Q.

We are looking for low cost conveyancing. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra charges listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be clearly defined and only be applied if your lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Chorlton?

A.

Chorlton is located in Cheshire East Council, Westfields, Middlewich Road, Sandbach, Cheshire, CW11 1HZ, Tel: 0300 123 55 00

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue in Chorlton?

A.

Property in Chorlton would be contaminated by a range of natural causes, like sand or clay quarries. An environmental search can give more clarity.

Q.

If I plan to purchase in the parish of Chorlton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Chorlton parish you are buying in, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

My partner and I are buying in Chorlton. How can we find out if the residence is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Buyers in Chorlton should be aware of numerous local conservation areas. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities for affected areas in Chorlton.

Q.

Is preparation of title repair or a indemnity policy a fee or disbursement?

A.

A good quote will clearly list all disbursements and fees. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

Which actual property conveyancing searches will the Chorlton conveyancing solicitor apply for when instructed on a Chorlton flat?

A.

The common legal protocol will be to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Cheshire Brine Search as well as any specific local searches, like a Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to arrange a solicitor to act for us?

A.

In the majority of situations, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act for you on your Chorlton transaction could mitigate the chance of your transaction aborting.
