I need a cheap solicitor quote to own a home. Can you assist?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs may inflate your solicitor's invoice. Extra fees found in the terms needs to be clearly defined.


Do many conservation areas in Ouston have the potential to affect us?


Conservation areas distinguish streets and neighbourhoods recognised as being of special architectural or historic interest. Your lawyer will offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.


Does the property solicitor in Ouston report back to me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band H building before exchanging contracts?


The conveyancer will liaise with the council to find out the appropriate council tax band and rates, which will be included in the report on title. Correct rates for Ouston are detailed on the Gateshead council site. On (05 February 2013) rates are:

  • Band A - £1,067.00
  • Band B - £1,245.00
  • Band C - £1,422.00
  • Band D - £1,600.00
  • Band E - £1,956.00
  • Band F - £2,311.00
  • Band G - £2,667.00
  • Band H - £3,200.00


For our mortgage lender, we have chosen Bank of Scotland, what do we need to know?


A small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in greater legal costs for property purchasers in cases where the solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. We will act for many mortgage lenders.


I am buying a an extended house in a conservation area in Ouston. How do we locate more information relating to the standard of upkeep?


English Heritage keep a detailed list on the condition of conservation areas along with the trend of the area. Conservation areas in Ouston are designated by Gateshead who maintain conservation area concerns from what can be demolished to new developments.


What can I do to bypass paying SDLT?


Stamp duty is due for purchases over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are costly and unreliable.


I have to exchange on the sale of a maisonette within 6 weeks, are you especially fast Ouston solicitors ?


We believe that our active solicitors assume a take charge modus operandi to finishing the conveyancing for home movers

Our method is to use state of the art practice management systems . Importantly , we give you a conveyancers prepared to communicate up the home buyer and seller chain .


Is a mortgage offer review a fee or disbursement?


A quote will clearly list all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your quote.
