Q.

We are looking for a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. as we are on a budget.

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees may increase the final invoice. Additional charges found in the terms should be fair and reasonable and be applied only where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Jesmond?

A.

Jesmond is located in Newcastle upon Tyne City Council, Civic Centre, Barras Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE99 2BN, phone: 0191 232 8520

Q.

What can contaminate land in Jesmond. Will they be comprehensively investigated?

A.

A wide range of contaminants may impact property in Jesmond, and an environmental search will confirm if a specific residence is affected by contaminants in the area such as limestone or gypsum quarrying.

Q.

We are buying in Jesmond on a recently-developed brownfield land. Is strontium topsoil contamination likely?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Jesmond, but some very localised cases of contamination in Jesmond may pose unacceptably high risk. Also considering issues such as hazardous gases and groundwater

contaminants like silage, contaminants affecting Jesmond property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Handling the legal work without the help of a conveyancing solicitor in Jesmond looks to be possible when buying and selling a house. However actually be wise ?

A.

Should you want to have a stab you can take care of the if not all of the legal process without the services of a qualified lawyer in Jesmond .

Of course solicitors would suggest that inherently this is a very risky thing to do as have a go conveyancers take huge risks in operating without relevant professional indemnity insurance which all legal practices must be covered by.

Q.

Are many Jesmond areas of conservation likely to impact the house we are buying?

A.

These areas protect areas recognised as being of historical or architectural value. You may wish to contact the local council for further information, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the conveyancing process.

Q.

In about five weeks we are likely to move from our detached residence near Jesmond into a new flat in Birtley . At what stage to choose a removal company?

A.

We would tend to recommend that home vendors delay organising removals until after exchange of contracts because usually a final moving date will not have been agreed. Try Acorn's Removals & Transport, 86 Hazelwood Ave, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE2 3HX Telephone: 0191 281 2827 or Top To Toe Removals Man & Van, 137 Holystone Cr, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE7 7HA on 0800 511 8621.

Q.

In respect of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England we are anxious that flood searches won't be sufficient?

A.

A diligent Jesmond property lawyer will recommend that you apply for rigorous property environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the environmental conveyancing searches determine a Jesmond flooding risk.

It may be prudent to also converse with a local resident to get added peace of mind.
