Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement which sellers and buyers may have not read carefully The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

How much can our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, conveyancing clients are required to pay no more than £249 for the standard search bundle. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are not included in your solicitor's fees.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Murton an issue?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by natural causes could irreparably damage land in Murton, like environmental radon sources and proximity to scrap yards. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

Conveyancing and environmental searches may be fine but when one considers current events for instance the flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England

Q.

are they still appropriate to see sufficient information about the changing Murton future flood risk?

A.

A qualified Murton conveyancer should carry out thorough flood risk searches (Landmark search) if the standard conveyancing searches spots a Murton flood risk.

You can also converse with a neighbour of the property for additional added local information.

Q.

I plan to buy a restored chapel in Sunderland St John. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

Your Murton conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. In Murton's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Murton?

A.

Areas considered to be of special architectural or historic interest, like historic transport links, may be defined as areas of conservation. These restrictions can add to maintenance costs, but the benefits will include a more attractive neighbourhood. Your property solicitor will advise further.

Q.

My agent has named a lawyer. Should I use this solicitor?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often recommend one or more conveyancing firms, however, such referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

In what ways does my Murton conveyancing solicitor report back on the risk and history of floods in the Murton region for an Edwardian property we intend to buy?

A.

A solicitor will apply for property conveyancing searches that should include Murton flood risk data.
