Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £92k property?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees may pad your solicitor's invoice. Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

We are buying a 1930s maisonette in the middle of a conservation area in Sandwich, how do I lay my hands on more data relating to the state of upkeep of the Sandwich conservation area?

A.

Local Sandwich conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Dover) who maintain things like paths and footpaths to the policing of poorly maintained public spaces. English Heritage have created information of the state of repair of conservation areas along with the exposure to a decline in standards.

Q.

If we are buying near Sandwich, in the parish of Hernhill, do we need a chancel search?

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the residence being bought is located. In Sandwich's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a residence where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

How much time may be planned for the conveyancing process often require in Sandwich?

A.

The amount of time required to buy or sell property does vary. This is influenced by a broad set of aspects. These may include if the lender requires specific searches. Our solicitors strive to ensure the matter receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Is a mining search passed on at cost?

A.

A quote will clearly list all disbursements and fees. This charge, for example, is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Sandwich?

A.

Sandwich is located in Dover District Council, White Cliffs Business Park, Dover, Kent, CT16 3PJ, contact: 01304 821 199

Q.

Yorkshire Bank will be our mortgage lender, is there anything we need to check?

A.

House buyers should know that, over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For property buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. We are able to act for all major UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

What can a Sandwich conveyancing solicitor do if the flat we hope to purchase is situated in a conservation area and has unapproved windows fitted?

A.

Your solicitor should confirm if the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the necessary consents from the Dover authority. In the absence of any consents the solicitor will recommend the alternatives which include obtaining from Dover local authority or an indemnity policy.
