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.

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.

Should I get a chancel search? We are purchasing on the same street as a 14th Century 'parson's close' in Castleton.

A.

Where land in Castleton was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of a church in the area. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including parish archives. Churches in Castleton which may give rise to chancel liability include St Edmund, St Martin, St Mary Magdalene and St Michael & St George.

Q.

How many lenders in Castleton do you work with?

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.

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 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.

We have found a growing number guidebooks about how to do DIY conveyancing e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property . That being the case, do I have to use conveyancing solicitor in Castleton for my home move?

A.

It is possible to look after the your own conveyancing on your own. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor in Castleton takes care of a large number of exercises e.g. chasing replies to enquiries and identifying conservation area breaches which need experience.

Nonetheless solicitors are required by the SRA to have the appropriate indemnity insurance to safeguard you from any negligence on the part of the solicitor.
