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.

We want to exchange on the conveyancing on our jointly owned leasehold apartment in a very limited time, are you especially fast Gillingham solicitors ?

A.

Our property lawyers have a highly efficient approach to completing the conveyance to meet the sellers requirements. Homeward Legals chosen solicitors are focused on speed and will always attempt to communicate up the buyer and seller chain and that use leading edge practice management software and IT systems to complete your house move swiftly.

Q.

Does our Gillingham solicitor report back to me about the cost of the council tax on a Band B building prior to exchanging contracts?

A.

The solicitor will speak to the council to reveal the latest council tax rates, which should be added to the report on title.

The correct rates for properties in Gillingham are tabled online at the North Dorset local authority site. At the time of writing on 14 March 2013 band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,059.00
    >
  • Band B - £1,235.00
  • Band C - £1,411.00
  • Band D - £1,588.00
  • Band E - £1,941.00
  • Band F - £2,294.00
  • Band G - £2,646.00
  • Band H - £3,176.00

Q.

May charges for the conveyancing cover any extra costs?

A.

We do not charge any extra, hidden costs for sale or purchase conveyancing.

Q.

Are your house conveyancing solicitors experienced enough to act quickly on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Gillingham?

A.

Yes - In fact we work closely with auctioneers and often get instructed by sellers at auction. Homeward Legals panel of conveyancing lawyers have acted for countless vendors at local Gillingham property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Canny buyers at auction tend to choose the lawyer as soon as possible for a detailed report of the auction legal papers well in advance of the date of the auction. Immediately following the date of the auction your experienced lawyer is completely able to concentrate on finishing the legal work inside 4 weeks as required .

Q.

What can a Gillingham property solicitor do if the maisonette we am buying is within a local authority conservation area and has unlawful removal of chimney stacks added?

A.

Your instructed conveyancing solicitor is required to confirm whether the property is within a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have requisite permissions from the North Dorset planning authority.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began we are questioning whether environmental searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches conducted by your Gillingham conveyancing solicitor should include a far more thorough flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you are still anxious why not get in touch with a neighbour.

Q.

I plan to buy a property in the parish of Patrixbourne with Bridge. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

A conveyancer is likely to recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Gillingham, chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
