Q.

We need a cheap Margate solicitor to purchase a new build house. What are the risks?

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions that unknowing buyers have not reviewed The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Can you give the reasons why conveyancing for a purchase takes such a long time?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Margate property will sometimes be lengthy. We appreciate how disruptive they may be and do our best to diminish the impact of these delays if it can be achieved by chasing for prompt responses.

Q.

I am buying a 1940s house in a designated conservation areas, how do I find details concerning the state of upkeep of the Margate conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas are created by Thanet who govern things like trees to the thwarting of excessive road signs.

English Heritage have created a list in relation to the condition of conservation areas along with the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

If we plan to purchase in the parish of Fordwich, should we get a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to impose chancel repairs

on the current owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be unaffected.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Margate?

A.

Margate is located in Thanet District Council, PO Box 9, Cecil Street, Margate, Kent, CT9 1XZ, contact: 01843 577 000

Q.

I have found plenty of books giving details on how to do DIY conveyancing for example House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property by Joseph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. Do I want to use a property solicitor in Margate ?

A.

Conceivably there is absolutely no argument why you cannot decide to carry out the majority of the your own conveyancing unaided.

In reality however, a Margate property solicitor carries out a long list of activities ranging from stock transfer forms and notifying the Land Registry of new charges most of which really need the relevant training.

Q.

When is it wise to find a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Margate, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks that can be carried out very early in the process. Some authors suggest holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

I am intending to be finally moving from our semi detached property just outside Margate into a new flat in Maidstone at what point to select a removal company?

A.

Your solicitor would will suggest that house movers delay arranging removals until such time as the contracts have exchanged because a date will not have been set. Local removals firms include AAA Removals, 28 Vicarage Crescent, Margate, CT9 1LH Tel: 01843 293674 or Pettman F L, 48 52 Athelstan Rd, Margate, CT9 2BH Call: 01843 220234.
