Q.

I need a cheap solicitor to buy a new build home. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Many firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We would prefer to complete on the legal work on a leasehold apartment asap, are you fast home moving solicitors in Westhoughton ?

A.

Honestly, some house buying legal firms are just inactive which adds huge uncertainty the process of buying or selling a house.

We only allocate you to lawyers which will communicate through every part of the property chain .

Also our carefully chosen panel of property lawyers are actually chosen because they use advanced practice management and technology systems to push through your house move in the shortest time.

Q.

Which specific search enquiries will a conveyancing solicitor in Westhoughton get on a Westhoughton building?

A.

The standard legal procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environment Search and Coal Mining (Con29M) and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches such as Development reports.

Q.

If we are buying a Westhoughton house on the same road as a 14th Century 'parson's close', do I need to get a chancel liability search?

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Westhoughton which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for upkeep of nearby church property. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Westhoughton church properties include St Bartholomew, St George's (LEP) and St Thomas.

Q.

The owner looks to have fitted satellite dishes on the maisonette in Westhoughton which I think might break nearby conservation area guidelines

A.

A property solicitor will always find out whether the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the appropriate consent from the Bolton authority. In the absence of any the necessary permissions the solicitor will advise you of all options, which include getting from Bolton local authority or seeking cover from an indemnity policy.

Q.

Having read about the flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am concerned that conveyancing and environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Flood searches carried out by a Westhoughton conveyancer will also include the far more detailed search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are still concerned it may be worth trying to speak to a next door neighbour.

Q.

I am buying a £334000. How is SDLT assessed?

A.

SDLT will depend on the value of the house or flat. Stamp duty will be £10020 on a £334000 home.

Q.

Will your Westhoughton conveyancing solicitor apply for official or personal searches on my home purchase?

A.

The conveyancer will brief you about the ideal type of search, depending on factors like local authority turnaround times. For personal searches, your property solicitor might perhaps look for a local search company like Local Authority Search Network Ltd, Direct House, 87 Church Street, Westhoughton, Bolton, BL5 3RZ Tel: 01942 818100 Fax: 01942 810900
