Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We are looking for fixed rate conveyancing.


Confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. A conveyancing quote should list applicable disbursements. Extra fees which are listed in the terms needs to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


Will your conveyancing solicitor inGreater Manchester obtain personal or official searches on my home purchase?


Your conveyancer will make a recommendation regarding the ideal route, depending on issues like mortgage lender requirements. If personal searches are used a conveyancing solicitor might perhaps look for a search agent e.g EASI-HIP Ltd t/a Property Solutions Northwest (Manchester), 10 Roseneath Road, Urmston, Manchester, M41 5AU Tel: 0161 747 2151 Fax: 0161 747 2151


For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £703k property, what can we do to speed up the conveyancing process?


The key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a proactive solicitor. There are a number of tasks you, as the buyer, can do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • contacting your solicitor regularly
  • promptly completing and return any forms
  • organising your finances


What are property searches in regard to?


These searches are a set of enquiries ordered by your conveyancing solicitor with local and national authorities, which may include an environmental search. Conveyancing searches are very informative, but only deal with the legal condition of the property's title.


I must to exchange contracts on the sale of a maisonette very quickly - are you fast property lawyers in Greater Manchester ?

Having implemented leading edge information technology and integrated systems .

We always allocate you a regulated solicitor who will communicate with the complete buyer and seller property chain like mortgage lenders, for a quick move.


Is it advisable to get a chancel search if we are buying on the same street as rectory grounds in Greater Manchester?


Owners of property in Greater Manchester may be subject to chancel repair liability. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your solicitor can provide more details.


We are purchasing a house in Greater Manchester. Is a chancel search necessary?


The solicitor may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish in which the home being purchased is located. In older areas of Greater Manchester, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


How long should I expect it to take my conveyancer to exchange all of the conveyancing formalities on a detached house?


The legal process can take anywhere from around a month and 3 months, contingent on various things e.g. the speed of the vendor's property solicitor, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries.
