We are looking for a fixed rate conveyancing estimate in West Derby. What are the risks?


Many online and high street property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on any quote for conveyancing in West DerbyThe Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.


How much does our searches cost?


Conveyancing searches ranges in cost. Searches are paid to a third party.


We are buying on a newly development ex-industrial use land. What should we do regarding rubidium (Rb) soil contamination?


There are extensive regulations imposed to manage soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contaminants like pesticides and trichloroethylene.


I plan to purchase a home in Chorley. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

Whichever West Derby parish you are buying in, a solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In older areas of West Derby, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a property where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Chorley, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


The agent has offered the property lawyer which they often use. Must I use this solicitor?


The Aintree agent will often refer a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.


Our lender is Nationwide - what will we need to know?


A small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal can act for the vast majority of UK mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional conveyancing solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.


What kind of fact finding concerning the uncertain risk of floods in the Merseyside region will the conveyancing solicitor in West Derby check out?


An important component in the legal due diligence procedure of purchasing a property involves your solicitor conducting environmental searches that go in specific information about the West Derby flood risk.


When we are buying in West Derby on the same road as a rectory built in the 1200s, do you need to get a chancel search?


In West Derby, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise maintenance of a local church. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your conveyancing solicitor can provide more details. Church properties in the local area include St Luke.
