Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am looking for fixed rate Morpeth conveyancing.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Any extra costs listed in the terms needs to be reasonable and clear. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on a Morpeth conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How is Morpeth contaminated land investigated?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities may reduce the value of property, like pollution incidents. An environmental search can give more clarity. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Bothal Barns Farm, Northumberland, NE61 6QL.

Q.

What should we do regarding rubidium (Rb) soil contamination in Morpeth?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Morpeth, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination and insecticides.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Lesbury?

The conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is ordered, whichever parish in which the home being purchased is located. In older areas of Morpeth, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a home where church councils have previously chosen not to do so.
