Q.

I am looking for low cost conveyancing. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees may inflate the final bill. Any charges listed in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable. They only apply in cases where the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Benton?

A.

Benton is located in Newcastle upon Tyne City Council, Civic Centre, Barras Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE99 2BN, Tel: 0191 232 8520

Q.

What does a Benton property solicitor advise if the maisonette I am intending to buy is in a Newcastle upon Tyne local authority conservation area that possibly has unseemly new windows added?

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by your solicitor during the legal process will determine the existence of suitable permission for any additions to the property.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Benton investigated?

A.

Property in Benton can be contaminated by a wide range of factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search will confirm that a house is impacted by contaminants in Benton like landfill sites.

Q.

Can you advise how I circumvent paying stamp duty?

A.

We strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail. There have been certain government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

What causes conveyancing legal work to require months?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Benton property can be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal endeavour to minimise the burden of these delays by chasing for prompt responses.

Q.

Could the conveyancing fees include any additional charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra fees to buy or sell a home in Benton. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

I have been reading about doing ones own conveyancing when selling a maisonette - Would it be a money saving idea to carry out the legals without any help?

A.

Should you want to try, you can undertake the legal and technical work without a skilled Benton conveyancer .

More importantly DIY lawyers might come a cropper suitable indemnity cover that all firms and their solicitors are obligated to have.
