Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs will be included in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on the conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

The internet is full of a multitude of useful documents all about doing your own legal work. Do I therefore want to use a Eccleston solicitor ?

A.

There is no argument why a seller cannot carry out the legal work without the help of an experienced lawyer in Eccleston. The truth is however that a conveyancer handles a huge array of functions such as stock transfer forms and notifying the Land Registry of new charges most of which require a qualified professional. Above all else DIY conveyancers are not covered by suitable cover that every lawyers must take out.

Q.

What length of time should it take for our solicitor to complete all of the legal process on a flat in a home in Eccleston?

A.

It can take anywhere between one month and 12 weeks depending on various issues e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or the speed of the lender.

Q.

I am planning to sell our jointly owned house at a property auction, can your panel give us fast Eccleston conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Our home moving lawyers typically have a completely proactive modus operandi when completing the legal work as fast as possible.

With us, solicitors will always communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller chain and use modern integrated and IT systems to complete on your home move in the shortest time.

Q.

Should I get a chancel liability search? I am buying a Eccleston maisonette on the same street as parsonage grounds.

A.

The judgement in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Eccleston ecclesiastical properties include Christ Church, St Luke, St Mary the Virgin and St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

Which issues are important to guarantee a fast conveyancing process?

A.

As is widely reported, a fast conveyancing transaction is essential to is to employing a proactive, diligent conveyancer. There are several things you, as the purchaser, can also do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly
  • quickly answering your conveyancer's questions (by email if possible)
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements

Q.

If I am purchasing in the parish of Oldham St James, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Eccleston parish you are buying in, the conveyancer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. In Eccleston's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

What sort of local checks about the risk of local flooding at Merseyside will my conveyancing solicitor in Eccleston actually conduct?

A.

An essential step in the conveyancing process of buying a property involves your conveyancer applying for property environmental searches that give you some details of any likely risk of flooding in Eccleston.
