Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £342,000 house? We need to find low cost conveyancing.

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Any additional costs needs to be fair and be applicable solely where the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What is the authority that keeps records for watching over the standard of Ingleby Barwick conservation areas?

A.

Local conservation areas are set up by the local Stockton-on-Tees planning authority, who manage everything from including things like poorly maintained public spaces, the addition of stone cladding and public spaces.

Following a campaign, English Heritage administer details in relation to the condition of conservation areas in County Durham and throughout England along with the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

Will we need a building surveyor to check for defects affecting the house purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal advise that you book a property surveyor to perform a survey. There are a wide range of problems which can affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, such as corrosion of pipework.

Q.

I plan to buy a house in Rokeby. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, whichever parish where the residence being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future.

A.

There are laws in place to control top-soil contamination. The local authority for Ingleby Barwick will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.
