We need to find a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a share of freehold house. Will we get a quote or and estimate?


Many online and high street firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges may be added into small print. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on a conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


What can a Kingsnorth conveyancing solicitor do when the home I hope to invest in is located in a conservation area and has unsanctioned roof aerials installed?


Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will ascertain whether the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have requisite consent.


Might the charges for our conveyancing conceal any hidden costs?


Regrettably, the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. Our solicitors will not charge any additional charges. Be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be bound to.


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like curtains?


In the main, fixtures are 'fixed' to walls, floors or ceilings securely and fixtures are free-standing items, like a dishwasher. In order to avoid later issues, a fixtures and fittings form should be completed and will confirm what will be sold with the property.


The property being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. It appears that vanadium (V) topsoil contamination may be an issue.


With the history of industry in parts of Kingsnorth, top-soil contamination is difficult to avoid. The local authority for Kingsnorth will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.


What steps can I take to hold off paying for stamp duty to the Revenue?


Homeward Legal do not recommend conveyancing clients get involved with any stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been a number of government initiatives, such as for first-time buyers.


What is the council tax on a Sixties semi-detached building in Kingsnorth?


Typically a conveyancer's title report should cover the Medway council tax band.

The correct rates for homes in Kingsnorth are set out in detail online at the Medway council website. At the time of authoring, 26/12/2012, rates are:

As a consequence of the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 10-12 years we are concerned that flood searches aren't exacting enough?


Flood risk searches carried out by your Kingsnorth property solicitor should include the far more specialist search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still apprehensive try to speak to a local resident.
