Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We are trying to find discount conveyancing in Alnwick.

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs may pad the final bill. Applicable disbursements should be included on a quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Is it hazardous to circumvent paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty is usually due for purchases sold for more than £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered, as such schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail.

Q.

When in the process do I need to speak to a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, as soon as possible, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Alnwick sale or purchase for a sale enables paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

Do your house conveyancing solicitors carry out the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Alnwick?

A.

Our firm is able to act for buyers at auction. Our niche auction team of solicitors have in the past been instructed by many buyers at regional residential property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Prepared buyers at auction always decide on a residential property lawyer as ahead of time as possible to allow for a title report of the auction legal pack well before the property auction.

Subsequently, following the property auction your dedicated conveyancing solicitor is focused on finishing the transaction within the limited time frame as usually required .

Q.

In about four weeks we are likely to move from our terraced residence on the outskirts of Alnwick into a bigger flat in Wylam . What is the optimum stage to appoint a house removal firm?

A.

The ideal approach is to delay arranging the removals company until such time as everyone has firmed up the completion date that customarily occurs once contracts have exchanged. A portion of house removals companies might impose a cancellation fine . Try Proudlock W F & Son, Wagonway Rd, Alnwick, NE66 1QP Telephone: 01665 602570 or Brian & Sons Removals & Storage, Unit 14 Oak Dr, Lionheart Enterprise Pk, Alnwick, NE66 2EU on 01665 605634.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Alnwick?

A.

Alnwick is located in Northumberland County Council, County Hall, Morpeth, NE61 2EF, Tel: 0845 600 6400

Q.

What does a Alnwick property solicitor advise if the flat we are planning to buy is inside a Northumberland local authority conservation area which has inappropriate roof antenna installed?

A.

The local authority enquiries conducted by a property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing will find out if the property is within a conservation area and evidence of council approval for changes to the property will be asked for. If no authority consents can be provided, your solicitor will inform you of all options which can include seeking an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Chatton?

A.

Your Alnwick conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be taken out. In Alnwick's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
