How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £661k house?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs can increase the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


What does the Strood conveyancing lawyer advise if the house I hope to purchase is in a conservation area in Medway and has unlawful artificial stone cladding fitted?


Medway council searches conducted by your Strood property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing will ascertain the existence of suitable consent for modifications to the property.

In the absence of any consents, your solicitor will inform you of all options, which include requesting retrospective consent from the planning authority or getting covered by indemnity insurance.

The Homeward Legal partnership have solicitors who have experience working with all the major lenders assisting Strood buyers. Lenders and mortgage

specialists in Strood include Davidson Green Partnership, Waterland/Dillywood La, Higham, Rochester, ME3 7NT.


What sort of investigation in respect to the risk of local flooding to properties in Kent will the conveyancing solicitor in Strood check out?


A necessary part of the legal due diligence process involved in buying a home involves your conveyancing lawyer making an application for conveyancing searches that set out information with regard to Strood area flood risk.


I am purchasing in Strood, is it that important that conveyancing searches are done?


These searches are enquiries requested by the solicitor, which may include a drainage search. Searches are unrelated to a building survey and will not identify structural issues.


Will I need a chancel search? We are purchasing a Strood maisonette next to a rectory manor.


Property owners in an area near older church buildings are expected to fund repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Church lands in the area include St Francis of Assisi and St Nicholas.


To complete on our purchase ASAP, how do we get fast legal work?


Finding a experienced conveyancing solicitor is key fast Strood conveyancing. That said, there are several things you as the buyer can do to get moving sooner, including, asking for property searches to be ordered immediately, promptly completing and return any forms and clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements.


Is homewardlegal.co.uk set up to move quickly on the conveyancing of auction properties in Strood?


The legal team work closely with auctioneers and often act for bidders at auction. Homeward Legal always advocate purchasers to formally appoint an affordable conveyancing firm in advance of the actual auction to allow for a full investigation of the sellers pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction, a property conveyancing lawyer needs to be prepared for complete the purchase inside the 28 day time frame as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.
