Folkestone is a coastal town on the English Channel in Kent. It is situated 20 miles south of Canterbury, 18 miles southeast of Ashford and 60 miles southwest of Margate. The town is on the southern edge of the North Downs in a valley between two cliffs. It is thought that the town has been occupied since the Mesolithic era.

Landmarks in the town include its harbour, that has greatly diminished in use since the opening of the Channel Tunnel. The harbour is now famous for the ‘Harbour Arm’ that has cafes, pubs and live music. The cliffs around the beach are also a notable sight within the town with the Martello Tower standing on them. There are a couple of famous landmarks outside the town: The Battle of Britain Memorial and the Kent Battle of Britain museum. The latter is the oldest Battle of Britain museum in the United Kingdom.

Kent.pngKent, romantically described as 'the garden of England', is a coastal county in the England's south eastern corner. Because it borders Greater London, it is classed as one of the home counties. It contains the Weald and the North Downs. Kent's county town is Maidstone. Other large cities include Gillingham, Chatham, Ashford, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Margate, Dartford and Gravesend. 

Kent has many port towns including Dover, Folkestone and Margate. Adjacent counties include East Sussex, Surrey, Essex (across the River Thames) and, as stated earlier, Greater London. Curiously, Kent used to contain an enclave north of the River Thames until 1965 which equates now to the E16 postcode area and which has now been reclassified as part of the London Borough of Newham. JMW Turner, the great impressionist painter, spent part of his childhood in Margate and regularly returned there in later life. The coastline of East Kent is regarded as the inspiration for many of his works, particularly his fantastic seascapes.

What are the conveyancing costs?

The solicitors' fees for handling your conveyance vary dramatically depending on whether you approach an online conveyancing solicitor, a high street conveyancer or housing solicitors introduced by your estate agent. 

The actual conveyancing costs, outside of the legal work, should be fixed as they are set including:

For buyers: stamp duty, land registration, property searches, ID searches and leasehold charges (if buying a leasehold property).

For sellers: office copies, title plan and management information (if selling a leasehold property).

It is important to make sure when budgeting the costs of moving home that you factor in all of the above conveyancing costs and ensure you get a fixed fee conveyancing quote from your chosen local solicitors or licensed conveyancer.
