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.

As a result of the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are apprehensive that flood risk searches might not be exacting enough?

A.

Flood searches conducted by the Margate property lawyer will also include the far more thorough Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are anxious it may be worth trying to contact a local resident.

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.

Will the home's fixtures and fittings include central heating systems?

A.

In the main, fixtures are fixed items, such as the boiler to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are easier to detach or remove. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.

Q.

Should I employ the property solicitor often used by the estate agent?

A.

It is commonplace for agents to recommend one or more conveyancing firms. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

Please recommend how to avoid paying stamp duty in Margate?

A.

We do not recommend conveyancing clients expose their finances to any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are expensive and often likely to fail.

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem for any residential properties in Margate?

A.

Margate property will be contaminated by many natural and human-influenced issues, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a house may be affected by Margate contaminants such as air pollution or sand or gravel pits.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £413,000 property, what do we need to do?

A.

As is often argued, contacting a proactive conveyancer is the key to a fast transaction. When finding a suitable a conveyancer, : What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
