Thinking of re-locating to the area? Relevant local public transport and public service facts ;

Commuters are well catered for with Accrington being well placed with very good major road access about 1 mile off the M65 Junction 7 Eastbound.

Accrington Victoria is the neighbouring hospital for Accrington.

Q.

I need fixed rate conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Several property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement. The conveyancing quote should state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

Will the conveyancing costs include any extra charges?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any extra, hidden costs whatsoever.

Q.

Could chromium contaminate land in Accrington?

A.

With this region's industrial history in parts of Accrington, top-soil contamination is difficult to avoid. The local authority for Accrington will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

In relation to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are anxious that property conveyancing searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Conveyancing searches applied for by a Accrington conveyancing solicitor will include the more detailed flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you remain worried you can visit a local resident or local Lancashire flood damage business - try M Metcalfe Building Maintenance, 26 Aspen Fold, Oswaldtwistle, Accrington, BB5 4PH Tel: 01254 387469.

Q.

How can I protect the purchase from gazumping?

A.

Gazumping arises when a owner acknowledges an offer and then dismisses it in favour of a second buyer's offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a danger. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your property solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

Is a deed of postponement passed on at cost?

A.

Comparing conveyancing quotes is not always easy, considering differences in terminology. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

We are purchasing an Edwardian terraced house, is it usually recommended that searches are performed?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a prescribed collection of enquiries performed on behalf of the purchaser. They will not identify structural issues.

Q.

Which zones of Accrington are protected by a conservation area?

A.

There are numerous conservation areas around Accrington. A solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works for affected areas in Accrington.
