We need to find a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a share of freehold house. Will we get a quote or and estimate?


Many online and high street firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges may be added into small print. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on a conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


Does Homeward Legal conduct the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Kingsnorth?


Yes - We are very capable working with bidders at auction. Regularly specialist lots for example landlocked or without legal access are sold at property auctions which necessitate supplementary exploration. We therefore strongly advise that buyers appoint the lawyer in advance of the auction day for a thorough investigation of the sellers documents.

Immediately following the date of the auction your appointed lawyer is fully ready for concluding the purchase in as short a time frame as typically required .


Might the charges for our conveyancing conceal any hidden costs?


Regrettably, the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. Our solicitors will not charge any additional charges. Be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be bound to.


In what ways can a Kingsnorth property solicitor report back on the potential risk of a flood to properties in Kingsnorth?

An essential part of the legal process of buying a property involves your conveyancing lawyer making an application for property environmental searches that set out information with respect to risk of flooding in Kingsnorth. Additionally the solicitor in Kingsnorth might advise a more involved flood risk search.


As a consequence of the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 10-12 years we are concerned that flood searches aren't exacting enough?


Flood risk searches carried out by your Kingsnorth property solicitor should include the far more specialist search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still apprehensive try to speak to a local resident.


Do we need a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Buckland near Dover, near Kingsnorth?


Whether you are buying a house in Kingsnorth or elsewhere in the county, the Kingsnorth conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Although some parish councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


Are any Kingsnorth conservation areas likely to impact the residence we are buying?


Areas deemed to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', such as fishing villages, will be designated as areas of conservation. These restrictions can make repairs more costly or time-consuming, but the benefits include more aesthetically pleasant surroundings. Your property solicitor will be able to offer more information.


Would getting a house survey be necessary if we are buying a house or flat, regardless of its age?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that the majority of purchasers in Kingsnorth arrange a RICS surveyor to perform a survey. There are many concerns that have a negative impact on a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover, such as blocked drains or cracks in walls.
