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.

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.

A.

Commonly Sandwich lawyers are far too slow moving which adds huge concern to the house selling process.

We always give vendors a CQS lawyer prepared to communicate by phone and email with all parties in the home buyer and seller chain for example lenders, to get a fast exchange of contracts.

Q.

Might my conveyancing costs incorporate any additional fees?

A.

No. Our solicitors do not hide any additional fees. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

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.

Q.

If you are buying a flat conversion on the same road as an ecclesiastical parish in Sandwich, is it advisable that I get a chancel search?

A.

Some owners in Sandwich can be required to fund upkeep of a local church. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Ecclesiastical properties in this area include St Clement and The Carpenter's Arms.

Q.

What causes Sandwich property legal work to take weeks more than planned?

A.

Sandwich conveyancing will occasionally take more time than budgeted, we, however, do our best to reduce the cost of these delays wherever feasible by using fast search providers. Common delays may include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

At what point should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

Simply, the faster you instruct the better, as there are a number of tasks which may be performed immediately. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm for a purchase allows you will the details of your Sandwich solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.
