Q.

Cheshire attractions and landmarks

A.

Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing in Cheshire?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Cheshire?

  • Cheshire intersects with the following local authorities: Cheshire East Council, Westfields, Middlewich Road, Sandbach, Cheshire, CW11 1HZ, Tel: 0300 123 55 00

  • High Peak Borough Council, Buxton Town Hall, Market Place, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 6EL, Tel: 01298 284 000
  • Manchester City Council, Town Hall, Albert Square, Manchester, M60 2LA, Tel: 0161 234 5000

  • Q.

    What are 'fixtures and fittings'?

    A.

    Commonly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as external light fixtures to the property and fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.

    Q.

    Should we get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Overchurch, near Cheshire?

    A.

    Regardless of the Cheshire parish in which you are buying, the conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. Although some parish councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be free from liability, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

    Q.

    Which specific search enquiries should my conveyancer in Cheshire do for a Cheshire house?

    A.

    The customary legal procedure is to obtain Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search, Environmental and Cheshire Brine Search (Coal Authority) as well as any less common searches, like a HS2 report.

    Q.

    How can I find if any of the conservation areas in Cheshire are at risk?

    A.

    The estimation of the state of Cheshires conservation areas is published by English Heritage, and the following data is currently viewable at the English Heritage website: Northwich Town Centre determined to be very bad with medium vulnerability and condition improving, Saughall determined to be very bad with low vulnerability and deteriorating, Picton determined to be very bad with medium vulnerability and deteriorating, Ince determined to be fair with high vulnerability and deteriorating.

    Q.

    Following recent news about the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am worried that environmental searches aren't detailed enough?

    A.

    Flood searches handled by the Cheshire property solicitor will also include the far more thorough search (Landmark) if required.

    If you are apprehensive consider contacting a local resident.

    Q.

    For a fast exchange and completion to buy a £375,000 home, what do we need to guarantee?

    A.

    Contacting a proactive property lawyer is essential to a fast transaction. There are, however, several things you as the purchaser can do, including, confirming your mortgage offer, answering any queries raised by your property lawyer as soon as possible and keeping in regular contact with the property lawyer.
