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.

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.

Q.

What do 'conveyancing searches' bear upon?

A.

These searches are a typical collection of enquiries carried out on your behalf, including an environmental search. Conveyancing searches are very informative, but refer specifically to legal facets of the purchase.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £597,000 property, how can we speed things up?

A.

As is often reported, finding a proactive, diligent lawyer is crucial to a fast conveyancing transaction. There are several things you as the buyer can also do. These include:

  • encouraging your lawyer to carry out searches promptly
  • quickly answering your lawyer's questions
  • organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Eaglescliffe apply for necessary searches when instructed to act for a home purchase client - which specific ones?

A.

If getting a mortgage the lender will expect at least specific searches, including the following for Eaglescliffe: Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search, and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches, which might include SIM Search.

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.

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.

Q.

Will I need a homebuyer report?

A.

It is advised that you arrange a survey if buying in Eaglescliffe. Numerous concerns can negatively affect a property. These include blocked drains and cracks in walls.
