Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are looking for affordable conveyancing in Rochester.

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees will be included in small print which buyers may have not read carefully Additional costs listed in the small print needs to be reasonable and clear.

Q.

What particular property searches will the lawyer in Rochester conduct when carrying out the conveyancing for a Rochester building?

A.

The standard conveyancing procedure will be to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environmental and Coal Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches for instance Planning Search.

Q.

What factors can impact land in Rochester, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

Rochester property may have been contaminated by numerous naturally-occurring factors, such as overhead transmission lines. An environmental search will give more information. Factory Farm, Wouldham Road, Kent, ME1 3TL may be one Rochester source of contamination.

Q.

As a result of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began we are anxious that flood risk searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

Flood risk searches carried out by the conveyancing solicitor in Rochester will also include the more specialist search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain worried you can always consult one of your future neighbours or local Kent flood repair builder - like Rainbow International, Unit 6 Rochester Trade Park/Rochester Airport Ind Est/Maidst, Rochester, ME1 3QY Tel: 01634 843777.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Sevington?

A.

A property lawyer could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. In older areas of Rochester, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Sevington, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What is the optimum stage to a mover book the home removal firm?

A.

The most sensible course of action is for buyers to delay agreeing removals until the point where both sides have scheduled a date that occurs once exchange of contracts. Try Wilds Removals Strood Ltd, Station Approach/Canal Road, Strood, Rochester, ME2 4DR Call: 01634 226573.

Q.

How soon do you need to speak to a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better, as there are various tasks which may begin immediately. Promptly instructing a conveyancing firm can reduce any chance of your transaction falling through.

Q.

We have taken out a conveyancing quote from you. Could I have to pay any hidden charges when the transaction completes?

A.
