Q.

Local points of interest in Gillingham

A.

Royal Engineers Museum Aviation Museum and World Naval Base Aviation Museum are close to Gillingham.

The most convenient hospital to Gillingham is Medway Gillingham.

Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra charges may increase the final bill. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Gillingham?

A.

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

Q.

Do I need to opt for a law firm referred by our estate agent?

A.

Many agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

In about four weeks we are anticipating to be moving from our semi detached property near Gillingham into a property in Folkestone what is the optimum stage to appoint a house removal firm?

Homeward Legals advice is for buyers to put off instructing the removals until the point where you have set a move date that generally occurs after exchange of contracts.

For a local firm Man Van & Sam, 39 Springfield Rd, Gillingham, ME7 1YJ on 01634 280085 or Extra Van, 37 Seaview Road, Gillingham, ME7 4NL Phone: 01634 570494.

Q.

What search enquiries will the Gillingham property lawyer order when acting on a Gillingham house?

A.

The conventional procedure will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environment Search, Tin Mining Search and China Search, and specific local Gillingham searches, which may include a Planning Search.

Q.

We are going to buy a period maisonette in a designated Gillingham conservation area. How do we uncover more data about the state of upkeep?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together a list of the state of conservation areas. Local conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (North Dorset) who administer conservation area concerns from whether trees can be cut down to the deterrence of neglected buildings.

Q.

We have a house to purchase. How do we guarantee fast conveyancing?

A.

The key to buying faster is to use a proactive conveyancer. Additionally, there are a number of things you, as the buyer, can do to speed up the process, including, asking for property searches to be ordered immediately, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

Would you recommend that I get searches for chancel liability when my partner and I are buying in Gillingham near a 12th Century 'parson's close'?

A.

In Gillingham, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise repairs to an old church building. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Gillingham properties is likely to exist. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Ecclesiastical properties in Gillingham include St. Mary the Virgin, St Mary Magdalene, St Mark and St Luke The Evangelist.
