I am planning on buying a house in a conservation area in Burscough. How does one find more data in respect of the state of upkeep?

English Heritage have conducted a survey and created records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.

What type of checks into the risk of a flood to properties in Lancashire will a Burscough property lawyer be able to do?

The solicitor conducts conveyancing searches that will include Burscough flood risk area data.


Property conveyancing searches are assessed from archived data and when you consider recent weather changes e g the flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they comfort enough to check sufficient information about the Burscough flood risk area?


Flood searches conducted by the Burscough lawyer should include a far more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are nervous you might try to speak to a next door neighbour.


Might the fees for our conveyancing for our sale in Burscough take into account any hidden costs?


It is unfortunate that buyer should read the terms of their conveyancing quote careful to identify any hidden fees. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden costs. Our conveyancing quotes offer an honest and accurate fee the legal costs for your move.


At what point do you need to find a solicitor to handle our sale?


With few exceptions, the sooner the better. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing solicitor for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).


Is it advisable that we get searches for chancel liability? We are purchasing on the same street as a 1600s glebe in Burscough.


Where land in Burscough was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards repairs to a church in the area. Parochial Church Councils in Burscough must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your solicitor can provide more details. Burscough church properties include St John's.
