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.

How can we calculate SDLT, and how much should we pay on a £477000 residential property?

A.

The Stamp Duty that is payable will depend on the house's value. On a £477000 home, stamp duty will be £14310.

Q.

How long may the legal work to sell a home need? We need to move quickly.

A.

For the majority of home buyers, the number of weeks taken to transfer residential property is not wholly predictable, dependent on a range of considerations. Our conveyancing solicitors work hard to ensure the matter is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

What can a Seaham conveyancing solicitor advise if the property we hope to purchase is inside a County Durham planning authority conservation area and turns out to have unfitting artificial stone cladding installed?

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by your solicitor during the legal process should ascertain if the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of consent for changes to the property will be supplied.

Q.

Which actual searches does a property lawyer in Seaham do when instructed on a Seaham house?

A.

The customary procedure is to get the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Seaham searches, which may include a Planning and local information.

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.

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.

Handling the legal work without using a Seaham solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a seller of a maisonette. Would it really be viable ?

A.

In theory, there is no argument at all why a home mover cannot do the your own conveyancing unaided.

In reality however, a Seaham property solicitor carries out a huge array of actions including interpreting replies to enquiries and communication with the lender most of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified professional. Moreover lawyers must get suitable insurance cover that ultimately protects you in the event of carelessness.
