Q.

On the purchase of a 696,000 home, what will be the fees? We are looking for affordable conveyancing in Ashington.

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees can increase the final invoice. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on a quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How many weeks should I expect it to take my lawyer to get through all of the legal process for the top floor of new build home?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between a month and three months, which can depend on various issues for example the speed of the vendor's property solicitor, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries. Our chosen property solicitors are exceptionally focused on communication work towards completing in as short a time as achievable.

Q.

May the charges for my conveyancing have any extra fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any additional costs under any circumstances. Our conveyancing quotes offer an single, accurate fee the legal costs for your transaction.

Q.

We are buying a £949000 property in Ashington, how is SDLT calculated?

A.

The SDLT you pay is calculated with reference to a small number of factors, including the purchase price. On a £949000 house or flat, stamp duty will be £37960.

Q.

Will we need a home buyers survey for our home purchase?

A.

It is heavily suggested that purchasers in Ashington book a property survey. It is a fact that there are a range of problems that will impact a property. These include roof damage or insect infestation, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

The maisonette being bought is on a former industrial site. Is chromium top-soil contamination likely?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Ashington, but where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Data on many contaminants, such as hazardous gases, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

In relation to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England, I am worried that flood risk searches aren't detailed enough?

A.

Flood risk searches conducted by your property solicitor in Ashington will include the far more thorough search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are still nervous you could attempt to contact a next door neighbour.

Q.

Do your house conveyancing solicitors manage the conveyancing for auction properties in Ashington?

A.

Our recommended conveyancing firms in Ashington commonly act for auction buyers and sellers. Lawyers strongly advise auction buyers to appoint an experienced property conveyancing lawyer prior to the day of the auction to give enough time for a full investigation of the auction pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction your appointed lawyer is completely geared up to finishing the purchase within as short a time frame as typically required .
