How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £92k property?


This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees may pad your solicitor's invoice. Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


As a consequence of the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall, I am wondering whether environmental searches may not be detailed enough?


Conveyancing and environmental searches carried out by a Sandwich conveyancer will include the far more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still nervous consider contacting a future neighbour.


I am buying in Sandwich. How can we verify that the house is in a conservation area?


There are several areas of conservation around Sandwich. These restrictions adds to upkeep costs, but the benefits include an increase in local property values. Your property solicitor will advise further.


How is contaminated land in Sandwich investigated when buying a house?

Residential property may be contaminated by many naturally-occurring factors. Contaminants like existing and proposed overhead electricity cables will be considered as part of the environmental searches. Ramsgate Road, CT13 9NJ may be one source of local contamination.


In what ways can my Sandwich conveyancing solicitor advise us on the risk of a flood around Sandwich for an investment property I am buying?


A conveyancing solicitor applies for formal environmental searches that should include Sandwich flood risk area data. A substantially more specific search, such as the Landmark search, could be recommended by a Sandwich property lawyer if the results of the initial conveyancing searches identify a potential flood risk to the investment property.


I have read about handling the legal work as a buyer of a maisonette. Would it be reasonable to take care of all of the legal work without any help?


Should you want to try, you can conceivably look after the bulk of the legal and technical work without a qualified lawyer in Sandwich .

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a huge number of roles from including liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries and apportioning service charges many of which are better done by someone with a qualified professional. Even more importantly amateur lawyers do not have appropriate indemnity insurance which all solicitors firms are made responsible to be covered by.


If you are buying a flat conversion on the same road as an ecclesiastical parish in Sandwich, is it advisable that I get a chancel search?


Some owners in Sandwich can be required to fund upkeep of a local church. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Ecclesiastical properties in this area include St Clement and The Carpenter's Arms.


Is a mining search passed on at cost?


A quote will clearly list all disbursements and fees. This charge, for example, is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.
