Read about the Garston area ;

Liverpool John Lennon Airport is 2 miles from Garston. Howarden Airport is 13 miles and Eccles Airport is 23 miles away. Liverpool South Parkway station is approximately 1 mile from Garston.

Sir Alfred Jones Memorial Liverpool is the most convenient hospital.


There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are looking for fixed rate Garston conveyancing.


Numerous firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions. Additional fees should be reasonable. They be applicable if your solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.


Do I need a local property surveyor to review our property purchase?


It is strongly recommended that most purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor to carry out a survey when you intend to buy in Garston. There are a range of defects that can negatively affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work. These can include wet rot.


Will I need to get a chancel search? I am buying a Garston property on the same road as land owned by the church.


Property owners near to nearby church property may be required to cover the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Garston church lands include St Michael.


What type of exploration in respect to the risk and history of a flood in Merseyside will a Garston property lawyer examine?


An important step in the conveyancing protocol involves your conveyancing lawyer making an application for environmental searches that give you certain details about the potential Garston flood risk.


I would like to know which Garston lenders you can work with. Whose panels are you on?


Most lenders in Garston are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Liverpool Mortgage Solutions Ltd, 88/86/St. Marys Road, Garston, Liverpool, L19 2JG.


Flood searches are all well and good but in light of recent flooding for example the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they still appropriate to determine enough about the ever changing Garston future flood risk?


Property conveyancing searches handled by a Garston conveyancer should also include a far more detailed search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still apprehensive you could attempt to get in touch with a next door neighbour.


Which local authority is responsible for Garston?


Garston is located in Liverpool City Council, Municipal Buildings, Dale St, Liverpool, L2 2DH, Tel: 01512 333 000


If I plan to purchase in the parish of Whalley, should we get a chancel search?


A property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Garston's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Whalley, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
