Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor for buying a freehold property?

A.

Various property lawyers claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees will be included in small print. Any costs needs to be fair. A quote should also state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

Are you able to complete fast the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Berwick Upon Tweed?

A.

In fact we prepare legal packs for vendors and regularly handle the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. It is a shrewd move to appoint a solicitor as rapidly as they can to allow time for a thorough review of the auction pack well before the auction day. Subsequently, following the auction your appointed lawyer is geared up to finishing all of the legal work in a month as usually required .

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Berwick Upon Tweed and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. The local authority for Berwick Upon Tweed will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Carham?

Your solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the residence being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will remain liability-free for new owners. For property in the parish of Carham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

We are on a deadline and would like get fast conveyancing, what do we need to get?

A.

Finding a communicative lawyer is key a faster move. There are, in addition, a range of things you could do, including, arranging any finances require to complete the purchase, replying to your lawyer by phone, fax or email and keeping in regular contact with the lawyer.

Q.

Will we be able to get our skates on and complete on the conveyancing process on our apartment in around a month, do you use fast Berwick Upon Tweed conveyancers ?

A.

Homeward Legal adopts a very take charge approach to completing the legal process for movers.

Our lawyers approach is different as we have invested in advanced workflow systems .

Q.

How is Berwick Upon Tweed contaminated land identified?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities can harm the resale value of property in Berwick Upon Tweed, like other sources of contaminated land. An environmental search will offer more detail. Linkhamdean Waste Disposal Site, Northumberland, TD15 is one such potential cause of local contamination.

Q.

I am buying with Ecology Building Society, what do I need to know?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal can act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.
