Read about the Garston area ;

Liverpool John Lennon Airport is 2 miles from Garston. Howarden Airport is 13 miles and Eccles Airport is 23 miles away. Liverpool South Parkway station is approximately 1 mile from Garston.

Sir Alfred Jones Memorial Liverpool is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are looking for fixed rate Garston conveyancing.

A.

Numerous firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions. Additional fees should be reasonable. They be applicable if your solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

We are buying a investment flat in a conservation area in Garston. Where can I find data in relation to the state of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Liverpool) who oversee things like area development to street clutter. English Heritage have produced records of the state of repair of conservation areas.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search? I am buying a Garston property on the same road as land owned by the church.

A.

Property owners near to nearby church property may be required to cover the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists.

Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Garston church lands include St Michael.

Q.

How many weeks does it take the property solicitor to conduct all of the legal formalities on an apartment in a Thirties property?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from one month to 12 weeks dependent on various things e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or the speed of managing agents.

Q.

The residence in Garston being purchased is on a brownfield land. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Garston, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. The local authority for Garston will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

If I plan to purchase in the parish of Whalley, should we get a chancel search?

A.

A property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Garston's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Whalley, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue in Garston?

A.

Several contaminants may lessen the desirability Garston property, like sand or clay quarries. An environmental search can give more clarity.

Q.

What type of exploration in respect to the risk and history of a flood in Merseyside will a Garston property lawyer examine?

A.

An important step in the conveyancing protocol involves your conveyancing lawyer making an application for environmental searches that give you certain details about the potential Garston flood risk.
