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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
