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.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search? We are buying a maisonette near a parsonage in Tenterden.

A.

Property owners in a neighbourhood near churches are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in Tenterden, including maps of Tenterden's parish boundaries. Tenterden ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Michael & All Angels and St Mildred.

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.

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.

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.

Do your property lawyers a lot of experience at the conveyancing for property auction properties in Tenterden?

A.

Our firm frequently take instructions from buyers and sellers at auction. We strongly suggest auction buyers to choose their lawyer well in advance of the date of the auction to allow adequate time for a full review of the legal papers. Post property auction date, the lawyer will be fully prepared to get through the conveyancing process within the usual 28 days, a normal requirement of auction conditions.

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.

How can I find out whether the Tenterden conservation area is not being properly maintained?

A.

Conservation areas are nominated by Ashford who manage the state of the area including things like advertising hoardings, the painting of houses and what can be developed. Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced a list about the condition of conservation areas as well as the exposure to getting worse.
