No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra charges, and will include all applicable disbursements and fees. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact no more than estimates. As a result, the final bill you receive from them may end up being much more than expected.
Homeward Legal recommend that all buyers order a home-buyer survey if they are intending to buy a property in Bolton. Buyers should be aware that there are many problems that may impact a property, such as cavity wall-tie failure. A home-buyer survey will identify such issues.
Property environmental searches carried out by a conveyancing lawyer on a Bolton property will identify environmental issues for the area. They will also include the more informative flood search if the risk warrants it. If you are still concerned, you could talking to a Bolton resident or contacting a local flooding repair expert like Heightvale, Unit 1, Spa Road Industrial Estate, Spa Road, Bolton, BL1 4SS (Tel: 01204 523772).
Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of solicitor firms on their approved panel, which may result in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers of Bolton properties. Homeward Legal are able to act for all major UK mortgage lenders so that you don’t pay any of their costs.
These searches are a standardised set of enquiries (for example, a gypsum search) which are performed on your behalf by a lawyer. They only deal with the legal aspects of the purchase. Contact Homeward Legal to discuss with our property experts what might be included in the searches.
The conveyancing process will sometimes take more time than planned, even in ideal circumstances. Some causes are out of the solicitor's hands, such as a firm acting for the lender being slow in responding. At Homeward Legal, we endeavour to reduce their impact whenever feasible by continually pushing all parties involved.
A landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of a property (homeowners local to a church building) must fund church repairs. A number of sources are used to identify liability including parish archives. Church of England properties in the area local to Bolton where a chancel search may be appropriate include:
Many contaminants may lessen the desirability of Bolton residences (such as proximity to scrapyards or problems created by historic industrial processes). Your lawyer will order an environmental search as part of the conveyancing process, which should give more clarity.
