Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £80k property? I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote.

A.

Lack of clarity over this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extras listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable. Applicable disbursements ought to be defined on any quote for conveyancing in CattonWe offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel liability search when you are purchasing in Catton close by a priory built in the 16th Century?

A.

The outcome of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including tithe documents.

Q.

I am buying a an extended building in a designated conservation area in Catton. Where does one uncover more data concerning the present state of repair of the conservation area?

A.

English Heritage have put together records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.

Local conservation areas are set up by the local Northumberland planning authority, who oversee conservation area concerns from paths to the policing of billboards.

Q.

The vendor appears to have fitted new windows to the property in Catton which I think might possibly break nearby conservation area rules

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to establish whether the property is located within a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have required consents from the local authority. If no appropriate consents be available your conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the alternatives for example requesting an indemnity policy or getting retrospective permission from the council.

Q.

How long will it take our assigned conveyancer to conclude all of the conveyancing work on a terraced home?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from a month to twelve weeks depending on various things, like the speed of the sellers solicitor, or the time taken to get a mortgage offer.

Our chosen property lawyers are very proactive completing in as little time as realistically possible.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a Victorian Band G flat in Catton?

Apparently, molybdenum soil contamination may be an issue in Catton. Can you advise?
