Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £213,000 property? We need a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Tynemouth.

A.

Many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement which unwary homeowners fail to check.

Q.

How do I guard against getting gazumped?

A.

This describes circumstances where an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, selecting instead a second purchaser's offer. The chance of gazumping is present in any transaction. You should instruct your solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England we are wondering whether conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Your Tynemouth solicitor should get conveyancing searches if the environmental searches spots a significant risk.

Sometimes buyers contact a neighbour for that extra peace of mind if you are still worried.

Q.

Handling the legal work without the help of a Tynemouth property solicitor appears to be becoming possible when buying and selling a house. However, would it really be realistic ?

A.

There are no arguments why you shouldn't look after the conveyancing on your own. That said, a conveyancing solicitor in Tynemouth typically handles a long list of actions e.g. raising additional enquiries and checking for any restrictive covenants most of which really need a qualified professional.

In any event however, solicitors firms will take out professional indemnity insurance that protects you in the event of any carelessness made by the lawyer.

Q.

How soon do we need to instruct a solicitor in Tynemouth?

A.

With few exceptions, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. Promptly instructing a solicitor can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

Should I opt for the solicitor named by the local agent?

A.

Agent recommendations are a not uncommon way for home buyers to find a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Is Tynemouth soil possibly contaminated by molybdenum?

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Tynemouth, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. Also considering issues such as perchlorate, contaminants affecting Tynemouth property will be factored into an environmental search.
