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.

Which environmental factors can impact land in Westhoughton. Will they be checked for comprehensively?

A.

Property could be contaminated by several human activities, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a property is affected by Westhoughton contaminants like air pollution. Land Off Lostock Lane, Lostock Lane, Lancashire, BL6 may be one source of local contamination.

Q.

My estate agent has put forward a property solicitor who they generally use. Will it be more cost-effective to use this solicitor?

A.

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you your agent may be able to use their influence to reduce delays in the conveyancing process. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like sofas?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are fixed to the property and fixtures are easier to detach or remove. A fixtures and fittings form can avoid any disputes, stating what is included with the sale.

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.

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

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.

Why could conveyancing seem to be so slow? Should we be worried?

A.

The conveyancing process in Westhoughton may endure stressful setbacks even in the best of circumstances. In some cases, the delays are out of the solicitor's hands, Homeward Legal, however, know the needless stress these can cause and strive to curtail the consequences of these delays by driving the transaction forward. Delays can include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.
