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'.

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

Yes - In fact we work closely with auctioneers and often get instructed by sellers at auction.

Our property lawyers have a highly efficient approach to completing the conveyance to meet the sellers requirements.

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.

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.

Should we get a homebuyer report?

A.

We suggest that all buyers arrange a property surveyor when you intend to buy in Gillingham. A wide range of concerns can negatively affect a property, for example subsidence. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
