Are you buying a residential property in the Bishop Auckland area? Helpful local Bishop Auckland public transport and services facts and figures ;

Bishop Auckland's nearest station is Bishop Auckland and Bishop Auckland's nearest airport is Darlington, Durham Tees Valley Airport (14 miles).

Lady Eden Bishop Auckland is a relatively close hospital.

Q.

On the purchase of a 659,000 property, what will be the fees? We are looking for a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

Numerous conveyancers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Additional fees listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear. A quote should list the disbursements to be paid.

Q.

What will contaminate land in Bishop Auckland, and are they properly investigated?

A.

Land in Bishop Auckland may have been contaminated by many environmental factors, such as proximity to landfill sites and overhead transmission lines. An environmental search can give more clarity. John O' Tooles Quarry, County Durham, DL14 8AH, for example, may be a source of local contamination.

Q.

Which of the mortgage lender panels in Bishop Auckland are your solicitors on?

A.

Homeward Legal have worked in conjunction with most lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Bishop

Auckland, like Britannia, 10 Newgate St, Bishop Auckland, DL14 7EG, Darlington Building Society, 116 Newgate St, Bishop Auckland, DL14 7EN, and Halifax, 76-78 Newgate St, Bishop Auckland, DL14 7EQ.

Q.

When should you arrange a conveyancer to act on our purchase?

A.

Generally, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that may be performed immediately. Early instruction of a firm could mitigate the chance of your sale or purchase aborting.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Bishop Auckland?

A.

Bishop Auckland is located in Durham County Council, County Hall, Durham, DH1 5UL, Call: 0300 123 7070

Q.

Following recent news about the flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England, we are questioning if flood risk searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches conducted by a Bishop Auckland conveyancer will include the more detailed search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still concerned try to contact a local resident or local County Durham flood damage builder - e.g. Moffett & March Ltd, 20 Warwick Rd, Bishop Auckland, DL14 6LT Tel: 01388 450019.

Q.

Would arranging a house survey be necessary when buying property?

A.

It is highly recommended that purchasers in Bishop Auckland order a RICS survey. There can be a range of problems that can affect a property. These include cracked roof tiles. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Might our conveyancing charges for our Bishop Auckland sale cover any extra charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any hidden extra costs for any reason. It may be that a separate piece of work is also advised, a lease extension. Your solicitor will discuss these as necessary.
