Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates for a £735,000 property?

A.

Numerous property lawyers claim to offer cheap conveyancing, however extra fees are often hiding in the small print. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. The disbursements to be paid should also be included on the conveyancing quote Charges should be fair. They only be applied if your solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Formby industry, agriculture and the natural environment can cause soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including acidic compounds and groundwater contaminants like solvents.

Q.

Formby conveyancing solicitors do varied searches when acting for a purchaser - what particular ones?

A.

If you are getting a mortgage the mortgage lender will expect specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search,, and possibly unique particular for example Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).

Q.

Environmental searches are conveyancing protocol but considering recent climactic events for example the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they still appropriate to investigate enough about the changing Formby flood risk area?

A.

Flood searches applied for by your Formby property solicitor will include a more thorough search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are concerned you could contact a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

What causes conveyancing to require months? Should we be worried?

A.

The conveyancing process may be delayed, we, however, endeavour to minimise the cost of these delays, if it is possible to do so, by driving the sale or purchase forward.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Formby?

A.

Q.

When do you need to find a solicitor in Formby?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may be performed very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a firm to act for you on your Formby transaction for a sale allows information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen Metro Bank - what will we need to consider?

A.

In some cases, lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for property purchasers. We, though, will act for most lenders so that you will not be required to pay your lender's legal costs.
