How do we get a discount conveyancing estimate?


Numerous conveyancers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement. Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on the conveyancing quote Extra costs found in the terms ought to be clearly defined. They be applied only where the lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Do you advise that I get searches for chancel liability if I am buying in Newburn?


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Newburn which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to nearby church land. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your solicitor can provide more details. Churches in Newburn include St Michael & All Angels.


As a result of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England we are anxious that environmental searches won't be sufficient?


Your Newburn lawyer should always get additional flood risk searches if the enviro search spots a Newburn area flood risk

You could also try to converse with a future neighbour for extra local information.


What amount of time should conveyancing to purchase a house take, on average? The house being transacted is also in the area.


The number of weeks needed to transact a residence varies. This is affected by many concerns which can include whether there is a mortgage. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, we however work towards four to six weeks, wherever possible.


What is the authority that looks after for logging the condition of neglect the conservation areas in Newburn and Newburn?


Local conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Newcastle upon Tyne) who maintain everything from including things like street guard rails, addition of hard standings to front and public spaces.

English Heritage maintain information on the condition of conservation areas in addition to the trend of the area.


Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Newburn?


Regardless of the Newburn parish you are purchasing in, the conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


I am going to buy with Direct Line Mortgages - is there anything I need to be aware of?


Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased conveyancing costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act on behalf of the majority of lenders, ensuring that an additional lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.


Do we need to be worried about gazumping?


Gazumping describes circumstances where a property seller agrees to one buyer's offer and then dismisses it in favour of a higher offer. The will be a risk of getting gazumped in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. Instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.
