Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £384,000 house?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs are often hiding in the small print. Charges should be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

We are buying on a West Malling brownfield land. Is the topsoil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like tin (Sn)?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contaminants like phenols and radioactive waste.

Q.

Do we need to select the conveyancing who works with by my agent?

A.

An agent may endorse a solicitors firm. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

Do you advise looking into how to hold off paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually due for property sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty reduction. Such schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

How long can we allow for the legal work to sell property require in West Malling?

A.

For most property, the length of time needed to buy or sell a residence is not wholly predictable, affected by a number of factors. These may include whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Our lawyers work hard to ensure your transaction receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

Will the West Malling property solicitor get official or personal searches on my home purchase?

A.

The property lawyer will brief you regarding the most appropriate course of action, depending on things like search price. If personal searches are used, your solicitor might try to find a search agent e.g Conveyancing Liability Solutions Ltd t/a CLS, Suite 5, 40 Churchill Square, Kings Hill, West Malling, ME19 4YU Tel: 01732 897530 Fax: 01732 897531

Q.

I have read about the fact that 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding I am concerned that environmental searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

The property lawyer in West Malling should always apply for specialist environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the first searches spots a West Malling flood risk.

Why not also speak to a neighbour of the property to gain additional confidence.

Q.

What actual property should a conveyancing solicitor in West Malling conduct when acting on a West Malling flat?

A.

The conventional conveyancing protocol will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental and Coal Mining Search as well as any less common searches for example Commons Registration Search.
