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.

My partner and I are purchasing in Alnwick, and would like to find out whether there are any designated conservation areas.

A.

With 9300 affected areas throughout England, the areas in or near Alnwick will include numerous conservation areas. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. A solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

Do we need to be worried about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

House purchasers in Alnwick are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding fixtures and fittings. The fixtures and fittings form is intended to avoid confusion and will confirm which items are included in the sale.

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?

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.

The web is full of a growing number publications on the subject of by passing the solicitor such as Buy, Sell & Move House: A Complete Guide to Navigating the Property Market by Kate Faulkner. Do we necessarily need to instruct a conveyancer in Alnwick ?

A.

In theory, there is no argument at all why a buyer shouldn't take care of he legal process unaided.

However, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a long list of skilled tasks ranging from chasing replies to enquiries and collating and preparing contract and package most of which require training. Additionally solicitors firms always pay for professional indemnity insurance in order to protect you from any losses you encounter.

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.

The lender will be Darlington Building Society, what do I need to check?

A.

A small number of lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased legal costs for buyers if a second lawyer is required by their lender. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for many mortgage lenders.

Q.

Do searches affect a decision to buy?

A.

Searches are questions carried out for the buyer, and only relate to issues with the property's title.
