Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing?

A.

This matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Additional charges should be fair and clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

We are buying on a Longfield ex-industrial use land. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Longfield and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. The local authority for Longfield will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Which parts of Longfield are protected by a conservation area?

A.

There are a number of areas of conservation located near Longfield. You may wish to contact the local council for more information, but your solicitor will address this during the house-buying process.

Q.

Are your property lawyers able to move quickly on the conveyancing for property auction properties in Longfield?

Yes - The legal team work closely with auctioneers and frequently handle the legal work for sellers at auction. It is a sensible decision for auction buyers to appoint the conveyancing company as ahead of time as they can so there is time for a full review of the auction legal pack well in advance of the day of bidding.

Thereafter, following the actual auction your dedicated conveyancing solicitor will be geared up to concluding the conveyancing in the reduced time frame as required .

How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates worked out and what should we budget for a £490000 Longfield home?

Q.

If I am purchasing near Longfield, in the parish of Kingsdown, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is found. Although some church councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties detached Band E property in Longfield?
