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.

The internet has plenty of helpful books on the subject of doing your own legal work for example House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property by Joseph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth . Do I actually want to use a property solicitor in Hartlepool ?

A.

If you are so inclined do so, you can conceivably engage in the greater part of the legal work without engaging a professional Hartlepool property solicitor .

The truth is however that a Hartlepool lawyer typically handles a long list of exercises ranging from chasing replies to requisitions and identifying conservation area breaches which require a skilled professional. Even more importantly DIY lawyers are taking risks without the appropriate professional indemnity insurance which all solicitors firms are under a duty to have.

Q.

As a consequence of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England we are wondering whether environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches handled by your conveyancer in Hartlepool will include a far more rigorous search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are apprehensive you might try to get in touch with a future neighbour.

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.

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.

How is contaminated land in Hartlepool identified?

A.

Several contaminants could impact property in Hartlepool. Issues including other land contamination should be reported on during conveyancing searches. Back Lane, Greatham, TS25 2EQ is one such potential source of contamination.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Hartlepool?

A.

Hartlepool is located in Hartlepool Borough Council, Civic Centre, Victoria Road, Hartlepool, TS24 8AY phone: 01429 266 522

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately fitted ill-suited windows on the property in Hartlepool which we think might possibly break conservation area criteria

A.

Your instructed property lawyer to identify whether the property is inside a conservation area and whether any alterations have requisite permission.
