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.

Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain records of the state of repair of conservation areas in Crosby and across England. Conservation areas in Crosby are created by the local Sefton planning authority, who manage everything from public spaces to the blockage of new developments.Q.
Some owners in Crosby can be required to pay for repairs to a local church. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts
of the country. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Crosby church lands which may give rise to chancel liability include Great St Luke, Old St Runius, St George and St Michael.Q.
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.
Conservation areas categorise areas recognised as being of special architectural or historic interest. You may wish to contact the local authority if you have specific questions, but your property solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.Q.
The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, whichever parish in which the home being purchased is located. In Crosby's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.Q.
