I am looking for a cheap Hazel Grove solicitor for buying a flat. What should we check?


Many law firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair. They be applied only where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


I am buying in Hazel Grove with Yorkshire Building Society - is there anything we need to know?


A small number of lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for purchasers if their lawyer cannot act for the lender. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of many lenders.


I am on a deadline and would like ensure fast conveyancing, what should we ensure to speed up the transaction?


Contacting a experienced solicitor is the key to buying faster. Consider the following:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?


Do I need to use the property lawyer suggested by the agent?


It is not uncommon for agents to endorse a law firm. However, if they are paid a referral fee, there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.


What can our searches be?


The cost of conveyancing searches somewhat varies. Conveyancing searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and will be charged at cost.


Is a home buyers survey advisable if we are purchasing a house?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors suggest that all purchasers in Hazel Grove book a surveyor to carry out a survey when you intend to buy in Hazel Grove. Buyers should be aware that there are many defects that have a negative impact on a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address. These include cracks in walls and cracked roof tiles.


How can I go about check if the Hazel Grove conservation area is at risk?


Following a campaign, English Heritage have created a list of the condition of conservation areas along with the trend of the area. Local Hazel Grove conservation areas are set up by Cheshire East who administer the state of the area including things like poorly maintained roads, rear extensions and whether trees can be cut down.


Environmental searches are estimated from archived data and when you factor in recent weather changes for example the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they sufficient to see sufficient information about the risk of flooding in Hazel Grove?


A diligent property solicitor in Hazel Grove will consider apply for informative flood searches (Landmark database search) if the standard conveyancing searches determine a significant risk Hazel Grove flood risk.

It may be sensible to contact a neighbour to gain further peace of mind.
