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.

How long on average should I expect it to take our assigned lawyer to conclude the legal formalities on an apartment in a fifties building in Eaglescliffe?

A.

The process can take anywhere between 3 weeks and twelve weeks, which can be hampered by any number of factors such as the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of your lender.

Q.

What is the authority that is under obligation for policing the state of neglect Eaglescliffe conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage administer records of the state of repair of conservation areas. Local Eaglescliffe conservation areas are created by the local Stockton-on-Tees planning authority, who are responsible for the state of the area including things like plastic box signs, removal of existing windows and upkeep of paths.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in October. How is SDLT calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed is based on the purchase price of the house. For a house or flat estimated at £955000, SDLT will be £38200.

Q.

What steps can I take to get out of paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend clients arrange any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are costly and very risky.

Q.

What kind of local environmental checks in connection with the risk and history of a flood in the County Durham region will my conveyancing solicitor in Eaglescliffe actually carry out on a buy to let home I am intending to purchase?

A.

The lawyer will carry out formal property environmental searches that incorporate Eaglescliffe flood risk information. A substantially more involved flood history/risk search, such as the Homecheck search, could be advocated by a conveyancer in Eaglescliffe, if in the event that the initial searches suggest a flood risk.

Q.

Which Eaglescliffe mortgage lender panels are you on?

A.

We have worked closely with many lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Eaglescliffe, including Lees John S & Co, 11 High St, Stokesley, Middlesbrough, TS9 5AD, Money Box, 13A Dundas St, Redcar, TS10 3AD, and Luckus, 32 Keilder Rise, Hemlington, Middlesbrough, TS8 9HN. Your solicitor should be able to state specific lenders' requirements.

Q.

Are many Eaglescliffe designated conservation areas likely to affect us?

A.

Conservation areas preserve regions defined as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. A solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area and be able to advise further for conservation areas in Eaglescliffe.
