Q.

Should I read about the conveyancing process as a buyer and seller of a maisonette , Would it be risky to do the DIY conveyancing without help.?

A.

Conceivably there is no reason why a seller cant go down that route and do the legal work without assistance. In reality however, a Dunston conveyancer is in charge of a large array of assignments ranging from chasing lender for comments on issues raised and apportioning ground rents most of which require training. Additionally lawyers are bound to get insurance cover to safeguard you in the event of failures.

Q.

My agent has referred a firm of solicitors that they have used before. Do we need to instruct them?

A.

Your Seahouses agent will be able to influence a conveyancing firm they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore pressure a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

How much would the fees for my conveyancing searches be?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost. These searches are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search? I am buying near parsonage grounds in Dunston.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Dunston Church council. Parochial Church Councils in Dunston must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Dunston ecclesiastical properties include S.Leonard, St Nicholas with Christ Church, St Peter and St Remigius.

Q.

How many weeks should it take my assigned property solicitor to carry out all of the conveyancing formalities on a terraced forties home?

A.

It can take anywhere from around a month and three months dependent on various issues e.g. the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or absent parties.
