Q.

To complete on our property purchase ASAP, can we arrange a fast exchange and completion?

A.

As is often reported, a fast completion is key to instruct a proactive, diligent solicitor. When selecting a solicitor, you should ask the following: Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

A.

With over 9,000 conservation areas across the country, the streets and neighbourhoods in or near Beadnell include a range of areas of architectural or historic interest recorded as protected. You may wish to contact the local council for further information, but your property solicitor will address this during the conveyancing process.

The internet is full of an increasing number useful resources all about by passing the solicitor such as Buying a House: A Step-by-step Guide to Buying Your Ideal Home (How to) by Adam Walker . Do I therefore need to spend money on a conveyancer in Beadnell for my home move?

A.

It can possible to handle the conveyancing yourself. In reality however, a property solicitor handles a long list of tasks such as chasing lender for comments on issues raised or applying for searches most of which need a qualified solicitor.

We plan to purchase a property in the parish of Shotley. Is a chancel search required?

A solicitor may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the residence being purchased is located. In Beadnell's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
