Blackpool International Airport is 9 miles from Southport. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is 23 miles and away. Southport's closest station is Southport.

Southport, Southport & Formby General is the most convenient hospital for Southport.


Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We need fixed rate conveyancing.


Many property lawyers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are often hiding in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Your quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursements).


Can you advise how we circumvent paying for stamp duty?


Homeward Legal do not recommend property buyers undertake any stamp duty mitigation, because these schemes are expensive and often likely to fail.


As a consequence of the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am asking whether flood searches won't be exacting enough?


Property environmental searches carried out by your property lawyer in Southport should include a far more informative search (Landmark) if required.

If you are concerned you can contact a neighbour.


Do we need to get a Homebuyer Report for this house purchase?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly advise that the majority of buyers book a home surveyor to perform a survey if purchasing in Southport. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which affect a property, for example roof damage.


What kind of local environmental searches as respects the uncertain risk of flooding in Merseyside will a property solicitor in Southport be able to conduct for a Fifties property I am wanting to buy?


A conveyancer conducts formal conveyancing and environmental searches, which include Southport flood risk area data. Depending on the results, the solicitor in Southport could suggest a more in-depth local Southport area flood risk search.


If I am intending to purchase in the parish of Standish, should we get a chancel search?


Regardless of the Southport parish in which you are purchasing, the property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Southport, chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a house where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


We are using a local lender in Merseyside, and need to know which Southport lenders you can work with. Whose panels are your solicitors on?


Of lenders with local offices nearby Southport, we in conjunction with most. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Southport include Britannia, 20 London St, Southport, PR9 0UE, Harrison Business Finance, 15 Hoghton St, Southport, PR9 0NS, and Southport Investment Bureau, 70 Sandon Rd, Southport, PR8 4QD.


We are buying on a Southport brownfield land. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like chromium (Cr)?


Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Southport, but if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Southport, including local authorities.
