Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What do we need to consider?

A.

Several solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Extra fees included in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable and clear. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on the quote

Q.

Which actual property will my lawyer in Sandgate carry out when carrying out the conveyancing for a Sandgate property?

A.

The routine conveyancing procedure will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search, Environment Search and Coal Mining, and possibly less common searches for example Planning and local information.

Q.

We have found abundant useful handbooks giving details on DIY conveyancing. Do I have to use solicitor in Sandgate ?

A.

On paper there are no arguments why you shouldn't embark on the bulk of the conveyancing yourself. In reality however, a property solicitor carries out a huge number of actions e.g. interpreting protocol forms or interpreting the lease which are better done by someone with training.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Canterbury St Mary Bredin?

A.

Regardless of the Sandgate parish in which you are buying, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Will you need a chancel liability search when I am buying near a 12th Century rectory manor in Sandgate?

A.

In Sandgate, some owners can be required to cover the cost of repairs to nearby church land. Parochial Church Councils in Sandgate must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Sandgate church lands where chancel liability may apply include St Paul.

Q.

Should we get a property survey for our home purchase?

A.

We advise that Sandgate property purchasers book a home surveyor to undertake a survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of issues which can negatively affect a property. These include cracks in walls.

Q.

What can a Sandgate conveyancing solicitor do if the home we are buying is in a conservation area and has an un-consented doors installed?

A.

Your instructed solicitor will make enquiries to confirm whether your new home is within a conservation area and whether any modifications have the requisite consent.

Q.

As a consequence of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future we are questioning if conveyancing searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by your property solicitor in Sandgate will also include a more thorough flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still nervous why not make enquiries with a neighbour of the property.
