Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print. This small print is often not read by sellers and buyers in a hurry. Charges needs to be fair and reasonable. Your Sittingbourne conveyancing quote should also state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursments).We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Can you confirm which Sittingbourne lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Which panels are your solicitors on?

English Heritage have assembled information on the condition of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement.

Q.

In Sittingbourne, is soil remediation of contaminated land an option?

A.

Q.

What actions can I take to get out of paying for stamp duty?

Q.

I am planning to buy with Topaz Finance - what do I need to consider?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased legal costs for purchasers if a second lawyer is required by their lender. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act for most mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

How much time may conveyancing to transact a home generally take? We have a buyer ready.

A.

The number of weeks needed to transact a home can vary. This is dependent on a number of considerations. These could include whether either party has a mortgage. Homeward Legal solicitors strive to ensure your move is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.
