Buying a home in Blackpool? Relevant regional public service facts -

Blackpool is about 3m of Junction 4 Eastbound of the M55.

Blackpool's closest airport is Blackpool International Airport (3 miles). Walney Aerodrome Airport is 24 miles away. Blackpool's nearest train station is Blackpool North.

Q.

Blackpool area info

A.

The closest hospital for Blackpool is Blackpool, Devonshire Rd.

Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor for buying a leasehold house?

A.

Various property lawyers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional costs included in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. They come into force only if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should be included on your quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Could the charges for our conveyancing for our sale in Blackpool hide any additional costs?

A.

No. We never hide any hidden costs. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing a building in Blackpool. How do I check if the building is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas conserve areas of historical merit. You may wish to contact the council if you have specific questions, but your lawyer will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

Could Blackpool top-soil be contaminated by selenium?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Also considering issues such as herbicides, contaminants affecting Blackpool property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk carry out the conveyancing for property auction properties in Blackpool?

A.

Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with sellers at auction. Our highly qualified property solicitors have acted for numerous bidders at local auctions, for example Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Experienced buyers at auction know to instruct a fast lawyer as quickly as they can so there is time for a full report of the auction pack well before the date of the auction.

Subsequently, immediately after the date of the auction your property conveyancing lawyer is wholly prepared for concluding the legal work in as short a time frame as typically required by the terms if sale.

Q.

Do you advise that I get a chancel search? We are buying a Blackpool property on the same street as a rectory manor.

A.

Owners of property neighbouring a church in the area must fund repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land in Blackpool must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church lands in this area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Mark, Layton, St Paul, North Shore, St Stephen On-The-Cliffs and St Mary, Squires Gate.

Q.

I am going to a property auction and will need to arrange fast conveyancing, what can we do to accelerate the conveyancing process?

A.

Firstly, fast Blackpool conveyancing is crucial to is to employing a communicative lawyer. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

Are costs for obtaining copies of planning permission fees or disbursements?

A.

A quote will itemise fees and disbursements, clearly stating which is which. These costs are fees not disbursements. It should be included in your quote.
