Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing quote. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

This topic affects many sellers and buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many law firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Charges found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and be applied only where the lawyer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should you instruct a conveyancer to handle our sale?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks that can be carried out very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a sale allows paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Everton solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

We plan to purchase a residence in North Meols. Is a chancel search important?

A.

Whichever Everton parish you are purchasing in, a property solicitor could advise a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of

lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Will the charges for my conveyancing take into account any additional charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra costs for standard conveyancing work. You should be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

What average time should I expect it to take the solicitor to conduct all of the conveyancing formalities on a semi detached Victorian house we are purchasing in Everton?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between around a month and three months depending on a number of issues e.g. the efficiency of the seller's property lawyer, or the speed of your lender.

Q.

Does the High Speed 2 route impact property in South Oxhey?

A.

Yes, High Speed 2 Phase 1 will affect houses in South Oxhey's local authority. This initial stage of HS2 will affect 23 local councils including Three Rivers District, from central London to the Midlands.

Q.

Do I need a chancel liability search? I am purchasing a apartment near a church furlong in Everton.

A.

The judgement in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must pay for church repairs. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Everton properties is likely to exist. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Everton church lands include Holy Trinity, St George and St Mary.

Q.

What sort of scrutiny into the potential risk of flooding around Merseyside will a conveyancer in Everton advise us on?

A.

An experienced conveyancer will apply for standard formal conveyancing and environmental searches that incorporate Everton historical flood risk data. In addition the Everton property solicitor will typically propose an inexpensive additional detailed local Everton flood risk search.
