravesham who administer everything from public spaces to the deterrence of poorly maintained pavements.
