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.

What is the council tax on a Thirties detached Band C property in Tenterden?

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.

Q.

Should I employ the conveyancing named by my agent?

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.

What can a Tenterden property lawyer recommend if the maisonette is in a conservation area in Ashford planning authority that may have ugly roof aerials fitted?

A.

Ashford local authority searches conducted by your solicitor will see whether the property is within a designated conservation area and any evidence of local authority approval for modifications will be required.

Q.

Having read about the terrible flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am asking whether property conveyancing searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

An experienced lawyer in Tenterden will advise you to get additional property environmental searches if the initial search determines a Tenterden flood risk area data

It could be worth trying to get in touch with a neighbour for some more insight.

Q.

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

A.

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.

What amount of time can be accounted for conveyancing to buy a property usually take, in your experience?

A.

In general, the length of time taken to transfer a residence can vary. This is influenced by a range of considerations. These may include if a third party is slow to respond. Homeward Legal solicitors work hard to ensure every purchase is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.
