Kenley points of interest

A.

Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing?

A.

Many law firms offer cheap conveyancing, however additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions which unwary buyers fail to check. Any fees listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will you need a chancel search if we are buying close by a vicarage in Kenley?

A.

The outcome of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Kenley property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Kenley ecclesiastical properties include All Saints and St John the Baptist.

Q.

Does our Kenley conveyancing solicitor tell me about the cost of the council tax for a Band D property prior to exchanging contracts?

A.

Your conveyancer will speak to the appropriate Tandridge local authority to ascertain the correct council tax rates, which will then be included in the conveyancing report on title. Up-to-date rates for properties in Kenley are tabled online at the Tandridge council website. At the time of writing, 02 January 2013, rates are:

  • Band A - £1,042.00
    >
  • Band B - £1,216.00
  • Band C - £1,390.00
  • Band D - £1,563.00
  • Band E - £1,911.00
  • Band F - £2,258.00
  • Band G - £2,605.00
  • Band H - £3,126.00

Q.

Flood risk searches may be all well and good but considering climate change such as the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future are they sufficient to report sufficient information about the Kenley risk of flooding?

A.

The Kenley property lawyer will suggest that you also get conveyancing searches (Landmark search) if the initial search establishes a significant risk Kenley flooding risk.

You can always contact a next door neighbour to get further assurance.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Kenley?

A.

Kenley is located in Tandridge District Council, Station Road East, Oxted, Surrey, RH8 0BT, contact: 01883 722 000

Q.

My mortgage lender will be Intelligent Finance, what do we need to consider?

A.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. For purchasers, this can result in significantly greater conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, however, can act for the majority of mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

What does the Kenley conveyancing solicitor advise if the flat is in a Tandridge conservation area which has unlawful windows fitted to it?

A.

Local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by a solicitor during the conveyancing process should verify if the property is inside a conservation area proof of planning consent for changes to the property will be required.

In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your Kenley conveyancer will recommend the best alternatives, which include obtaining from the appropriate local authority or getting covered by indemnity insurance.

Q.

Is soil in Kenley contaminated by titanium?

A.

The risks posed by soil contamination to Kenley inhabitants are usually low. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and ammonia, contaminants affecting Kenley property will be factored into an environmental search.
