Q.

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

Q.

What type of local authority searches in respect to the potential risk of a flood to properties in Kent will the conveyancing solicitor in Margate actually do for an investment property I am hoping to buy?

A.

An experienced conveyancing lawyer applies for conveyancing searches that should include Margate historical flood risk data.

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.

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 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.

Q.

How many lenders in Margate do you work with?

A.

We work beside many lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Margate, including Cheque Centre, 95 High St, Margate, CT9 1JT, IFA, Po Box 555, Margate, CT9 9WF, and DSG Home Finance Ltd, 152 Northdown Rd, Cliftonville, Margate, CT9 2QN.

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.
