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.

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.

Q.

I would like to know which Garston lenders you can work with. Whose panels are you on?

A.

Most lenders in Garston are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Liverpool Mortgage Solutions Ltd, 88/86/St. Marys Road, Garston, Liverpool, L19 2JG.

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.

Flood searches are all well and good but in light of recent flooding for example the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they still appropriate to determine enough about the ever changing Garston future flood risk?

A.

Property conveyancing searches handled by a Garston conveyancer should also include a far more detailed search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still apprehensive you could attempt to get in touch with a next door neighbour.

Q.

How is stamp duty measured, and what will it be on a £801000 Garston property?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the purchase price. For a property valued at £801000, stamp duty is £32040.*

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Blackburn has named a law firm whom they usually use. Do I need to use them?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will push one or more conveyancing firms, however, these referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are likely to move from our semi detached building just outside Garston into our new maisonette in Formby what is the right point to select a removal company?

A.

Most property lawyers will advocate that you hold off until the point where exchange of contracts because commonly an agreed date wont have been decided. The greater majority of residential removals firms might charge a late cancellation fee
