Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Atherton?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Atherton, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Do we need to employ the solicitor used by our estate agent?

A.

An agent will be able to pressure a law firm they refer a lot of work to, and can therefore to reduce delays in the conveyancing process. These referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

In a few months we are going to be finally moving out of our semi detached residence near Atherton to a new home in Ashton Under Lyne what is the right point to select a house removal firm?

A.

Most lawyers tend to recommend that home vendors wait arranging removals until formal exchange of contracts because usually a home moving date will not have been confirmed.

Frequently house removals firms charge a cancellation charge . Local home mover companies include Kitsons Removals, 8 Oak Tree Cl, Atherton, Manchester, M46 0RP on 01942 901954 or Montford Removals Ltd, Constance House/Linstock Way, Atherton, Manchester, M46 0RS Phone: 0800 026 0474.

Q.

How do you work out Stamp Duty Land Tax rates and what amount should we budget for a £1195000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax that will be due is calculated with reference to the house or flat's price. It is £59750 on a £1195000 property.

Q.

What sort of local environmental searches concerning the risk of local flooding in the Greater Manchester area will the conveyancing solicitor in Atherton carry out?

A.

An important step in the legal due diligence process of buying a property involves a conveyancer applying for conveyancing searches that offer you specific information regarding Atherton flooding.

Q.

What causes the purchase conveyancing process to take so long?

A.

Conveyancing may be delayed, Homeward Legal, however, do our best to minimise their cost whenever possible by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Reasons for delay can include a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

What particular searches should the conveyancing solicitor in Atherton carry out for a Atherton house?

A.

The normal conveyancing procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environmental and Coal Mining (Con29M) and, depending on certain criteria, particular searches, like HS2 report.
