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.

Will we need a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Liverpool St Michael, near Crosby?

A.

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.

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.

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.

Could Crosby soil be contaminated by cobalt (Co)?

A.

There are extensive regulations in place to control soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination.

Q.

For a fast completion on the purchase of a £909,000 property, what can we do to speed up the process?

A.

Instructing a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor is crucial to a fast conveyancing transaction. There are numerous tasks you, as the buyer, can do to speed up the process, such as, answering any queries raised by the conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible, encouraging your conveyancing solicitor to carry out searches promptly and getting your mortgage offer in place.

Q.

I am planning to buy in Crosby. How can we check if the house is in a conservation area?

A.

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.

Is preparation of statutory declarations paid to the conveyancer?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always easy, given the various definitions different firms use to describe the same thing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in the quote for your conveyancing.
