Q.

How do we get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Numerous firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are often hiding in small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs included in the terms should be reasonable and be applicable solely where your lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do I need a chancel search? We are buying a Bardsley residence next to a parson's close.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Bardsley property likely to be affected. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Bardsley properties is likely to exist. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Church of England properties in the local area include Holy Trinity and Woodhouses Mission Church.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Bardsley?

A.

Bardsley is located in Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council, Civic Centre, West Street, Oldham, Lancashire, OL1 1UG, Tel: 0161 770 3000

Q.

What environmental concerns will affect land in Bardsley, and should they be a concern?

A.

Property will be contaminated by a range of natural causes, such as pollution incidents. An environmental search will offer more detail.

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately added roof antenna on the house in Bardsley which I think might possibly defy nearby conservation area criteria

A.

The property lawyer will always check whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the essential consents. In the event that no necessary permissions be in evidence, the solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative e.g. buying an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective permission from Oldham local authority.

Q.

Which elements assist with organising a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Crucial to a faster move is to use a proactive conveyancer. There are, however, numerous tasks you, as the purchaser, could do, including, getting your mortgage offer in place, answering any queries raised by your conveyancer as soon as possible and keeping in regular contact with your conveyancer.

Q.

How much can conveyancing searches cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the searches chosen. Informative but less frequently ordered extra searches include a search of the Index Map.

Q.

Do I need to make use of a conveyancing suggested by my estate agent?

A.

An agent will push a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
