A.

Both high-street and online solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges can inflate your final bill. Any extra charges found in the terms ought to be clearly defined. They only be applied if the conveyancer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Can strontium (Sr) contaminate Barnoldswick top-soil?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Barnoldswick, risk levels are usually low. Metal contamination of soil in Barnoldswick is more likely to occur near former industrial sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like solvents and perchlorate, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

If we are purchasing in the parish of Lancaster St John, will we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out.
