Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Romney for a £582,000 house?

A.

Many solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Additional fees which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable and only apply in cases where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The quote should state any disbursements to be paid.Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

If I plan to purchase near Romney, in the parish of Yalding, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move might recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners.

Q.

I am buying in Romney with UCB Home Loans, what do I need to know?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of most lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

Solicitors in Romney order standard conveyancing searches when they are instructed by a home purchase client, but which particular ones?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage the mortgage lender expects at least these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environmental, and perhaps specific searches, like a Planning report.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Romney?

A.

Parts of Romney considered be of special architectural or historic interest, like stretches of canals, may be registered as conservation areas. Your property solicitor will be able to advise further and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

How can a conveyancing solicitor in Romney advise me on the potential risk of flooding in the Romney region?

A.

An experienced conveyancing lawyer makes an application for standard formal environmental searches that incorporate Romney flood risk area information. As an additional measure means that the Romney conveyancing solicitor may propose a more involved (e.g. Landmark) involved local flood risk search.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Romney identified when purchasing?

A.

Property may be contaminated by a wide range of natural causes, and an environmental search should reveal whether a plot of land is impacted by contaminants in the region such as petroleum and fuel sites.

Q.

What amount of time may the legal work to transfer a house take, in your experience? We need to move quickly.

A.

The time needed to transact residential property varies, with reference to a broad set of issues affecting the property. Our lawyers ensure each client is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.
