Local information and addresses ;

Newcastle Airport is 15 miles from Lanchester. Darlington Airport is 25 miles away and Lanchester's closest train station is Chester-Le-Street.

South Moor Stanley is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing in Lanchester?

A.

Several property lawyers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra costs are frequently hidden in small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers Additional charges included in terms of engagement should be reasonable. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

What factors can affect land in Lanchester, and should they be a problem?

A.

Land is contaminated by a range of natural causes. Contaminants like local historic industrial processes or pollution incidents will be investigated during the conveyancing process. Ushaw College, County Durham, DH7 9 is one such potential cause of local contamination.

Q.

We are selling our jointly owned house at a residential property auction, does your company any property auction specialist especially fast Lanchester solicitors ?

A.

We always take a highly proactive plan of attack to carrying out the conveyancing process as quickly as possible. With Homeward Legal, conveyancers try to communicate up the chain and have invested in speed focused online and IT systems to exchange on the property sale as quickly as possible.

Q.

The local agent has referred a firm of solicitors. Will it be easier to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Many agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals should be thoroughly considered, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

I plan to buy a house in the parish of Sockburn. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the residence being purchased is located. In Lanchester's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What individual property should the Lanchester conveyancer do when buying a Lanchester property?

A.

The customary conveyancing protocol will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Lanchester searches such as Index Map.

Q.

I have been reading about doing your own conveyancing when selling a house - Would it be a false economy to take care of the legal side without any help?

A.

Should you wish to refer to the various books, you can look after the greater part of the conveyancing without engaging an expert property solicitor in Lanchester. Of course firms and their solicitors would suggest that this is a potentially hazardous course of action amateur lawyers are taking risks without acceptable insurance which every legal practices always obtain.

Q.

How soon should you instruct a conveyancer?

A.

If you use a conveyancing firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the faster you instruct the better. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Lanchester sale or purchase can limit the risk of your transaction stalling.
