I am looking for low cost conveyancing. Will we get a quote or and estimate?


The confusion over this point catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees may inflate the final bill. Any charges listed in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable. They only apply in cases where the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


In about five weeks we are going to be finally moving from our semi detached building just outside Benton into a larger property in Ryton . At what point to choose a removal company?


It is prudent to is to avoid arranging a removal van until such time as everyone has settled the final moving date that takes place once final contracts are signed. Often removals firms often charge a change of date cost . Local removals companies include Slipstream, 13 Lambourne Avenue, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE12 8DQ Phone: 0191 266 8352 or Safe & Sound, Unit 2 Balliol Business Pk/Benton Lane, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE12 8EW Tel: 0191 266 5698.


What do fixtures and fittings include?


Generally speaking, there is no clear definition of fixtures and fittings. In order to avoid later issues, a fixtures and fittings form should be completed, saving heartache once the sale is completed.


We are intending to buy in Benton. Are there many designated conservation areas in the area?


Conservation areas qualify areas designated as being of historical merit. A solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works and be able to offer more information.


Can you advise how I circumvent paying stamp duty?


We strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail. There have been certain government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.


Do your panel of solicitors manage the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Benton?


Yes - Homeward Legal often work for bidders at auction. We usually encourage buyers at auction to appoint a conveyancing solicitor well in advance of the day of the auction for a full review. Thereafter, following the auction day arrives your instructed conveyancing lawyer is totally ready for swiftly completing the legal side of things within a month as required by the conditions of sale.


Which local authority is responsible for Benton?
