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.

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.

Which local authority looks after Westhoughton?

A.

Westhoughton is located in Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council, Town Hall, Victoria Square, Bolton, Lancashire, BL1 1RU, phone: 01204 333 333

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.

Please recommend how to get out of paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme is not advised when buying in Westhoughton. These schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable. There have been several official schemes, however, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

We are going to buy a property, and have a quote from you. May we be billed any hidden costs?

A.

No. We will never charge any hidden charges under any circumstances. Our quotes offer an honest and accurate price the legal expenses for your transaction.

Q.

If I am intending to buy near Westhoughton, in the parish of Westhoughton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Westhoughton or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Westhoughton's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How much will my conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches can vary, subject to which searches have been ordered. Searches are charged 'at cost'.
