How do we find low cost conveyancing?


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many law firms promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the small print that buyers often do not check. Costs found in the terms should be reasonable. A quote should also clearly state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.


The current owner looks to have added unsuitable removal of chimney stacks on the home in Newton Aycliffe which I think may conflict with conservation area rules


Your property solicitor will find out whether your proposed purchase is affected by a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have requisite consent from the County Durham authority.


In regards to the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England, I am wondering if property conveyancing searches might not be exacting enough?


Flood searches conducted by a Newton Aycliffe property lawyer should include the more informative flood search if required.

If you are concerned it may be worth trying to call a neighbour or local resident or nearby County Durham flood damage business - such as: J Howard Decorators, 15 Northside Cl, Middridge, Newton Aycliffe, DL5 7JS Tel: 01642 685496.


When I am buying close to a 1200s rectory in Newton Aycliffe, do I need a chancel search?


Where land in Newton Aycliffe was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards repairs to churches. Parochial Church Councils in Newton Aycliffe must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your conveyancing solicitor can provide more details. Church lands in Newton Aycliffe which may give rise to chancel liability include St Clare.


We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how can we guarantee a fast exchange and completion in Newton Aycliffe?


It is a truism that finding a proactive, diligent solicitor is crucial to a faster move. There are several tasks you as the buyer could do to speed up the legal work, such as, answering any queries raised by the solicitor as soon as possible, requesting regular updates from your solicitor and keep the pressure on and arranging your mortgage offer.


We are intending to buy a period house in the boundary of conservation areas. How do we find more data in regards to the state of upkeep?


Local Newton Aycliffe conservation areas are designated by the local authority (County Durham) who manage things like what can be demolished to the halting of poorly maintained pavements. English Heritage have put together a list on the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the trend.


Bank of Scotland is our mortgage lender, is there anything I need to consider?


When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers in Newton Aycliffe need to be aware that a small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act for the vast majority of lenders in the UK so that the buyer will not have to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.


My partner and I are buying in Newton Aycliffe. Can I find out if the residence is in a designated conservation area?


Conservation areas detail local areas of historic or architectural significance. Your conveyancing solicitor will offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.
