Q.

Noted Jarrow interest

A.

Whitburn Tyne & Wear Windmill, St Paul Monastery English Heritage and Rising Sun Country Park are close at hand to Jarrow.

The closest hospital for Jarrow is Palmer Community Jarrow.

Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Additional charges should be reasonable. They only come into force where your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , 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.

Which local authority looks after Jarrow?

A.

Jarrow is located in South Tyneside Metropolitan Borough Council, Town Hall and Civic Offices, Westoe Road, South Shields, Tyne and Wear, NE33 2RL, Call: 0191 427 7003

Q.

What makes the conveyancing process to be so delayed?

A.

The conveyancing process may be held up even in the best of circumstances. In some cases, the delays are out of your solicitor's control. We strive to diminish the effect of these delays if it can be achieved by driving the sale or purchase forward. Common delays include waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

Do I need to select a lawyer referred by my agent?

A.

Your agent will be able to influence a conveyancer they refer a lot of work to, and can therefore induce a slow solicitor to work faster. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

We are buying an extended property in one of the Jarrow conservation area. Where can I find data on the state of upkeep of the area?

A.

Conservation areas are designated by South Tyneside who preserve everything from paths and footpaths to rundown streets. English Heritage maintain a detailed list on the condition of conservation areas in addition to the trend of the area.

Q.

The current owner has unfortunately fitted unbecoming new windows in Jarrow which I think might possibly break local conservation area rules

A.

Your instructed property lawyer will always determine if the property is within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the necessary consents from the South Tyneside authority.

Q.

Do we need to be nervous about gazumping?

A.

This describes circumstances where an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the property seller, in preference to a greater offer. The risk of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor early is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Jarrow, near Jarrow?

A.

Regardless of the Jarrow parish in which you are purchasing, the conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a home where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
