Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? I need to find an affordable Shotley Bridge conveyancing estimate.

A.

Both high-street and online law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms, left unread by preoccupied sellers and buyers Any charges which are listed in the small print should be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How many weeks may conveyancing to purchase a house take, in your opinion? I am purchasing a house in Shotley Bridge.

A.

The time taken to transfer a house may vary. This is affected by a broad set of factors which may include whether there is a mortgage. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, whereas our solicitors aim to complete the process within six weeks.

Q.

Regarding the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England I am apprehensive that flood risk searches might not be exacting enough?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor in Shotley Bridge will also get flood risk searches from Landmark if the initial search spots a significant risk Shotley Bridge area flood risk

You may be able to contact a neighbour or local resident for that more local history.

Q.

Do we need a home buyers survey?

A.

It is strongly suggested that you instruct a surveyor. It is a fact that there are a range of defects that will impact a property, which include cracked roof tiles and corrosion of pipework.

Q.

Our estate agent in Usk has named the firm of solicitors. Will it be faster to use them?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon route for buyers to find a solicitor, however, such referrals need to be considered carefully, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Can you give the reasons why the purchase conveyancing process takes so long?

A.

The legal work undertaken to transfer a home in Shotley Bridge may be delayed. We strive to minimise their cost, if it is possible to do so, by chasing for prompt responses.

Q.

I am going to sell our freehold house at an auction, can Homeward Legal get us fast Shotley Bridge conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Commonly conveyancing lawyers are very inactive which usually adds large amounts of pressure to the home conveyancing process.

Our SRA regulated solicitors approach to conveyancing is different as we use modern technology and practice management systems . Crucially , we always allocate you a lawyer practiced at communicate from the start to the end of the home buyer and seller chain .

Q.

Can I circumvent paying SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend property buyers expose their finances to any form of stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed. There have been several official schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.
