The closest train station to Stamfordham is Wylam, around 5 miles away and Stamfordham's closest airport is Newcastle Airport (6 miles).

Prudhoe hospital is relatively close to Stamfordham.

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 are Stamfordham searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a pack of questions requested by the solicitor, such as a brine search. They are not a substitute for a survey.

Q.

Is your solicitor team able to complete within 28 days of exchange on property auction conveyancing in Stamfordham?

A.

The legal team prepare legal packs for vendors and regularly do the legal conveyancing buyers at auction. Lawyers invariably advocate buyers at auction to formally appoint an experienced conveyancing company in advance of the actual auction to give enough time for a review of the sellers legal pack.

Thereafter, following the property auction you are the lawyer must be prepared for briskly complete the legal side of things in less than the 28 day time frame as usually required by the terms of sale.

Q.

How do I check if a house is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Areas considered to be of architectural or historic interest, like fishing villages, may be designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the council for more information, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

We plan to purchase a rectory in Bellingham. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

A conveyancer could advise a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is located. Chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a house where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

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.

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.

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.
