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.

I am likely to be finally moving from our period property near Berwick Upon Tweed into a new home in Belford at what point to appoint a removal company?

A.

The ideal approach is for home movers to avoid instructing a removal firm until after everyone has confirmed the home moving date that takes place once final contracts are signed. Commonly home removals companies add a cancellation fee

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Berwick Upon Tweed?

A.

Berwick Upon Tweed is located in Northumberland County Council, County Hall, Morpeth, NE61 2EF, contact: 0845 600 6400

Q.

How early should we get a solicitor?

If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better, as there are several tasks that can begin very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

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

A.

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 need to know which Berwick Upon Tweed lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Whose panels are you a member of?

A.

Our solicitors have experience working with the majority of lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Berwick Upon Tweed, including Simply Mortgages Plus, 26 Douglas Cr, Kelso, TD5 8BB, and Zenith Mortgages, 31 Coldingham Rd, Eyemouth, TD14 5AN.

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.

Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?

A.

A quote will itemise fees and disbursements, clearly stating which is which. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.
