How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Stretford for a £744,000 residence?


Various solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


How much is the council tax on a period converted building in Stretford?


As a rule the title report will cover the Manchester council tax band. The latest tax charges for properties in Stretford are published at the Manchester local authority site. Currently, 26/08/2012, rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £885.00

Is soil in Stretford contaminated by cobalt (Co)?


Stretford industrial or agricultural can cause soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including food-processing waste.


Do we need to plan for gazumping?


The practice of rejecting an offer which has been accepted after a second buyer has made a better offer is called gazumping. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of gazumping. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can is a key first step to reducing this risk.


Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Stretford?


A conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Stretford, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


I have taken out a quote from you. Are there any extra charges?


Unfortunately, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. Our solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden fees. Your quote is an single, accurate fee.


Do your panel of solicitors look after auction conveyancing in Stretford?


Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Stretford frequently act for auction buyers and sellers. We strongly advise auction buyers to choose a lawyer before the date of the auction to allow for a full report of the auction legal papers. Subsequently, immediately after the property auction, your lawyer should be ready for get through the legal process in less than 28 days, a normal requirement of terms of sale.


How many weeks may the conveyancing process need, on average? If it matters, we are purchasing a property in Stretford.


On average, the number of weeks taken to transfer property may vary. This is dependent on a range of factors including situations where another party does not quickly respond an enquiry. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, we however drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.
