Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement that unknowing buyers have not reviewed

Q.

We are buying a 1950s maisonette in a Castleton conservation area, where does one find details in relation to the standard of repair of the area?

A.

Local Castleton conservation areas are set up by Rochdale who are responsible for things like upkeep of paths to the prevention of neon signs. English Heritage, a government body, administer a list of the state of repair of conservation areas.

Q.

In regards to the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am thinking that environmental searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches handled by your Castleton solicitor should include a more informative search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain still nervous you can consult one of your future neighbours.

Q.

How does the conveyancing work require so much time and effort?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally take more time. We work hard to minimise the burden of these delays wherever reasonable by using fast search providers.

Q.

The property seller looks to have installed out of place dormer windows on the building in Castleton which we think might conflict with nearby conservation area rules

A.

Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to verify whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have appropriate permission from the local planning authority. In the event that no necessary permissions be produced the solicitor will advise you of the best alternative e.g. getting an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective approval.

Q.

What type of local checks in respect to the risk of a flood in Greater Manchester will a Castleton property solicitor be able to do?

A.

A crucial part of the conveyancing process involved in buying a home involves your conveyancing lawyer carrying out conveyancing and environmental searches for information in relation to Castleton flood risk. A more flood search (e.g. Landmark) may be advised by the property solicitor in Castleton if the results of the enviro. search suggest flood risk to the property.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Might we be expected to pay any extra fees after the move?

A.

No. Our solicitors never charge any additional fees. Be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Do your panel of solicitors get involved in the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Castleton?

A.

Our recommended conveyancing firms in Castleton do frequently work for auction buyers and sellers. Solicitors tend to suggest buyers to choose their chosen lawyer well before the property auction for a full investigation of the property's legal title. Thereafter, following the date of the auction your selected solicitor is completely ready for completing the conveyancing inside 28 days as usually required .
