Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms. Additional fees should be reasonable and clear and be applicable solely where your solicitor must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Will a title report prepared by the lawyer in Hartlepool report on the rates of the council tax on a flat before exchange of contracts?

A.

The property solicitor will contact the Hartlepool local council to ascertain the relevant council tax rates, which will then be added to the title report. Correct charges for homes in Hartlepool are detailed online at the Hartlepool council website. As at, 18 February 2013, band rates are:

How is contaminated land in Hartlepool identified?

A.

Q.

I am looking to move out of our detached residence in Hartlepool to a abode in Durham . At what point to book a removal company?

A.

Best practice is for home movers to avoid booking the removals company until the point where both sides have set an absolute completion date which occurs once final contracts are signed. Local removals firms include Sandersons, Tofts Farm Ind Est West/Brenda Rd, Hartlepool, TS25 2BQ Telephone: 01740 622022 or ACE, Tees Bay Business Pk/Brenda Rd, Hartlepool, TS25 2BU on 01429 269222.

Q.

I am buying a 1950s building in a designated conservation area in Hartlepool, how does one find information on the state of upkeep?

A.

Local Hartlepool conservation areas are nominated by the local Hartlepool planning authority, who administer things like what can be developed to the hindrance of street posts. Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced a detailed list on the state of conservation areas in addition to the trend.

Q.

Does Hartlepool include many designated conservation areas?

A.

Parts of Hartlepool considered be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like picturesque villages, may be recorded as conservation areas. Your solicitor will provide more details, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Hartlepool.

Q.

I am intending to buy a medieval barn conversion in Cornhill on Tweed. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. In Hartlepool's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
