Will it be possible to move quickly and complete on the selling of a freehold flat in a narrow time frame, does your solicitor panel have fast Newcastle under Lyme property lawyers ?


We believe that our property lawyers always adopt a highly take charge approach when completing the conveyancing

Our method is different as we use leading edge IT and practice management systems .

We always give clients a regulated lawyer prepared to communicate by phone and email with all parties in the property chain like local councils, to reach a fast move.


Should I make use of the law firm offered by our local agent?


Many estate agents have referral deals with solicitors where they refer clients to them. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

If I am intending to buy near Newcastle under Lyme, in the parish of Hanford, do we need a chancel search?


The conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


Handling the legal work without the support of a Newcastle under Lyme solicitor appears to be becoming possible when buying a house. Would it be risky ?


Theoretically speaking there are no arguments why you should not carry out the legal and technical work yourself.

The truth is however that a property solicitor juggles a large number of actions ranging from chasing deeds and DS1 documents or ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors most of which really need experience.

Furthermore firms and their solicitors are required to carry suitable insurance cover to protect you from any failures made by the lawyer.
