I am trying to find a cheap Ashton In Makerfield solicitor for purchasing a property. What should I check?


This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Do I need a building surveyor to review this property purchase?


It is advised that you book a property surveyor. There are many defects that can negatively affect a property. These include poor ventilation or rotten roof timbers, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.


Our lender is Irish Permanent - what will we need to check?


Buyers should know that some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For home buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal will act for all large lenders.


Environmental searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but with recent flooding for instance the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they sufficient to determine enough about the Ashton In Makerfield area flood risk?

Property environmental searches applied for by the property lawyer in Ashton In Makerfield should include a far more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still concerned it may be worth trying to contact a local resident.


We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how do we guarantee a fast conveyancing transaction?


Crucial to buying faster is to instruct a experienced solicitor. Consider the following when selecting:

  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • How soon will they order searches?


Do we need to be concerned about gazumping?


Gazumping describes when a house seller agrees to a purchaser's offer and later rejects it. Instead, they then go for a higher offer. It could occur weeks into a purchase. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Consider instructing your solicitor early to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.


Do you advise that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing a property near land owned by the church in Ashton In Makerfield.


The Law Lords decision in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Several sources are used to determine liability in Ashton In Makerfield, including county histories.


Do we need to be worried about fixtures and fittings?


In general, fixtures are permanently fixed to the property and cannot be easily removed, whereas fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this makes resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.
