Q.

How do I get the cheapest Darlington conveyancing quote?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra fees which are listed in the terms should be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

What can I do to get out of paying out for stamp duty on buying a house in Darlington?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not advised, because these schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.

Q.

As a consequence of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England we are apprehensive that flood risk searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches applied for by your conveyancer in Darlington should also include the more in depth search (Landmark) if required.

If you are concerned you could attempt to get in touch with a next door neighbour or nearby North East England flood damage expert e.g. Highthorn Developments, 22 Uplands Rd, Darlington, DL3 7SP Tel: 07971 546986.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing a property in Darlington, and would like to verify that there are any conservation areas.

A.

With over 9,000 conservation areas across the country, the areas near or within Darlington include several areas of historic or architectural significance registered as protected. Northgate, West End (formerly Stanhope / Grange Road) and Victoria Embankment are among the conservation areas in Darlington. Living in a conservation area can mean protection for parks and green spaces, but the restrictions can add to maintenance costs. A solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

How do we determine stamp duty rates in Darlington, what should we pay on a £110000 residence?

A.

Stamp Duty in Darlington is based on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £0 on a £110000 house or flat (information accurate November 2012).

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing on the same street as land owned by the church in Darlington.

A.

There are 15000 Church of England and Church of Wales parishes throughout the UK. Property owners within some of these may be required to contribute towards the cost of the repair of a local church. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Darlington Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church properties in Darlington where a chancel search may be appropriate include St John, Cleasby w Stapleton St Peter, St Matthew and Eryholme St Mary.

Q.

How long on average does it take my property lawyer to exchange the conveyancing process on the lower floor of house we are intending to buy in Darlington?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months, which can depend on various factors like the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.

Q.

Which mortgage lender panels in Darlington are you on?
