We are looking for a cheap Eaglescliffe solicitor for selling a house. What do we need to consider?


This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Having heard about the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England, I am concerned that flood searches may not be exacting enough?


A Eaglescliffe solicitor will get additional thorough conveyancing searches if the standard searches establishes a any kind of Eaglescliffe flood risk area data

Sometimes buyers contact a close neighbour for additional information.


Is it recommended that we get a chancel search? We are purchasing a maisonette next to a vicarage in Eaglescliffe.


The outcome of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced.

Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.


Should I choose a conveyancing solicitor suggested by the estate agent in Radyr?


Agent recommendations are a common practice route for buyers to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.


Which local authority is responsible for Eaglescliffe?


Eaglescliffe is located in Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, Municipal Buildings, Church Road, Stockton-on-Tees, TS18 1LD Tel: 01642 393939


What kind of local environmental checks in connection with the risk and history of a flood in the County Durham region will my conveyancing solicitor in Eaglescliffe actually carry out on a buy to let home I am intending to purchase?


The lawyer will carry out formal property environmental searches that incorporate Eaglescliffe flood risk information. A substantially more involved flood history/risk search, such as the Homecheck search, could be advocated by a conveyancer in Eaglescliffe, if in the event that the initial searches suggest a flood risk.


Our purchase is completing in October. How is SDLT calculated?


The Stamp Duty owed is based on the purchase price of the house. For a house or flat estimated at £955000, SDLT will be £38200.


Why can purchase conveyancing legal work have so many delays?


Conveyancing could potentially be delayed for a variety of reasons. In some cases, the delays are beyond a lawyer's power. Homeward Legal do our best to diminish the effect of these delays where feasible.
