Commuting to the area? ;

Rochester, Maidstone Rd Airport is 16 miles from Kent. London Airport is 23 miles, Manston Airport is 23 miles, Lydd Airport is 22 miles and Rochester Airport is 16 miles away and the nearest train station to Kent is Faversham.

Q.

Things to do in Kent

A.

Charing Kent Windmill, Belmont Historic Houses Association and Maison Dieu English Heritage are in Kent.

The closest hospital for Kent is Faversham Cottage.

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.

How can my Kent property lawyer report on the risk and history of floods in Kent on a Regency building we are intending to purchase?

A.

A residential property solicitor will carry out standard protocol conveyancing and environmental searches that will include Kent flood risk area data information. Additionally a conveyancer in Kent might possibly advocate a more detailed local Kent area flood search.

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.

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.

In 2 months we are anticipating to be finally moving out of our semi detached home in Kent into a home in Isle Of Wight , when to instruct a home removal company?

A.

Your solicitor would tend to advocate that buyers put off booking a removals company until after formal exchange of contracts because it is likely that an agreed date wont have been accepted by both parties. Get more information from Cook & Co Removals, The Coppice/Stockers Head/Faversham Rd, Charing, Ashford, TN27 0NN Telephone: 07803 070853.

Q.

Would you advise taking action to avoid paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation should be treated with extreme caution, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

What causes the sale conveyancing process appear to be so drawn out?

A.

The conveyancing process can be held up by myriad unpredictable issues. Homeward Legal work hard to minimise their burden by pushing all parties involved. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

The current owner has unfortunately added dormer windows to the maisonette which we think may contravene the Gillingham Green conservation area guidelines.

A.

Your property solicitor will check whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have requisite consent from the local authority.
