There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need to find a discount conveyancing estimate in Merseyside.


Both high-street and online law firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional fees will be included in the small print. Extra fees found in terms of engagement should be reasonable. They only apply in cases where your lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, 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.


As a consequence of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are questioning if conveyancing searches (environmental) aren't sufficient?


Property environmental searches conducted by a Merseyside conveyancer should also include the more in depth flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you remain still concerned you could try to approach a neighbour.


I am buying a £652000, what will be worked out for stamp duty rates?


The Stamp Duty payable is dependent on the value of the home. It is £26080 on a £652000 residential property in Merseyside.*

*Correct as of March 2013


My partner and I are purchasing a building in Merseyside. Are there many conservation areas in the area?


Conservation areas specify regions of historical or architectural value. Prescot Town Centre, Albert Dock and Canning Street are among the conservation areas in Merseyside. These restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities, but the benefits will include a more attractive neighbourhood. Your property solicitor will offer more information.

Is contaminated land an issue for most houses in Merseyside?


A range of contaminants could lessen the value of land, like sand or gravel pits. An environmental search should offer more information.


May the property legal fees take into account any hidden costs?


Regrettably, sellers need to be watchful for extra costs hidden in a quote's terms and conditions. We do not hide any additional charges.


When do you need to get a conveyancing solicitor to act on our sale?


Whether buying or selling, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as the legal work can begin straight away. Promptly instructing a conveyancing solicitor for your Merseyside transaction for a purchase can mean that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.
