Conveyancing in Aintree Q & A's

Thinking of moving to the area? Helpful regional transport and services facts and figures ;

Aintree's closest airport is Liverpool John Lennon Airport (10 miles). Blackpool International Airport is 22 miles, Howarden Airport is 22 miles and Eccles Airport is 23 miles away and Aintree's nearest station is Fazakerley at 1 mile s.

Commuters are well served with Aintree being well placed with very convenient road access very close at roughly 1m of the M57 Junction 7 Southbound.

Fazakerley Liverpool is the nearest hospital to Aintree.


Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £641,000 home? I need an affordable conveyancing estimate.


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many property lawyers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Fees should be clearly defined.


Is gazumping common practice in Aintree?


This happens when a home owner accepts the 1st buyer's offer, only to reject it, opting for a better offer. This may happen weeks into a transaction. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. Instructing a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.


Flood risk searches may be conveyancing protocol but with current events e g the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they actually good enough to ascertain sufficient information about the risk of flooding in Aintree?

Environmental searches handled by a Aintree conveyancing solicitor should also include the far more thorough search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still apprehensive you could try to contact a local resident.


Myself and my partner are buying in Aintree. Are there many designated conservation areas in the area?


There are a range of conservation areas in or near Aintree. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. A lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities.


How long does it take the property solicitor to exchange all of the legal work for a flat in a forties building we hope to buy?


The legal process can take anywhere from one month to 12 weeks, which can be affected by various issues e.g. the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or contentious issues that may arise.

Our conveyancing solicitors are notably proactive you moving home as rapidly as we possibly can.


Is obtaining landlord's consent to assignment of lease passed on at cost?


Some solicitors may attempt to pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or not, and whether it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your conveyancing quote.


Is a building survey advisable when we are buying a house?


It is suggested that Aintree buyers book a RICS survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of issues which can negatively affect a property, including subsidence.


What sort of local environmental searches into the potential risk of floods in the Merseyside area will the Aintree property solicitor carry out?


An essential component in the conveyancing protocol of purchasing a property involves a conveyancer making an application for conveyancing and environmental searches that give detail on the subject of the local Aintree flood risk. In addition a conveyancer in Aintree may possibly propose a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed local Aintree area search.
