A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees may be added into the small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable and come into force only if your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Will you need a chancel search? I am buying a house in Ashton.

A.

Owners of property near to nearby church property may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Churches in the local area include St John the Baptist and St Michael & All Angels.

Q.

We are buying on a Ashton brownfield land. Is the topsoil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like arsenic (As)?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Ashton, but where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Also considering issues such as food-processing waste and water contaminants such as pesticides, contaminants affecting Ashton property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

In about four weeks we are anticipating to be moving out of our period property in Ashton to our next flat in St George , at what stage to instruct a home removal firm?

Most property lawyers will advocate that buyers and sellers wait organising removals until contracts have exchanged because a definitive home moving date will not have been accepted by both parties. Many house removals companies charge a rearrangement charge .
