Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many law firms promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the small print that buyers often do not check. Costs found in the terms should be reasonable. A quote should also clearly state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

What can I do to defer paying out for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty is usually payable for houses over £125,000. Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended for purchases in Newton Aycliffe. Such schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

The current owner looks to have added unsuitable removal of chimney stacks on the home in Newton Aycliffe which I think may conflict with conservation area rules

A.

Your property solicitor will find out whether your proposed purchase is affected by a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have requisite consent from the County Durham authority.

Q.

In regards to the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England, I am wondering if property conveyancing searches might not be exacting enough?

A.

Flood searches conducted by a Newton Aycliffe property lawyer should include the more informative flood search if required.

If you are concerned it may be worth trying to call a neighbour or local resident or nearby County Durham flood damage business - such as: J Howard Decorators, 15 Northside Cl, Middridge, Newton Aycliffe, DL5 7JS Tel: 01642 685496.

Q.

In 1 month we are looking to move out of our semi detached residence in Newton Aycliffe into a home in Hartlepool , what is the right point to choose a home removal company?

A.

Homeward Legal tend to advise that house movers wait booking a removals company until the point where exchange of contracts because in all probability an agreed date will not have been confirmed. Why not try Acorn Removals, 14 Heatherburn Court, Newton Aycliffe, DL5 4UY on 01325 300557 or D M Transport, 16 Van Mildert Rd, Newton Aycliffe, DL5 5DS Phone: 01325 354226.

Q.

The web is full of an increasing number online books going into great depth on doing the legal work yourself. Do we necessarily want to use a conveyancing solicitor in Newton Aycliffe for my home move?

A.

Legally speaking there are absolutely no arguments why you cannot conduct your own conveyancing on your own. That said, a lawyer handles a significant number of jobs including chasing deeds and DS1 documents or apportioning service charges which really need a qualified professional. In any event however, solicitors practices are made responsible to carry the correct indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you from any professional carelessness.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should you speak to a solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the earlier, the better. The legal work can then start immediately. Promptly instructing a conveyancing firm for a purchase means that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

We are intending to buy a period house in the boundary of conservation areas. How do we find more data in regards to the state of upkeep?

A.

Local Newton Aycliffe conservation areas are designated by the local authority (County Durham) who manage things like what can be demolished to the halting of poorly maintained pavements. English Heritage have put together a list on the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the trend.
