Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a 562,000 home?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges may inflate your final bill. Costs should be fair. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Myself and my partner are buying in Eccles. Can we find out whether the house is in a designated conservation area?

A.

The local areas near or within Eccles include a range of areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' designated as conservation areas. The local council will advise further about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

Will my professional conveyancing solicitor in Eccles report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band C building prior to exchanging contracts?

A.

Your conveyancer will write to the Salford local authority to discover the appropriate council tax rates, which will be set out in the conveyancing report on title. Up-to-date rates for properties in Eccles are listed on the Salford local authority site. At the time of writing, 29 August 2012, rates are:

  • Band A - £1,016.00
    >
  • Band B - £1,185.00
  • Band C - £1,354.00
  • Band D - £1,523.00
  • Band E - £1,862.00
  • Band F - £2,200.00
  • Band G - £2,539.00
  • Band H - £3,047.00

Q.

The ground-floor flat being purchased is on a brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Eccles, soil contamination is unavoidable. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contaminants like household chemicals and food-processing waste.

Q.

May the legal fees incorporate any additional charges?

A.

Unfortunately, it is common practice for some firms to hide fees in small print. Homeward Legal will not charge any extra, hidden charges. Your quote is an single, accurate fee.

Q.

We are buying a 1940s investment flat within a conservation area, where can I lay my hands on more details on the state of repair of the conservation area?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together a list of the state of repair of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Eccles are designated by Salford who regulate everything from street furniture to the thwarting of derelict buildings.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors set up to very fast completions on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Eccles?

A.

Our company regularly carry out work for auction buyers and sellers. Conveyancers invariably advocate purchasers to decide on a property conveyancing lawyer in advance of the property auction to allow for a thorough review of the sellers documents.

Immediately following the date of the auction your lawyer is thoroughly geared up to completing all of the legal work in the limited time frame as required .

Q.

Will you need searches for chancel liability? We are buying a apartment near rectory land in Eccles.

A.

Property owners proximate to nearby church property may be required to fund repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Terms used in a property's name, like 'priory', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Eccles ecclesiastical properties where chancel liability may apply include St Andrew, St Mary Magdalene's Church, St Mary the Virgin and St Mary The Virgin.
