Whitstable's closest airport is Manston, Kent International Airport (14 miles). London Airport is 20 miles, Manston Airport is 15 miles and Rochester Airport is 23 miles away and the closest station to Whitstable is Whitstable.

Whitstable & Tankerton is the neighbouring hospital.

Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in Whitstable to own property?

A.

Numerous firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. The quote should also state any disbursements. Additional fees ought to be reasonable and clear and come into force only if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What length of time does the conveyancing process need? If it matters, we are purchasing a property in Whitstable.

A.

Generally speaking, the amount of time required to buy or sell property will vary, according to a number of considerations including if either party has a mortgage. With our Whitstable property specialists, every purchase is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Cranbrook, near Whitstable?

A.

Whichever Whitstable parish you are buying in, a conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Whitstable's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Flood risk searches are based on archived records and when you consider current events for example the fact that 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding are they still appropriate to ascertain sufficient information about the Whitstable flood risk area?

A.

Environmental searches handled by the Whitstable property lawyer will include a far more thorough search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are concerned why not call a neighbour of the property.

Q.

Might my legal fees cover any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden extra charges to transfer a property.

Q.

The residence being bought is on a brownfield land. What should we do regarding nickel soil contamination?

A.

Whitstable industrial or agricultural can cause top-soil contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contaminants like phenols and ammonia, contaminants affecting Whitstable property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

What makes the conveyancing process in Whitstable to be so delayed?

A.

The conveyancing process may take more time. Homeward Legal aim to diminish their impact by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a mid-terrace Band C home in Whitstable?

A.

You will be informed about the property's band as part of the title report. Council tax charges for Whitstable are detailed on the Canterbury council website. At the time of writing on 11 November 2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £963.00
