A.

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

What should we do regarding molybdenum soil contamination in Gillingham?

A.

Gillingham and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Gillingham, including local authorities.

Q.

Is tenancy agreement vetting a fee or disbursement?

A.

A conveyancing quote should clearly state all fees and disbursements. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

Handling the legal work by bypassing a Gillingham conveyancing solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a home. Would it really be reckless ?

A.

Legally speaking there is no reason at all why you shouldn't look after the legal work yourself.

In reality however, a lawyer carries out a long list of functions such as chasing replies to requisitions or verifying identities of transacting parties many of which need training.

Furthermore lawyers always be covered by the appropriate indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you in the event of any errors.

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 am interested in purchasing a building in Gillingham. How do I check if the building is in a conservation area?

A.

Parts of Gillingham considered be of architectural or historic interest, like 18th century suburbs, may be recognised as areas of conservation. Your solicitor will be able to provide more details, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Gillingham.

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.

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.
