The nearest train station to Bootle is Bootle Oriel Road, about a mile away and the nearest airport to Bootle is Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Blackpool International Airport is 24 miles and Howarden Airport is 19 miles away.

Q.

Local points of interest in Bootle

A.

Waterloo Christ Church Old Church Churches Conservation Trust and Liverpool Walker Art Gallery are near to Bootle.

The most convenient hospital for Bootle is Walton Liverpool.

Q.

Are additional fees applied? We are trying to find low cost conveyancing.

A.

This matter catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing. However additional costs will be included in the terms and conditions. Any extra charges listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair and clearly defined. They be applicable if the solicitor must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Why does conveyancing for a purchase take months to complete? Should we be worried?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a home will sometimes take more time than budgeted even in ideal circumstances. Some delays are out of the solicitors' hands, we, however, seek to reduce the effect of these delays whenever it is feasible by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

Can you advise how we hold off paying for stamp duty on our Bootle property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) must be paid on residential property sold for over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction. Such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will then be due.

Q.

My wife and I are interested in purchasing a property in Bootle. How can we verify that the property is in a conservation area?

A.

There are a range of conservation areas in or near Bootle. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Property lawyers in Bootle get a number of searches when they are instructed by a home purchaser, which particular ones?

A.

If buying and getting a mortgage, your lender expects at least specific searches, including the following for properties in Bootle: Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search,, and possibly specific local searches, like a Bankruptcy Search (K16).

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors set up to move quickly on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Bootle?

A.

The legal team work with auctioneers throughout Merseyside and commonly work for sellers at auction. Solicitors invariably suggest buyers to formally appoint an experienced lawyer well in advance of the property auction to allow for a detailed investigation.

Subsequently, following the property auction your now prepared lawyer is absolutely ready for finishing the conveyancing in a as tight time frame as typically required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Do we need a home buyers survey for our Bootle house purchase?

A.

It is recommended that most purchasers book a surveyor to undertake a survey when you plan to buy in Bootle. Buyers should be aware that there are many concerns that have a negative impact on a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, such as cavity wall tie failure and blocked drains.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately added unsightly dormer windows to the maisonette in Bootle which I think may violate nearby conservation area guidelines

A.

Your instructed lawyer should verify if the property is within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the essential permission from the Sefton authority. In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your Bootle conveyancing solicitor will recommend all options, which include getting from Sefton local authority or seeking cover from an indemnity policy.
