Q.

Local points of interest in Eccleston

A.

St Helens World of Glass Educational and Sherdley Park Country Park are around Eccleston.

The nearest hospital for Eccleston is Fairfield St Helens.

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.

What is the council tax on a Thirties semi-detached home in Eccleston?

A.

As a rule a conveyancer's title report should give the appropriate St Helens council tax band.

The latest council tax charges for residents of Eccleston are published at the St Helens local authority site. At the time of writing, 21 October 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £931.00
  • Band B - £1,086.00
  • Band C - £1,241.00
  • Band D - £1,396.00
  • Band E - £1,706.00
  • Band F - £2,016.00
  • Band G - £2,326.00
  • Band H - £2,792.00

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.

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.

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 can a Eccleston conveyancing solicitor recommend if the flat we hope to buy is inside a St Helens planning authority conservation area and has unsightly dormer windows fitted?

A.

St Helens planning authority LLC1 searches carried out by a solicitor should see the existence of suitable permission for any alterations to the building.

Q.

Is a house survey required if we are buying a property, irrespective of its condition, in Eccleston?

A.

It is strongly recommended that you arrange a property surveyor to perform a survey. There are a range of problems that can negatively affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work. These include rotten roof timbers.

Q.

What will our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

Searches range in cost, depending on the particular searches ordered. They are paid to a third party.
