I need a cheap solicitor quote to own a home. Can you assist?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs may inflate your solicitor's invoice. Extra fees found in the terms needs to be clearly defined.


For our mortgage lender, we have chosen Bank of Scotland, what do we need to know?


A small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in greater legal costs for property purchasers in cases where the solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. We will act for many mortgage lenders.


Do many conservation areas in Ouston have the potential to affect us?


Conservation areas distinguish streets and neighbourhoods recognised as being of special architectural or historic interest. Your lawyer will offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.


What length of time will the legal work to purchase a house take, on average? If it matters, we are purchasing a house in Ouston.

The number of weeks needed to sell or purchase residential property may vary, dependent on a number of factors. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas Homeward Legal drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.


If we are buying near Ouston, in the parish of Ouston, do we need a chancel search?


A conveyancer should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Ouston, chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of Ouston, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Does the property solicitor in Ouston report back to me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band H building before exchanging contracts?


The conveyancer will liaise with the council to find out the appropriate council tax band and rates, which will be included in the report on title. Correct rates for Ouston are detailed on the Gateshead council site. On (05 February 2013) rates are:

  • Band A - £1,067.00
  • Band B - £1,245.00
  • Band C - £1,422.00
  • Band D - £1,600.00
  • Band E - £1,956.00
  • Band F - £2,311.00
  • Band G - £2,667.00
  • Band H - £3,200.00


I have to exchange on the sale of a maisonette within 6 weeks, are you especially fast Ouston solicitors ?

Our method is to use state of the art practice management systems . Importantly , we give you a conveyancers prepared to communicate up the home buyer and seller chain .
