Q.

We need to find a company that offers cheap conveyancing. What should I check?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many home owners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many property lawyers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra costs can increase the final bill. A quote for conveyancing in Stamfordham should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

What will a Stamfordham property lawyer recommend if the home we am buying is in a Northumberland planning authority conservation area that may have unseemly window frames added?

A.

Northumberland planning authority enquiries conducted by your solicitor during the conveyancing process should check if the property is within a designated conservation area and any evidence of consent for modifications will be required.

Q.

Stamfordham conveyancing solicitors get some searches when instructed to act for a property buyer,, but which particular searches?

A.

When you are taking out a mortgage the building society of bank requires you to a solicitor to get at least a specified set of searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search and Environmental and perhaps area-specific searches, which may include a Flood Risk search.

May the fees for our conveyancing incorporate any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

Our solicitors never charge any extra, hidden costs to buy or sell a property. Your conveyancing quote is an honest and accurate price the legal costs for your transaction.

Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search? We are buying a Stamfordham property close to an ecclesiastical parish.

A.

The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Church of England properties in the local area include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

Where can I go about find out if the conservation area is neglected?

A.

Conservation areas are set up by Northumberland who manage the state of the area including things like street posts, rear extensions and the historic layout of roads. English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a detailed list in relation to the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement.
