What will my solicitor do?

A property lawyer oversees all post-offer aspects of purchasing a house or flat, and guides you through the legal side of the transaction.

They will raise questions for the seller, order property searches, review the contract of sale and handle post-completion tasks, including paying SDLT and HMLR registration.

In addition to standard searches, Newton Aycliffe conveyancing solicitors would also undertake coal mining searches due to the history of the Durham coalfield.

Purchasing a property with a mortgage?

Leasehold property

Almost all flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The legal work for a leasehold flat typically takes longer than freehold property because leasehold transactions involve more work and more technical complexity exists.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an unreachable freeholder to missing leasehold documents.

Completely Moved's expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

How much are conveyancing fees in Newton Aycliffe?

Getting an online quote for conveyancing takes moments - but understanding what is and isn't included in the quote can be challenging.

Conveyancing legal fees

These fees are what your solicitor charges you for the legal work that they complete during your transaction. Your conveyancing solicitor's quote will detail the fees for the legal work, including VAT, that you'll pay when your transaction completes.


Your quote should also list any disbursements, which are costs paid to third parties on your behalf, such as Stamp Duty and Land Registry fees.

Check the T's & C's

Watch out for additional charges, if you are comparing quotes. Some firms include extra costs in their terms and conditions, resulting in a total cost that's much higher than the initial quote.
