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.

We have a requirement to exchange contracts on the sale of our house rapidly, are you fast Sittingbourne conveyancers ?

Often home moving solicitors are extremely easy going adding further stress to the property conveyancing process.

Our conveyancers approach to conveyancing is different as we have invested in cutting edge automated practice management systems . We always also look after you with clients a qualified conveyancer qualified to communicate with the whole property chain like other sellers agents, to bring about a fast exchange of contracts.

Q.

I am completing next February, how is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty is based on a limited set of factors, primarily the value of the property. For a house or flat worth £1182000, stamp duty is £59100.

Q.

How can we avoid being gazumped?

A.

This happens when the 1st buyer's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property owner, opting instead for a second buyer's offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. You should instruct a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

Is your solicitor team set up to complete fast the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Sittingbourne?

A.

Our residential property lawyers often take instructions from buyers and sellers at auction. We usually advise purchasers to formally instruct a SRA regulated conveyancing lawyer prior to the property auction date so there is time for a detailed investigation of the sellers legal pack.

Subsequently, following the property auction date, the lawyer is focused on briskly finalise the legal work within 28 days as required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

How could conveyancing for a sale be so delayed?

A.

The conveyancing process will sometimes take more time. We aim to minimise their impact, if it is possible to do so, by chasing for prompt responses. Delays include issues elsewhere in a chain.

Q.

I am purchasing a sixties property in a designated conservation area in Sittingbourne. How do I find more information in relation to the current standard of repair?

A.

Local Sittingbourne conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Swale) who regulate things like private spaces to the impediment of ugly shop fronts.
