Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? I am trying to find discount conveyancing.

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often extra costs can inflate the final bill.

Q.

Is manganese soil contamination likely in Chorley?

A.

With the history of industry in parts of Chorley, topsoil contamination is difficult to avoid. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination and organohalides, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Flood searches may be fine but when one considers current events such as the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they actually good enough to verify sufficient information about the Chorley flood risk area?

A.

Your Chorley property solicitor will advise you to include informative conveyancing and environmental searches if the enviro search spots a Chorley flooding risk.

You could always speak to a neighbour to get further assurance or nearby Lancashire flood repair expert, try North West, 57 Cliffe Dr, Whittle-Le-Woods, Chorley, PR6 7HT Tel: 01257 260246.

Q.

How many weeks should it take our assigned conveyancing solicitor to complete the conveyancing work for an apartment in a Regency building in Chorley?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months depending on various issues such as the efficiency of the vendor's property solicitor, or re-negotiations following a survey. Homeward Legal's conveyancers are highly results driven with the goal of completing the process as promptly we can.

Q.

Which parts of Chorley are covered by a conservation area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of architectural merit, such as picturesque villages, will be designated as conservation areas. Living in a conservation area can mean an increase in local property values, but the restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. A property solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

Would you advise that I get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing a Chorley house near a priory built in the 13th Century.

A.

Where land in Chorley was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards upkeep of a local church. Several sources are used to determine liability in Chorley, including parish records. Church of England properties in the area include All Saints, St George, St James and St Laurence.
