I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Walderslade. Can you assist?


Various solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the small print. The quote should also clearly state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Any fees included in terms of engagement ought to be fair and reasonable. They only apply to matters if your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Should I be concerned about gazumping?


Gazumping arises when a house seller accepts an offer and later rejects it. Instead, they then go for another purchaser's offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of gazumping. Instructing a property solicitor early to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.


Is your solicitor team able to handle fast completions on the conveyancing for property auction properties in Walderslade?


Our residential property lawyers do frequently do the legal work for auction buyers and sellers. Lawyers usually recommend bidders to instruct a SRA regulated conveyancing company in advance of the auction to allow adequate time for a detailed review.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day arrives you are the conveyancing solicitor needs to be able to concentrate on finish the auction conveyancing process in less than 28 days, a requirement of terms of sale.


We are buying a 1940s flat within a conservation area. Where does one find more data in relation to the state of repair?


English Heritage, a government body, maintain records in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas along with the exposure to deterioration. Local conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Tonbridge and Malling) who maintain things like upkeep of paths to rundown streets.


Which lenders in Walderslade do you work with?


We can work in conjunction with most lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Walderslade, including Mortgage Doctor, 56 Mckenzie Rd, Chatham, ME5 8DJ, and Mortgage Store, 33 Goad Av, Chatham, ME5 8DT. Your conveyancing solicitors can state specific lenders' requirements.


Can you advise how to defer paying SDLT?


Homeward Legal firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines.


Will I need a building surveyor to inspect the house purchase?


It is highly recommended that most Walderslade buyers arrange a RICS surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are many concerns that will impact a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, including subsidence.


If I am intending to buy in the parish of Wingham, do we need a chancel search?


The Walderslade conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the house being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
