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.

When is it appropriate to get a conveyancer?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the earlier, the better. The legal work can then begin immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Whitstable sale or purchase can limit the risk of your transaction aborting.

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.

Might my legal fees cover any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

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

Q.

Do we need to make use of the lawyer suggested by our estate agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often recommend a solicitors firm. These referrals need to be considered carefully, as some agents choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We plan to complete on around 1st January, how is stamp duty calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty in Whitstable will rely on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £21440 on a £536000 house (correct March 2013).

Q.

In a few months we are likely to move out of our detached house in Whitstable to a bigger flat in Westgate on Sea what is the optimum stage to instruct a removal company?

A.

Homeward Legals advice is for buyers to hold off booking a removal company until after everyone has formalised the final home moving date that normally happens once exchange of contracts. If you are looking for a local company try Soho Removals, 24/137/Oxford Street, Whitstable, CT5 1DD on 020 8746 4343 or Dempsey W J, Diamond Rd, Whitstable, CT5 1LN Phone: 01227 261758.

Q.

I am planning on buying a renovated flat in a Whitstable conservation area. Where does one get more information in regards to the standard of repair?

A.

Local conservation areas are set up by Canterbury who govern everything from what can be developed to the thwarting of plastic box signs. Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas along with the risk of standards slipping.
