Q.

We need a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Peterlee. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however additional costs may be added into the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Chargeswhich are listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair and only apply to matters if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should list applicable disbursements.Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

We are completing in December. What will be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

Stamp Duty is calculated based on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £1360 on a £136000 home.*

Q.

How long may conveyancing often take, according to your estimates? If it matters, we are purchasing a flat in Peterlee.

A.

The number of weeks needed to buy or sell a property can vary. This wide range results from potentially many factors. These may include matters where a property has a mortgage. With our solicitors, your move receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

To complete on our house purchase ASAP, how do we get a fast completion?

A.

Instructing a proactive and experienced lawyer is essential to a fast conveyancing transaction. You should consider:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • How soon will they order searches?

Q.

The local agent has referred a solicitor . Will it be faster to instruct this firm?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common practice path for purchasers to get a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

When you are buying a Peterlee home next to a parsonage, will I need to get a chancel liability search?

A.

In Peterlee, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of specific local church buildings. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Peterlee must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church properties in Peterlee where chancel liability may apply include St Cuthbert.

Q.

What specific conveyancing searches does my Peterlee property solicitor conduct when acting on a Peterlee property?

A.

Standard conveyancing procedure will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly area-specific searches for example Planning Search.

Q.

How much can the charge for my searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, a client is charged no more than £249 for a standard search bundle. Conveyancing searches are disbursements paid to a third party.
