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.

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.

I am intending to buy a residence in Sunderland St John. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What do we need to calculate SDLT and what should it be on a £1.024mil Newton Aycliffe house?

A.

The SDLT that will be due will depend on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £51200 on a £1.024mil residential property in Newton Aycliffe (information accurate November 2012).

Q.

Q.

Are your lawyers experienced enough to complete fast the conveyancing of auction properties in Newton Aycliffe?

A.

The legal team are property auction specialists and do frequently handle the legal work for auction buyers and sellers. It SI highly advisable for purchasers to select a good conveyancing company as rapidly as possible to allow enough time for a full report of the legal documents in advance of the day of the auction. Immediately following the property auction date, your conveyancing solicitor will need to be prepared for carry out the transaction in 28 days as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.

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.

Will the form for fixtures and fittings list items such as carpets?

A.

In the main, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls and other surfaces, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. Conveyancing solicitors recommend a formal fixtures and fittings form to avoid later disagreements and will save considerable frustration later.
