Q.

I am trying to find a cheap Ashton In Makerfield solicitor for purchasing a property. What should I check?

A.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Unscrupulous firms may attempt to pass off additional costs as disbursements. It may not be obvious if a cost is a fee or disbursement, and whether it should be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the solicitor passes on the charge at cost.

Q.

Do you advise that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing a property near land owned by the church in Ashton In Makerfield.

The Law Lords decision in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Several sources are used to determine liability in Ashton In Makerfield, including county histories.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Ashton In Makerfield identified?

A.

Property in Ashton In Makerfield may be contaminated by a wide range of natural causes, such as hazardous substances in the ground or nearby waste management facilities. An environmental search will give more information. Contamination in Ashton In Makerfield can be caused by local waste sites, such as Landgate Farm, Bryn Gates Lane, Lancashire, WN4 0EJ.

Q.

Which mortgage lender panels in Ashton In Makerfield are you on?

A.

Homeward Legal can work with all the major lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Ashton In Makerfield, such as Ashton Solutions, 13A Gerard St, Ashton-In-Makerfield, Wigan, WN4 9AG.

Q.

Our lender is Irish Permanent - what will we need to check?

A.

Buyers should know that some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For home buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal will act for all large lenders.

Q.

I plan to buy a property in Ashton In Makerfield. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Ashton In Makerfield or elsewhere in the county, the property solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) 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.

We are buying a £1137000 residential property in Ashton In Makerfield. How is stamp duty rates calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you pay will depend on several factors, including the purchase price. On a £1137000 home, stamp duty will be £56850.
