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.

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.

We are buying on a recently-developed brownfield site. Seemingly zinc (Zn) soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Extensive measures are taken in all parts of Westhoughton and the UK to identify and resolve soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as hazardous gases.

Q.

In what ways does the Westhoughton conveyancing solicitor advise us on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Westhoughton region?

A.

An essential part of the legal procedure involved in buying a home involves your conveyancing solicitor carrying out environmental searches that provide detail with regard to risk of flooding in Westhoughton. Also as an additional measure the lawyer in Westhoughton may suggest a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) detailed local flood risk search.

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.

I am planning on buying a sixties flat within a conservation area, where can I lay my hands on information on the state of upkeep?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together information about the state of repair of conservation areas along with the exposure to deterioration or improvement. Conservation areas in Westhoughton are specified by Bolton who are responsible for things like public spaces to the inhibition of traffic signs.

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.

Which local authority looks after Westhoughton?
