Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees may increase the final bill. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable. A conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a home in Kingston. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

The solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish where the residence being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on current owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Which factors help with ensuring fast conveyancing?

A.

As is widely reported, a fast conveyancing transaction is essential to is to employing a proactive conveyancer. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Will they order searches immediately?

Q.

How is Queenborough contaminated land checked when buying a property?

Several contaminants may lessen the desirability property in Queenborough, and factors such as shallow mining or proximity to landfill sites will be investigated during the conveyancing process. Redham Meade, Mead Wall, Kent, ME3 7TG may be one source of local contamination.

Q.

Having heard about the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 I am asking whether flood searches won't be exacting enough?

A.

Flood searches applied for by a Queenborough property lawyer will include a far more detailed search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still apprehensive you could try to get in touch with a neighbour.

Q.

Is your solicitor team experienced enough to complete within 28 days of exchange on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Queenborough?

A.

We put together legal documentation for vendors and commonly do the legal work for buyers at auction. It is prudent auction buyers to decide on a an auction experienced conveyancing lawyer as quickly as possible to allow for a full review of the documents prior to the property auction date.

Subsequently, following the actual auction a lawyer needs to be fully prepared to complete the conveyancing inside 28 days after exchange as required by the auction conditions.

Q.

What type of local authority searches regarding the risk of flooding to properties in Kent will the lawyer in Queenborough actually do?

A.

A key part of the legal procedure involves the solicitor applying for conveyancing searches (environmental) that provide you with certain details about the potential Queenborough flood risk area.

Q.

Is a survey a good idea when purchasing property in Queenborough?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that you book a home buyer survey. A wide range of issues can affect a property, such as flat roof leaks and subsidence. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
