What will the conveyancing searches in Arnside on average cost?


With Homeward Legal, conveyancing clients are charged at most £249 for the standard search bundle. Conveyancing searches are charged at cost.


Is the SDLT fee a fee or a disbursement?


Some firms attempt to pass off extra costs as necessary disbursements. It may not be obvious if a cost is a disbursement or not, and whether it should be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.


The residence being purchased is on a former industrial site. Can the soil still be contaminated?


Legislation exists to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination and ammonia, will be included in an environmental search.


How long on average will it take the conveyancing solicitor to get through the legal process for the top floor of fifties home?

It can take anywhere between one month and 12 weeks, which can be affected by any number of factors e.g. the efficiency of the seller's conveyancer, or the speed of managing agents. Our property lawyers are very focused on pushing transactions through, completing the process in as short a time as we possibly can.


Environmental searches are compiled from past information and given recent events e g the flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, are they still appropriate to find out enough about the risk of flooding in Arnside?


Property conveyancing searches conducted by a Arnside solicitor should also include the more informative Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you are still concerned you can approach a next door neighbour.
