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.

What will the Shotley Bridge conveyancing lawyer advise if the home I hope to invest in is within a County Durham planning authority conservation area and has out of place window frames fitted?

A.

County Durham local authority searches carried out by a property lawyer should see the existence of the appropriate authorisation for modifications to the building.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a home in Knarsdale. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your property lawyer could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the property being bought is located. In older areas of Shotley Bridge, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What individual property should my Shotley Bridge conveyancer get when carrying out the conveyancing for a Shotley Bridge house?

A.

The regular procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and perhaps area-specific searches such as British Waterways Search.

Q.

Will the report on title compiled by the lawyer in Shotley Bridge give details on rates of the council tax for a Band G property prior to exchanging contracts?

A.

The property solicitor will liaise with the relevant local authority to ascertain the latest council tax charges which will then be added to the report on title. Up-to-date charges for homes in Shotley Bridge are published online at the local authority site.

Q.

Which body keeps records for watching over the standard of Shotley Bridge conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created details on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England in addition to the exposure to deterioration or improvement.

Conservation area concerns, like public spaces, rear extensions or poorly maintained roads are overseen by the local authority (County Durham).

Q.

When in the process do we need to instruct a solicitor in Shotley Bridge?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as there are several tasks which may begin straight away. Early instruction of a solicitor for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Shotley Bridge solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.

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.
