Q.

We are looking for a cheap Eaglescliffe solicitor for selling a house. What do we need to consider?

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Having heard about the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England, I am concerned that flood searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

A Eaglescliffe solicitor will get additional thorough conveyancing searches if the standard searches establishes a any kind of Eaglescliffe flood risk area data

Sometimes buyers contact a close neighbour for additional information.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Gainford, near Eaglescliffe?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Eaglescliffe, chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a building where parish councils

have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Is it recommended that we get a chancel search? We are purchasing a maisonette next to a vicarage in Eaglescliffe.

A.

The outcome of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.
