Q.

I need to find a cheap Fleetwood solicitor to own auction property. What do I need to check for?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many conveyancers promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra charges found in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable.

Q.

Flood risk searches are conveyancing protocol but considering recent climactic events e g the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they the best way to check sufficient information about the Fleetwood area flood risk?

A.

Environmental searches applied for by your property solicitor in Fleetwood will also include a more detailed flood search if required.

If you are apprehensive you could try to contact a neighbour or local resident or nearby Lancashire flood repair builder, like Beeston M, 20 Gordon Rd, Fleetwood, FY7 6UE Tel: 01253 772460.

Q.

Does our lawyer in Fleetwood report back to me about the amount of council tax to be paid for a Band E townhouse prior to exchange?

A.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing process to take so long?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally take more time than budgeted for a variety of reasons. The causes can sometimes be out of the solicitors' hands, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to minimise the consequences of these delays whenever we can do so by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Delays may include a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

Can I verify if a residence is in one of Fleetwood's conservation areas?

A.

There are a number of conservation areas in or near Fleetwood. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions can add to maintenance costs. A conveyancing lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

If I am buying in Fleetwood close by a priory, will I need a chancel search?

A.

Owners of property in Fleetwood may be subject to chancel repair liability. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Fleetwood church properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St David, St Nicholas Church and St Peter.

Q.

Would getting a house survey be necessary if we are purchasing a home?

A.

It is advised that home buyers in Fleetwood book a house survey if you are planning to buy in Fleetwood. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that will impact a property. These can include settlement and blocked drains. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
