Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Trimdon for a £61,000 property?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any additional fees should be fair and reasonable. Your conveyancing quote should state any disbursements to be paid.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Should we get a surveying expert to investigate our house purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that property purchasers arrange a building survey. A wide range of defects have a negative impact on a property, for example roof damage or poor ventilation, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

How is Trimdon contaminated land checked when purchasing?

A.

A broad range of contaminants could impact Trimdon property, such as sand or clay quarries or local historic industrial processes. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

We are intending to buy in Trimdon. Do we need 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are a standard pack of queries requested by the conveyancing lawyer with local and national authorities, and cover solely facets affecting the legal title.

Q.

I am intending to buy a barn conversion in Durham St Oswald. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer could advise that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is found. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Do your house conveyancing solicitors do the conveyancing of property auction properties in Trimdon?

A.

We are accustomed to working with sellers at auction. Very often difficult to value lots are sold in auctions which demand greater exploration prior to exchange. Solicitors therefore recommend that bidders formally appoint a fast lawyer well before the auction day to allow enough time for a thorough investigation of the sellers legal pack. Subsequently, immediately after the date of the auction a lawyer has to be fully prepared to carry out the auction conveyancing process inside 28 days after exchange as required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Trimdon?

A.

Trimdon is located in Durham County Council, County Hall, Durham, DH1 5UL, Call: 0300 123 7070

Q.

What will our searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches in Trimdon will vary somewhat. These searches are disbursements, and are charged 'at cost'.
