Q.

How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Seaham?

A.

This issue catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unregarded by busy buyers and sellers Any additional fees included in terms of engagement needs to be fair. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

I am buying a barn conversion in Seaham. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

The Seaham conveyancing solicitor could advise a chancel search. In Seaham's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey necessary when we are purchasing property?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly recommend that all buyers in Seaham book a RICS survey. There can be many defects that

have a negative impact on a property. These can include wet rot, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in Seaham do you work with?

A.

Of lenders with offices proximate to Seaham, Homeward Legal work with the bulk of them. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Mortgages Face 2 Face, 12 Adelaide Row, Seaham, SR7 7EF.

Q.

Is there a danger that we will be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where a seller approves an offer and then rejects it, opting for a greater offer. Gazumping may happen even months into a purchase. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

The local agent has named a firm of solicitors who they generally use. Will it be cheaper to instruct this firm?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. Such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What factors will impact land in Seaham. Are they a concern?

A.

A broad range of contaminants caused by natural and human-influenced issues may ruin property, like existing and proposed overhead electricity cables. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

We have requested a quote from you. Are there any additional charges?

A.

No. Our solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden charges under any circumstances. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.
