Q.

I am looking for a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees can inflate the final bill. The quote must also state the disbursements to be paid. Additional costs needs to be reasonable and clear and only apply in cases where your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Do your property lawyers look after the conveyancing of property auction properties in Sedgefield?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is familiar with sellers at auction. We tend to encourage purchasers to instruct a suitable conveyancing company before the day of the auction to allow enough time for a detailed review of the legal papers for the lot. Immediately following the property auction date a lawyer has to be focused on carry out the legal work in under 28 days as typically required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

How soon do I need to instruct a conveyancer?

A.

Generally, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can begin very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm for a sale enables information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

Which lenders in Sedgefield do you work with?

A.

Our solicitors have experience working beside many lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Sedgefield, including Mortgage Advice Centre, 126 Newgate St, Bishop Auckland, DL14 7EN, Homesavers Mortgages & Loans Ltd, 6 Kensington South, Bishop Auckland, DL14 6JA, and Mortgage Service Centres, 77 Bondgate, Darlington, DL3 7JT. The property lawyer handling your case will be able to address any specific requests your lender may have.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Muggleswick, near Sedgefield?

A.

Your solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. In older areas of Sedgefield, chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Which government authority is under obligation for policing the condition of Sedgefield conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage administer records in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas in Sedgefield and across England along with the vulnerability to a decline in standards. Local Sedgefield conservation areas are specified by County Durham who maintain everything from including things like ugly parking meters, addition of PVC windows and trees.

Q.

The property in Sedgefield being purchased is on a former industrial site. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Sedgefield. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as bleach and fertilisers, contaminants affecting Sedgefield property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

How long should conveyancing legal work need? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

The time taken to transfer residential property is not wholly predictable, with reference to a range of considerations. With Homeward Legal's Sedgefield property experts, your sale, purchase or remortgage is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.
