Q.

Will the costs for our conveyancing in Ellesmere Port include any additional fees?

Regrettably, it is common practice for some firms to hide fees in small print of their terms and conditions, making their ‘quote’ appear very attractive, only for the bill to be far higher than you anticipated. Our solicitors never hide any extra fees. A Homeward Legal conveyancing quote is a single, accurate, fixed fee. Try our quote calculator or talk to our friendly experts on 0800 038 6699 for your fixed-fee quote.

Q.

We are intending to buy a property in the parish of Middlewich. Do we need a chancel search?

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to demand chancel repairs from the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish that hasn’t imposed it yet will continue to be free from liability. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend indemnity insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

How is any contaminated land investigated when purchasing a house in Ellesmere Port?

Residential property may have been contaminated by many environmental factors over the years, due to both historical and current causes. Issues like the proximity of waste disposal sites and environmental radon sources will be detailed in the results of the environmental search performed by your conveyancing solicitor and set out in the report on title. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Hooton Road, Hooton, CH66 7NB.

Q.

I have found a number of very helpful handbooks going into great depth on bypassing the solicitor. Do I therefore have to use a property lawyer in Ellesmere Port?

From a legal standpoint, there is absolutely no reason why a seller can’t do the conveyancing themselves. In reality, however, a solicitor in Ellesmere Port handles a significant number of tasks (including approving completion statements, or checking that the contract package is in order), some of which needs experience or training. Nonetheless, solicitors’ practices need to carry professional indemnity insurance to protect you in the event of any losses you encounter, and this is something you won’t have. Give Homeward Legal’s conveyancing solicitors a call on 0800 038 6699 for your free, fixed-fee quote, and to discuss your needs.

Q.

Unforeseeable financial circumstances dictate the need to complete on the conveyancing on our auctioned, freehold flat quickly. Do Homeward Legal have any particularly fast solicitors in Ellesmere Port?

Our conveyancers at Homeward Legal take a very proactive approach when completing the transfer of title for home-sellers. Homeward Legal’s solicitors’ approach to conveyancing is different from others, because we have invested in new document and form assembly systems. More importantly, we always give you a lawyer trained to communicate end-to-end throughout home buyer and seller chain.

Q.

Is obtaining landlord's consent to the assignment of a lease passed on at cost?

Comparing conveyancing quotes is not always easy, given the different terminology that solicitors use, which makes it quite confusing. This cost is a fee and not a disbursement. As such, it should be included in your conveyancing quote as part of the fee. Homeward Legal’s quotes are clearly laid out and transparently identify what constitutes the solicitor’s fee (which is fixed) and what compromises the various disbursements, so that you always know how much your final bill will be. Our team of conveyancing experts are waiting to talk to you on 0800 038 6699.

Q.

How will our solicitor advise us on the risk and history of possible flooding around Ellesmere Port for a residential property we are purchasing?

Your conveyancing lawyer will make an application for standard formal environmental searches that will include historical flood-risk data for the Ellesmere Port area. Should the results raise concerns about the level of risk, a further, more in-depth search can be instigated, which is a disbursement passed on to you at cost.

Q.

How long will it take my solicitor to carry out all the legal processes on an apartment in a fifties property in Ellesmere Port?

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between a month and twelve weeks. The length of time taken is contingent on a number of things (e.g. the speed of the seller's conveyancer, or re-negotiations following a building survey). Key to speedy conveyancing, though, is to appoint a diligent, focused solicitor, like the ones we have at Homeward Legal, as early as possible. To discuss your needs and to obtain your fixed-fee, ‘No Move, No Fee’-guaranteed quote, contact our team on 0800 038 6699.
