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.

I really need to exchange contracts on the conveyancing process on a share of freehold flat within 5 weeks - are Homeward Legal fast Kent conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Our solicitors by default adopt a thoroughly proactive style when completing the legal process to meet the sellers requirements.

We always allocate you to home moving lawyers which endeavour to communicate by phone and email up and down the buyer and seller property chain . Furthermore our network of solicitors are chosen because they use expensive HMRC and Land Registry integrated and IT systems to complete on your house move to your time frame.

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.

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.

Which actual search enquiries should a Kent conveyancing solicitor carry out when acting on a Kent building?

A.

The common conveyancing procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environment Search and Coal Mining Search, and possibly specific searches e.g. a Commons Registration Search.

Q.

We are planning to buy with Precise Mortgages, is there anything we need to know?

A.

Purchasers need to be aware that, recently, a number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for buyers. We, however, are able to act for most CML-approved lenders.

Q.

At what point should you instruct a solicitor?

A.

If you use a conveyancing firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier, the better. Promptly instructing a solicitor could mitigate the chance of the other side pulling out.

Q.

If we are intending to purchase near Kent, in the parish of Otford, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. Chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a building where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.
