Q.

I am intending to purchase a property in East Barming, so should we get a chancel search?

Your solicitor could certainly recommend procuring a chancel search. In Broadstairs' much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the previous owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Are there many areas of conservation in Broadstairs?

Buyers in Broadstairs should be aware that there are several local conservation areas. Your solicitor will be able to advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities, with regards to specific conservation areas in Broadstairs.

Q.

Doing one’s own conveyancing in Broadstairs without a property solicitor seems like a good way to reduce costs, but would it be foolhardy?

There is no legal impediment why you shouldn’t engage in the legal and technical conveyancing work without the assistance of an expert solicitor in Broadstairs if you really wanted to. However, a property lawyer typically handles a long list of actions (such as approving completion statements, or reading and interpreting the lease), many of which are better done by someone with training and experience. Even more importantly, DIY-conveyancers will not be covered by the appropriate insurance cover, which qualified legal firms are required to carry by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Our team at Homeward Legal is waiting for your call and to help on 0800 038 6699.

Q.

To complete on our freehold residence purchase in Broadstairs as quickly as possible, how can we guarantee fast conveyancing?

As is often stated by Homeward Legal, employing a proactive and diligent solicitor as soon as possible is crucial to fast conveyancing. Beyond that, there are numerous tasks you, as the purchaser, could do, such as:

  • arranging your mortgage offer early
  • keeping in regular contact with the solicitor and applying pressure if you suspect any unnecessary delays
  • completing and returning all forms as soon as possible
Q.

Is tenancy agreement vetting a fee or disbursement?

It may not be obvious whether an itemised charge is a fee or a disbursement in most legal practices’ quotes and bills because of the way they present the charges and the terminology they use. However, this charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

Our £759,000 purchase in Broadstairs is completing soon, so what will be calculated for the stamp duty?

The Stamp Duty payable is dependent on the property's value, and is triggered if it is bought for more than £125,000. On a £759,000 house, the stamp duty will be £27,950.

Q.

How long should I expect it to take our property solicitor to complete all of the conveyancing work for the top floor of house we want to buy in Broadstairs?

Our proactive property lawyers at Homeward Legal are highly focused on communication and completing the process as speedily as realistically possible, with a target of at most six weeks.

In a few weeks I am expecting to move from our period property in Broadstairs into a new house in Birchington , when to select a house removal firm?
