Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Many firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any additional costs should be fair and reasonable. They be applicable solely where your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your quote should state any disbursements.

Q.

What should we do regarding arsenic soil contamination in Kent?

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Kent, but some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as water contaminants such as industrial chemicals.

Q.

How is Kent contaminated land checked?

A broad range of contaminants caused by factors caused by man and by nature can lessen the desirability Kent property, like infilled land. An environmental search can provide much more clarity. Contamination can be caused by Kent waste sites, including Ham Farm, Ham Road, Kent, ME13 7EU.

Q.

Will a conveyancing solicitor in Kent carry out personal or official searches on my property purchase?

A.

Your property lawyer will advise regarding the best route, depending on factors like local authority turnaround times. For personal searches, the solicitor might look for a local search agent for example Assured Property Searches Ltd, APS House, 113 Kingsway, Petts Wood, Kent, BR5 1PP Tel: 0845 680 1122.

Q.

Should the fixtures and fittings include things such as chairs?

A.

New owners will often be frustrated with the lack of formality around what fixtures and fittings should be included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.

Q.

Are some of the protected Kent conservation areas are in an unacceptable state?

A.

The most recent estimation of the state of repair of conservation areas is logged by English Heritage, and the following data is currently listed at English Heritage - Royal Tunbridge Wells is recorded as at risk with unknown vulnerability and condition improving, Gillingham Green is recorded as poor with high vulnerability and no significant change, Halling is recorded as poor with high vulnerability and no significant change, Star Hill to Sun Pier is recorded as fair with medium vulnerability and deteriorating.

Q.

Do your house conveyancing solicitors a lot of experience at the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Kent?

A.

We are accustomed to working with auction buyers and sellers. Our auction team solicitors and conveyancers have been instructed by numerous vendors at local Kent auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Savvy buyers tend to choose a CQS conveyancing company as fast as they can to allow enough time for a detailed review of the legal documents prior to the auction.

Following the property auction your appointed property lawyer is fully focused on briskly finishing the legal side of things within 4 weeks as usually required .

Q.

I have found a plethora of useful manuals all about by passing the solicitor. Do I need a property lawyer in Kent for my move?

A.

Theoretically speaking there is no argument why you should not do the legal work yourself. That said, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a huge number of assignments such as chasing missing documents or collating and preparing contract and package most of which need a qualified solicitor. Nonetheless firms and their solicitors are required to be in possession of indemnity insurance in order to protect you in the event of any oversights.
