The nearest hospital is Fawkham Manor.

Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing in Meopham?

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees may inflate your final invoice. A conveyancing quote should state the disbursements to be paid.

Q.

If I am purchasing in Meopham, is it recommended that I get a chancel search?

A.

The result of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Meopham churches where chancel liability may apply include St John The Baptist.

Q.

Can you recommend how to get out of paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

We do not recommend conveyancing clients arrange any form of stamp duty reduction scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

What conservation areas are there in Meopham?

Parts of Meopham considered be of historical or architectural value, like model housing estates, may be defined as conservation areas. The advantages of these restrictions will include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change, but they can add to maintenance costs. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to offer more information.

Q.

I plan to buy a church rectory in Lewisham. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is found. Through some parish councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Nationwide will be our mortgage lender, what will we need to consider?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Recently, a number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for property purchasers in cases where the lawyer cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. We, though, can act on behalf of most CML-approved lenders.

Q.

Which actual conveyancing searches does the Meopham lawyer order when buying a Meopham house?

A.

The conventional conveyancing protocol will be to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search, Environmental and Coal Mining Search (Con29M) as well as any unique particular e.g. a Land Charges Search (K15).
