I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. How do I get a quote?


Numerous firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. The quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Additional costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined.


Are there any disadvantaged areas in Manchester?


Disadvantaged areas are identified by council ward. Disadvantaged areas in and around Manchester include Ardwick, Baguley, Charlestown, Cheetham, Burnage, Crumpsall, Fallowfield, Old Moat, Sharston, Gorton North, Hulme, Moss Side, Levenshulme, Longsight, Woodhouse Park, Harpurhey, Moston, Bradford, Central, Rusholme, Brooklands, Whalley Range, Northenden, Barlow Moor, Benchill, Beswick and Clayton, Blackley, Gorton South, Lightbowne and Newton Heath. Update: As of the 2013/14 tax year, stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas is no longer available.


When in the process do we need to instruct a solicitor in Manchester?

Generally, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. The legal work can then commence immediately. Instructing a solicitor to handle your Manchester conveyancing early for a sale allows documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.


We are using a lender in Greater Manchester, and need to know which Manchester lenders your solicitors work with. Whose panels are you on?


The Homeward Legal group have solicitors who have experience working with all the major lenders providing financing to purchasers. Local lenders and mortgage specialists include Allied Irish Bank (GB), Hardman St, Manchester, M3 3PL, Aviva, Commercial Union House/2-10 Albert Sq, Manchester, M60 8AD, and Ballard Evans, Lowry House/17 Marble St, Manchester, M2 3AW.


How much time can be planned for the conveyancing process take in Manchester?


For most residential property, the time required to transfer a property varies. This is based on a broad set of factors. These may include if the property being bought or sold is leasehold. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, whereas Homeward Legal aim for faster conveyancing, driving the transaction to complete within 6 to 8 weeks.


Why could Manchester conveyancing require weeks?


The conveyancing process can be lengthy. We know how distracting such delays can be and aim to reduce their effect wherever possible. Reasons for delay include problems with arranging a mortgage.


If I plan to buy near Manchester, in the parish of Manchester, do we need a chancel search?


Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Manchester, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


May our conveyancing charges incorporate any extra costs?


Regrettably, it is common practice for some firms to hide fees in small print. We never hide any extra, hidden charges. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The final bill you receive may be much more.
