Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Crosby?

A.

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges may be added into the small print. Extra fees listed in terms of engagement should be fair.

Q.

Regarding the flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are apprehensive that environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches conducted by your conveyancing solicitor in Crosby will include the more thorough search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are concerned why not consult one of your future neighbours.

Q.

May the legal charges conceal any hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any additional fees whatsoever. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

What factors can contaminate land in Crosby. Will they be comprehensively investigated?

A.

Residential property could be contaminated by many factors caused by man and by nature, like masts or pylons and shallow mining. An environmental search should offer more information.

Q.

Q.

For our lender, we have chosen Bradford and Bingley - is there anything we need to know?

A.

Traditionally, most conveyancing solicitors were able to undertake legal work for a lender. Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, which may result in greater legal costs for purchasers. We will act on behalf of the majority of lenders.

Q.

We are looking to move from our semi detached house near Crosby into our next home in Childwall , at what stage to choose a home removal firm?

A.

Most solicitors will suggest that house movers put off arranging removals until such time as contracts have exchanged as generally a date wont have been accepted by both parties.

As a rule removals companies might charge a rearrangement premium . Local home mover companies include Liverpool Man & Van, 53 Coronation Dr, Crosby, Liverpool, L23 3BW Tel: 0151 286 2970 or Dolphin Removals & Storage Ltd, 25 Alexandra Rd, Crosby, Liverpool, L23 7TA Call: 0151 931 4441.

Q.

Can you explain why purchase conveyancing work requires weeks?

A.

The legal work undertaken to transfer property in Crosby can be lengthy. Homeward Legal do our best to minimise their impact wherever possible to do so. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as a slow firm acting for the lender.
