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 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.

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.

Do many designated conservation areas in Whitstable have the potential to affect us?

A.

These distinguish areas of historic or architectural significance. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have, regarding specific conservation areas in Whitstable.

Q.

What property conveyancing searches will my Whitstable lawyer get on a Whitstable house?

A.

The regular procedure is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Coal Mining (Con29M) and occasionally specific local Whitstable searches, which may include a Flood Risk search.

Q.

How can the lawyer in Whitstable report back on the potential risk of a flood in Whitstable on a Regency property I am hoping to buy?

A.

The property conveyancing lawyer applies for standard formal property environmental searches that should include Whitstable flood risk area data information.

Q.

Is a building survey a good idea when purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

It is strongly suggested that all buyers instruct a house surveyor to carry out a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many problems that can affect a property. These can include failed double glazing and wet rot. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

Godiva Mortgages will be our mortgage lender - what will we need to know?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders.
