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.

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.

Godiva Mortgages will be our mortgage lender - what will we need to check?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers in cases where the conveyancing solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal can act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

I am preparing to be finally moving from our detached house just outside Catton to a new flat in Bowthorpe . What is the right point to book a home removal company?

A.

Most conveyancers tend to suggest that you wait arranging removals until such time as exchange of contracts because usually an absolute move date wont have been agreed. The majority of house removals companies will levy a re booking levy . For a local Norfolk firm Man & Large Van, 33 Aylsham Rd, Norwich, NR3 3EY on 07530 128635 or Contract Removal Services, 96 Sleaford Green, Norwich, NR3 3JT Phone: 0800 292 2730.

What will my searches cost?

A.

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing by bypassing a Catton conveyancer appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a house. Would it be a money saving idea ?

A.

Should you wish to endeavour to do so you can conduct the greater majority of the your own conveyancing without instructing a proficient Catton conveyancing solicitor. Of course legal firms would suggest this is a hazardous endeavour as amateur lawyers will be working without the critical insurance cover which all legal practices are duty bound to obtain.

Q.

Is a survey necessary when purchasing a property?

A.

It is strongly suggested that all purchasers in Catton instruct a home surveyor to carry out a survey if purchasing in Catton. Many defects will impact a property, including severe weathering or subsidence. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
