Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing?

A.

Many solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any additional costs should be fair.

Q.

What type of research into the uncertain risk of a flood to properties in Kent will my Chatham property solicitor give an account of?

A.

An integral component in the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves a conveyancer making an application for property environmental searches that set out some details on the subject of Chatham flood risk area data.

Q.

In 1 month we are hoping to move from our period house near Chatham into our new house in Canterbury , what is the best point to choose a home removal firm?

A.

Our recommendation is for home movers to delay booking the removals company until such time as you and the other side has accepted by both parties your completion date that takes place after contracts are signed.

The greater majority of house removals companies may charge a change of date fee . Local home mover companies

include Regal Removals & Storage, The Old School House/The Historic Dockyard, Chatham, ME4 4TZ Telephone: 01634 406564 or Phillips F J & Son, 376a Canterbury Street, Gillingham, ME7 5LD on 01634 856433.

Q.

The estate agent has referred the lawyer who they generally use. Should we use them?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers may suggest a conveyancing solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Chatham?

A.

Chatham is located in Medway Council, Gun Wharf, Dock Road, Chatham, Kent, ME4 4TR, contact: 01634 333 333

Q.

Do you advise that I get searches for chancel liability? We are buying on the same road as a 15th Century rectory manor in Chatham.

A.

Property owners neighbouring nearby church property are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in Chatham, including the Title Register database. Church properties in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include Emmaus Church Centre, St. Mary's Island Church, St David and Blue Bell Hill St Albans.

Q.

Could our conveyancing incorporate any hidden fees?

A.

No. Our solicitors will never charge any additional costs for any reason. You should be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £879,000 house, what can we do to accelerate our move?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to instruct a proactive property lawyer. There are numerous tasks you, as the purchaser, can also do, including, calling or emailing your property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays, promptly answering your property lawyer's questions (by email if possible) and arranging any finances require to complete the purchase.
