Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates for a £689k home?

A.

Lack of clarity over this matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms. Costs included in the terms ought to be reasonable.

Q.

How early should I arrange a conveyancer?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Tenterden, the faster you instruct the better, as there are several tasks which may be carried out immediately. Prompt instruction of a solicitor to act for you on your Tenterden transaction can reduce the likelihood of the other side pulling out.

Q.

What specific property does my Tenterden solicitor order for a Tenterden house?

Normal legal protocol is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search, Environmental and Coal Mining (Con29M) as well as any specific local Tenterden searches, which may include a Commons Search.

Q.

Can Tenterden brownfield site soil still be contaminated?

A.

Tenterden and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as detergents and acidic compounds, contaminants affecting Tenterden property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Tenterden?

A.

Tenterden is located in Ashford Borough Council, Civic Centre, Tannery Lane, Ashford, Kent, TN23 1PL, Call: 01233 331 111

Q.

How is SDLT calculated, and what amount should we budget for a £835000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty depends on the purchase price of the property. On a £835000 property, stamp duty will be £33400 (correct March 2013).

Q.

Should I employ the conveyancing named by my agent?

A.

If you instruct a solicitor through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to encourage a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Is a TT fee a fee or disbursement?

A.

Comparing quotes can be difficult, given the different terminology. This cost, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and will usually be included in your conveyancing quote.
