How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Walkden?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Extra charges should be reasonable and clear. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.


Flood risk searches are determined from archived data and when you consider climate change e g the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they the ideal way to report enough about the Walkden flood risk area?


A qualified conveyancer in Walkden should carry out in depth environmental searches if the first searches identifies a Walkden flood risk.

Property purchasers sometimes speak to a neighbour for extra confidence.


Is rubidium (Rb) top-soil contamination likely in Walkden?


Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Walkden, but some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. Also considering

issues such as asbestos and water contaminants such as pesticides, contaminants affecting Walkden property will be factored into an environmental search.


I am on a very tight budget , Can doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without a Walkden solicitor possibly save any money?


If you are so inclined have a go you can conceivably take care of the legal process without engaging a trained conveyancing solicitor in Walkden .

Naturally conveyancing professionals would argue that DIY conveyancing would be a hazardous method as DIY lawyers will not be covered by acceptable insurance cover which every solicitors practices are bound to have.


How soon should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor?


With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, instructing as soon as possible is wise. The legal work can then start very early in the process. Some suggest holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.


The estate agent we're using in Clayhall has named a property solicitor who they generally use. Is it a good idea to instruct this solicitor?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will recommend a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.


We have taken out a quote from you. Will there be any additional costs?


Homeward Legal will not charge any additional charges whatsoever.


Do I need a chancel search if I am buying in Walkden?


Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Walkden property likely to be affected. Parochial Church Councils in Walkden must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.
