We are trying to find a cheap Rainhill solicitor to own a property. What do we need to consider?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may increase the final bill. Any extra costs found in the small print should be fair and clearly defined and only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Would you recommend that I get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a property in Rainhill.


The result of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must cover the cost of church repairs. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church properties in the local area include St Ann.


How many weeks should conveyancing usually take, according to your estimates? The house being transacted is also in the area.


For the majority of buyers and sellers, the length of time taken to sell or purchase residential property may vary. This is based on numerous considerations such as if there is a mortgage. With Homeward Legal's Rainhill property experts, every sale receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.


Environmental searches are conveyancing protocol but considering recent flooding for example the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they sufficient to find out sufficient information about the evolving Rainhill flood risk?


Conveyancing searches conducted by the conveyancing solicitor in Rainhill should also include a far more rigorous flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still nervous try to contact a close neighbour.


I am buying a Rainhill house with Swansea Building Society - what will I need to know?


Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. We, however, will act for most lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.


When in the process do I need to instruct a conveyancer to handle our transaction?


Whether you are buying or selling in Rainhill, the earlier, the better. Some sources suggest holding off instruction until a chain is completed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.


Doing ones own conveyancing without the help of a Rainhill property lawyer appears to be becoming possible when selling a house but would it really be reckless ?


There is no argument why you cannot carry out the bulk of the legal and technical work without an experienced conveyancing solicitor in Rainhill. That said, a property lawyer takes care of a huge number of exercises ranging from approving completion statements or interpreting planning contraventions which require adequate training. Fundamentally amateur lawyers do not have the appropriate cover which practicing legal firms are under a duty to carry.


Which of the mortgage lender panels in Rainhill are your solicitors members of?


Our solicitors have experience working alongside most lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Rainhill, including Mortgage Choice, 2 Arabis Gardens, St. Helens, WA9 4ZH. The lawyer whom you have instructed will be able to state specific lenders' requirements.
