There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need a discount conveyancing estimate in Urmston.


Various firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs will be included in the small print that buyers and sellers often do not check. Additional costs included in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


What is the council tax on a Sixties converted property in Urmston?


Commonly, the conveyancer's title report should include the relevant Trafford council tax band. The latest council tax rates for homes in Urmston are set out in detail at the Trafford local authority website. On, 06/07/2012, the rates are:

  • Band A - £869.00

Are there any conservation areas in Urmston?

These areas preserve areas designated as being of architectural merit. The local council will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.


We are going to buy a converted investment property in a conservation area. Where does one get more details in relation to the standard of upkeep of the conservation area?


English Heritage now maintain information about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as the risk of deterioration or improvement.

Conservation areas in Urmston are created by the local authority (Trafford) who preside over conservation area concerns from private spaces to the obstruction of ugly parking meters.


For a lender, we have chosen Leeds Building Society - what will we need to consider?


Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act for most lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


Is a managing agent fee a disbursement or a fee?


It may not be obvious whether an item on your quote is a fee or disbursement. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.


When in the conveyancing process should we instruct a conveyancer?


Simply, the sooner the better, as there are a number of tasks that can begin very early in the process. A number of sources suggest holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.


How is contaminated land in Urmston investigated?


Property is contaminated by several factors caused by man and by nature, such as potentially contaminative use of nearby land. An environmental search will offer more detail.
