Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? I am trying to find discount conveyancing.


The confusion over this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often extra costs can inflate the final bill.


How many lenders in Chorley do you work with?


Most lenders in Chorley are on our Chorley solicitors' panel. Chorley lenders and mortgage specialists include Cheshire Building Society, 4-6 Fazakerley St, Chorley, PR7 1BG, Money Matters, 1 Mayfield Rd, Chorley, PR6 0DG, and Churchside Financial Planning, Chestnut House/46 Halliwell St, Chorley, PR7 2AL.


Handling the legal work without a Chorley property lawyer appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a house , however would it be an unrealistic idea ?


There are no reasons why a seller cant adopt a DIY approach and embark on the your own conveyancing without the help of Chorley conveyancing solicitor. That said, a solicitor juggles a significant

number of roles from e.g. chasing completion statements or ensuring the seller is the rightful owner many of which require training.

Critically amateur lawyers do not have the appropriate professional indemnity insurance which qualified solicitors practices are obliged to carry.


How can the conveyancing solicitor in Chorley report back on the potential risk of local flooding around Chorley for a Sixties property we intend to buy?


An experienced conveyancing lawyer applies for official property conveyancing searches, which include Chorley historical flood risk information. In addition the Chorley solicitor might possibly advise a more detailed local Chorley area flood search.

There are over 1,900 disadvantaged areas throughout the country. Disadvantaged areas around Chorley currently include Chorley East. Update: As of the 2013/14 tax year, stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas is no longer available.


What can a Chorley property lawyer recommend if the property is situated in a Chorley conservation area which has unsuitable roof aerials fitted to it?


Chorley local authority enquiries conducted by your solicitor during the conveyancing process should check the existence of suitable permission for any development to the building.


Which local authority is responsible for Chorley?


Chorley is located in Chorley Borough Council, Town Hall, Market Street, Chorley, Lancs PR7 1DP, Tel: 01257 515 151


Which parts of Chorley are covered by a conservation area?


Areas deemed to be of architectural merit, such as picturesque villages, will be designated as conservation areas. Living in a conservation area can mean an increase in local property values, but the restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. A property solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.
