The nearest train station to Monkseaton is Cramlington, around 6 miles away and the nearest airport to Monkseaton is Newcastle Airport (10 miles).

Q.

Noted Monkseaton interest

A.

St Mary Lighthouse Lighthouse, Tynemouth Priory and Castle English Heritage and Rising Sun Country Park are near to Monkseaton.

The most convenient hospital for Monkseaton is North Shields, North Tyneside General.

Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing in Monkseaton?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges can inflate your final bill. Your quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements).

Q.

Is there anything we can do to avoid paying SDLT rates?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually payable on property priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward Legal do not advise conveyancing clients risk any stamp duty avoidance, as such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will then be due. There have been several government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

How long should conveyancing legal work take?

A.

In general, the length of time needed to transact a property does vary, affected by several factors. With our property specialists, every sale is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

Are the many areas of conservation in Monkseaton likely to affect us?

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as picturesque villages, will be designated as areas of conservation. Your property solicitor will provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area, regarding specific conservation areas in Monkseaton.

Q.

Will our legal charges conceal any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra costs to buy or sell a property. A Homeward Legal quote is an single, accurate fee.

Q.

If I plan to purchase near Monkseaton, in the parish of Monkseaton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is found. Although some church councils have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no guarantee that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners. For property in the parish of Monkseaton, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How is Monkseaton contaminated land investigated when buying a property?

A.

A wide range of contaminants may reduce the value of Monkseaton property, and an environmental search should reveal if a property is impacted by Monkseaton contaminants like masts or pylons or proximity to landfill sites.

Q.

Why can conveyancing legal work go on for so long?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home will occasionally be lengthy. Homeward Legal work hard to reduce their impact by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Delays include a slow firm acting for the lender.
