Q.

Are additional fees applied? We need to find discount conveyancing in Wallsend.

A.

Many online and high street firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any costs included in terms of engagement should be fair. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

The owner has fitted unfitting artificial stone cladding to the maisonette which I think might possibly overstep the St Peters conservation area criteria.

A.

A property solicitor will make enquiries to find out whether your new home is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have required permissions from the local authority. If no necessary permissions be available, the solicitor will advise you of the best alternative e.g. getting covered by an indemnity policy or obtaining retrospective permission from South Tyneside council.

Q.

When should you arrange a conveyancing solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as there are several tasks which may begin straight away. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.

Q.

Is it advisable that we get searches for chancel liability? We are buying by an ecclesiastical parish in Wallsend.

A.

Owners of property proximate to local churches must subsidise repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Church lands in the area where a chancel search may be necessary include Church of the Good Shepherd, St John the Evangelist, St Luke and St Peter.

Q.

How much can conveyancing searches cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, a client will be expected to pay at most £249 for conveyancing searches. Searches are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Of main Wallsend lenders, which firms are on your panel?

A.

Of lenders with local offices proximate to Wallsend, we with the bulk of them. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Leeds Building Society, Mercantile Ho/Silverlink, Wallsend, NE28 9NY, Access Mortgage Solutions Ltd, Suite 5 Salisbury House/5 Buddle Street, Wallsend, NE28 6EH, and Wallsend Mortgage Advice Centre, 226 High St East, Wallsend, NE28 7RX.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Wallsend?

A.

Regardless of the Wallsend parish in which you are buying, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Although some church councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, it is not possible to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not be so in future. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without a Wallsend conveyancing solicitor is becoming possible as a buyer of a maisonette. However, would it be insensible ?

A.

Legally speaking there are absolutely no arguments why a buyer cannot look after the conveyancing on your own.

That said, a conveyancer handles a large number of activities e.g. approving enquiries on searches and communicating with managing agents many of which need experience. Additionally firms and their solicitors always have appropriate cover that protects you from any professional omissions.
