Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing in Hexham?

A.

Many solicitors promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

What do conveyancing searches apply to?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a typical collection of questions ordered by your conveyancer. They will not advise on the structure of the property.

Q.

Do we need to opt for a firm of solicitors that works with by the agent?

A.

Many estate agents will have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

Accord Mortgages Ltd will be our lender - what do I need to know?

A.

Prior to recent changes, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders. Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal, though, will act for all large mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Can you recommend how to avoid paying out for stamp duty on property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally payable for homes priced at over 125,000 pounds. We strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been a range of government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

Can we get a move on and exchange contracts on the legal process a leasehold apartment as soon as possible, do you have any fast solicitors in Hexham ?

A.

Our property lawyers take a thoroughly proactive modus operandi when completing the necessary legal work as fast as possible.

Our approach is different - we use new practice management systems .

We always also give property sellers a SRA conveyancing solicitor incentivised to communicate by phone and email with everyone in the home buyer and seller chain e.g. mortgage lenders, for a fast completion.

Q.

Are there any designated conservation areas in Hexham?

A.

These areas recognise neighbourhoods designated as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Your property solicitor will offer more information and discuss what specific restrictions are in place, regarding specific conservation areas in Hexham.

Q.

How can I go about check if the conservation area we are buying in is neglected?

A.

English Heritage administer information in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Hexham and across England along with the vulnerability. Conservation areas in Hexham are created by Northumberland who preside over everything from including things like street posts, the colours of paint used and whether trees can be cut down.
