Lydd Airport is 13 miles from Tenterden. Rochester Airport is 21 mile away and the nearest train station to Tenterden is Appledore.

West View Tenterden is the closest hospital for Tenterden.

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.

Do I need to get a home buyers survey?

A.

It is recommended that Tenterden buyers order a survey. It is a fact that there are many problems that have a negative impact on a property. These include cavity wall tie failure. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a medieval barn conversion in Aldington. Is a chancel search required?

A.

A property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be taken out, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. In Tenterden's much older areas, chancel repair

dues can be collected on new owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Which factors will affect land in Tenterden. Are these properly investigated?

A.

Tenterden property is contaminated by a range of human activities, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a particular property may be impacted by contaminants such as a proximate telecommunications base station.

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.

In what ways can a Tenterden conveyancer report on the potential risk of possible flooding at Tenterden?

A.

An integral component in the legal due diligence process of buying a property involves a conveyancing solicitor carrying out conveyancing searches that set out details on the Tenterden flood risk. A significantly more specific dedicated flood risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) will often be advocated by your conveyancing solicitor in Tenterden, if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches identify a flood risk.

Q.

My partner and I are intending to buy in Tenterden, and need to know if there are any conservation areas.

A.

With 9300 conservation areas in England, the areas around Tenterden will include a range of areas of historical merit designated as protected. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.
