Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Dover for a £664,000 property?

A.

Several firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, however additional fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary homeowners fail to check. Your quote ought to list applicable disbursements.

Q.

Do we need to get a chancel liability search? I am purchasing in Dover.

A.

Property owners near to a church in the area may be required to cover the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Dover must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Dover Church of England properties include St Martin, St Mary the Virgin and St. Mary in Castro (St. Mary in the Castle) Garrison Church, Castle.

Q.

In 3 months we are expecting to move out of our semi detached home in Dover to a larger home in Deal , what is the right point to select a removals firm?

A.

Most property lawyers usually advise that buyers and sellers put off organising removals until such time as contracts have exchanged as in advance of this in all probability a date wont have been firmed up.

Routinely removals companies might impose a late cancellation fine . Try Gavin Keith R, 20 Northbourne Av, Dover, CT17 0BY Telephone: 01304 203586 or Rich Removals, Po Box 332, Dover, CT17 0YF on 01304 202527.

Q.

Please tell us why the conveyancing work takes so long?

A.

Dover conveyancing can be held up by myriad unpredictable issues. We strive to reduce their cost by chasing for prompt responses. Delays include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

Co-operative Bank will be our lender, what will we need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased legal costs for property purchasers in cases where the solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal are able to act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a home in the parish of Birling. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Birling, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

We are buying in Dover on a recently-developed ex-industrial site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Dover, soil contamination is inescapable. Data on many contaminants, such as radioactive waste and groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

At what point should we find a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

In the majority of situations, instructing as early as possible is better. The legal work can then commence straight away. Promptly instructing a solicitor can reduce the likelihood of the transaction falling through.
