Local points of interest in New Brighton

Waterloo Christ Church Old Church Churches Conservation Trust and Liverpool Walker Art Gallery are easily accessible from New Brighton.

The nearest hospital is Victoria Central Wallasey.


Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We are trying to find an affordable New Brighton conveyancing quote.


Both high-street and online solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary buyers and sellers fail to check. Additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair.


We are buying a property where the seller appears to have fitted ill-suited windows to the house in New Brighton which I think may overstep conservation area criteria


Your solicitor is required to confirm if the property is located within a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have the necessary permission.


Bookshops and the web both have an abundance of useful handbooks giving details on doing the legal work yourself. That being the case, do I need to instruct a solicitor in New Brighton for my home move?


Should you desire t do so, you can definitely take care of the legal process without external help from an instructed conveyancer in New Brighton.

All solicitors would suggest that this choice is a very risky route t take as have a go conveyancers are taking risks without the critical indemnity insurance which qualified solicitors practices must obtain.


Are your recommend solicitors set up to complete within 28 days of exchange on the conveyancing of auction properties in New Brighton?


Yes - Our team work closely with auctioneers and regularly get instructed by sellers at auction. It is a smart move to choose a good lawyer as early as possible to allow adequate time for a detailed report of the legal pack before the auction day arrives.

Thereafter, following the property auction date you are the conveyancing lawyer will be fully prepared to rapidly carry out the purchase in less than 4 weeks as usually required by the standard auction conditions.


What is the council tax on a Thirties semi-detached Band C home in New Brighton?


Your appropriate band will, more often than not, be detailed within the report on title along with the local council. The latest tax charges for homes in New Brighton are set out online at the Wirral local authority site. At the time of writing on 07 June 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £981.00
  • Band B - £1,144.00
  • Band C - £1,308.00

  • Band E - £1,798.00
  • Band F - £2,125.00
  • Band G - £2,452.00
  • Band H - £2,942.00


Is a house survey a good idea when we are purchasing any property?


We firmly suggest that purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor to perform a survey when you plan to buy in New Brighton. Numerous concerns can affect a property. These can include failed double glazing and wet rot.


We are intending to buy a property. Is it that necessary that conveyancing searches are done?


Conveyancing searches are standard queries ordered by the purchaser's conveyancing solicitor, for example a chancel liability search. Purchasers need to be aware that, these searches only deal with issues with the property's title.


Conveyancing searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but with current events such as the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they still appropriate to determine sufficient information about the New Brighton flood risk area?


Flood risk searches applied for by the New Brighton solicitor should also include the far more in depth Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still concerned you could consult one of your future neighbours.
