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.

I am purchasing in Kingsnorth with Prudential Banking - is there anything I need to know?

A.

House buyers should consider that some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for purchasers. We are able to act for all large UK mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

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

A.

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.

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.

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

A.

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.

Q.

What would my searches be?

A.

The cost of searches noticeably varies. Your solicitor will usually advise a pack including a drainage search and a mining search.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties semi-detached building in Kingsnorth?

A.

Typically a conveyancer's title report should cover the Medway council tax band.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £788,000 house, what do we need to organise?

A.

The key to fast conveyancing is to employing a proactive and experienced solicitor. Consider the following:

  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
