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.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £630,000 residence, what should we do?

A.

Contacting a proactive solicitor is the key to a faster move. There are a range of things you as the buyer could do to speed up the process, including, calling or emailing the solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays, answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible and ordering a property survey early in the transaction.

Q.

What should we do regarding arsenic soil contamination in Kent?

A.

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.

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.

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.

We are planning to buy in Kent. Should we have 'conveyancing searches' ordered?

A.

Searches are a prescribed pack of enquiries raised by your property solicitor. Purchasers need to be aware that, these searches will only cover the legal condition of the property's title.
