Q.

I am trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Consett. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in the small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional charges listed in the small print should be fair and clearly defined. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

What do we need to calculate stamp duty tax?

A.

The Stamp Duty that is payable is calculated with reference to a small range of considerations, including the value of the house or flat, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. On a £1158000 house, stamp duty will be £57900.

Q.

We are purchasing a church rectory in Kyloe. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Whichever Consett parish you are purchasing in, a solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a home where church councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

I am hoping to be finally moving from our period house in Consett into a house in Barnard Castle , at what point to book a house removal firm?

A.

Our recommendation is for home movers to put off agreeing a removal firm until such time as both sides have agreed the final completion date that occurs once signing of contracts. Commonly residential removals firms may charge a late cancellation cost
