Q.

How do I find the cheapest Burnley conveyancing quote?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Your quote should state any disbursements. Any costs which are listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable.

Q.

I am going to buy a property in Burnley. Does the property receive stamp duty relief?

A.

Stamp duty relief in Burnley will expire in April 2013. Areas in Burnley are Bank Hall, Trinity, Barclay, Brunshaw, Coal Clough with Deerplay, Daneshouse and Fulledge. Update: As of the 2013/14 tax year, stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas is no longer available.

Q.

It seems that mercury (Hg) soil contamination may be an issue in Burnley. Please advise.

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Burnley. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contamination and herbicides.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Ardwick?

A.

A solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In Burnley's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Could the fees for my conveyancing introduce any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

Homeward Legal do not hide any hidden extra fees to buy or sell a property. Your quote is an single, accurate price the legal costs for your move.

Q.

We really need to complete on the legal process a house in a very limited time, are you fast property lawyers in Burnley ?

A.

Homeward Legal takes a highly speed focused approach to conducting necessary legal work for clients to meet the home sellers needs.

We always allocate you to panel of solicitors that are customer focused and attempt to communicate through the whole of the property chain (sequence of buyers and sellers) .

Also our home moving lawyers are specifically chosen as they use the latest online completion and information technology systems to complete on the property sale swiftly.

Q.

Do I need to employ the solicitor put forward by the agent?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to endorse one or more conveyancing firms. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Does your Burnley property solicitor apply for any property on the Lancashire forties detached townhouse we are buying?

A.

When getting a mortgage the lender mandates at least the following for properties in Burnley: Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search and Environmental, as well as any area-specific searches, like a Index Map Search (SIM).
