Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing in Bearsted?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions, left unread by preoccupied homeowners Applicable disbursements should be included on your conveyancing quote Any costs listed in the solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined and 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 offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

What is the authority that is obliged for safeguarding the state of repair of the conservation areas in Bearsted?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a list of the condition of conservation areas in Kent and throughout England. Local conservation areas like public spaces, extensions or neglected buildings are managed by the local authority (Maidstone).

Q.

As a result of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall we are questioning if environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

A thorough conveyancing solicitor in Bearsted will suggest that you get additional informative environmental searches if the environmental searches flag up any kind of Bearsted area flood risk

It could be worth trying to also converse with a local resident for that added local history.

Q.

Could Bearsted soil be contaminated by aluminium?

A.

Legislation exists to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as trichloroethylene.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £665,000 property, what can we do to speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

Essential to a fast conveyancing transaction is to instruct a proactive, diligent lawyer. Consider the following:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Do they order searches immediately?

Q.

How long will it take the conveyancing solicitor to complete all of the legal process for a maisonette in a Regency house in Bearsted?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from around a month to 12 weeks, which can depend on a number of factors like the speed of the seller's property solicitor, or the completeness of the management information. Our chosen solicitors are very results-focused completing the process as quickly as we possibly can.

Q.

Which particular property searches conveyancing searches will a Bearsted conveyancing solicitor get on a Bearsted flat?

A.

Standard conveyancing protocol is to get Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environmental and occasionally less common searches, which may include a Official Search of Whole with Priority (OS1).

Q.

If we are intending to buy near Bearsted, in the parish of Throwley, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could advise a chancel search, whichever parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some church councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be free from liability. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
