Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

How soon is it wise to get a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

In simple terms, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Kingsnorth sale or purchase for a sale allows relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

We are buying a 1930s maisonette in one of the Kingsnorth conservation area, where can I find more information in respect of the state of repair?

A.

Conservation areas in Kingsnorth are specified by the local authority (Medway) who preserve everything from building materials to the blockage of vacant buildings. Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created records of the state of repair of conservation areas along with the trend of the area.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

Which lenders in Kingsnorth do you work with?

A.

Homeward Legal have solicitors who have experience working with all the major lenders assisting home purchasers in Kingsnorth. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include New Mortgage Finder, The Barn/Woodreeve Farm, Ruckinge, Ashford, TN26 2EJ, and Charles Mac, Rose Cottage/Bilsington Rd, Ruckinge, Ashford, TN26 2PD.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Kingsnorth?

A.

Kingsnorth is located in Ashford Borough Council, Civic Centre, Tannery Lane, Ashford, Kent, TN23 1PL, phone: 01233 331 111

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get searches for chancel liability? We are purchasing a Kingsnorth home near rectory grounds.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Kingsnorth which was once owned by a 'lay impropriators' can be liable for repairs to local churches. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Kingsnorth must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church lands in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Michael & All Angels.
