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.

My partner and I are buying in Newton Aycliffe. Can I find out if the residence is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas detail local areas of historic or architectural significance. Your conveyancing solicitor will offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

In what ways does a Newton Aycliffe conveyancing solicitor advise on the risk and history of local flooding at Newton Aycliffe?

A.

An important component in the legal due diligence process of purchasing a property involves the conveyancing lawyer applying for environmental searches that provide detail about the potential Newton Aycliffe flood risk area.

Q.

What specific property conveyancing searches does my Newton Aycliffe property lawyer conduct for a Newton Aycliffe building?

A.

The standard legal protocol is to get the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental and perhaps less common searches, which may include a Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).

Q.

Should I get a building survey?

A.

It is suggested that property purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of concerns that will impact a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as unsafe chimney circulation.

Q.

Why could purchase conveyancing legal work be so delayed? Should we be worried?

A.

Conveyancing may be drawn out for a variety of reasons. The reasons are beyond the conveyancing solicitor's power. We see how frustrating such delays may be and aim to minimise the burden of these delays wherever it is feasible by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Common delays can include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

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.

Will a report on the property's title compiled by the professional conveyancing solicitor in Newton Aycliffe advise us on the cost of the council tax for a Band D townhouse prior to exchanging contracts?

A.

Your lawyer will approach the relevant local authority to ascertain the latest council tax charges which will be set out in the title report. Up-to-date rates for homes in Newton Aycliffe are listed on the council website.
