Several conveyancers purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees may inflate your solicitor's invoice. Extra costs found in the terms should be fair and clearly defined and come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work for you, 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.


Do your solicitors do the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Sefton?


Our recommended conveyancing firms in Sefton commonly get instructed by bidders at auction. Solicitors always encourage buyers to formally appoint a residential solicitor in advance of the auction to allow adequate time for a full investigation.

After the date of the auction, a lawyer is geared up to get through the legal work in under 28 days as conventionally required by the terms of sale.


Having heard about the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, I am questioning if flood risk searches might not be exacting enough?

Conveyancing and environmental searches carried out by the Sefton lawyer should also include a more thorough Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still anxious make enquiries with a local resident.


Myself and my partner are interested in purchasing a residence in Sefton. Can we check that the residence is in a conservation area?


Conservation areas detail local areas defined as being of historical merit. Conservation areas in Sefton include West Birkdale.

Your property solicitor will offer more information.
