How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?


Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many law firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Would you recommend that we get a chancel search? I am buying by a 1500s 'church furlong' in Grappenhall.


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Grappenhall which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to local churches. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Grappenhall property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Grappenhall churches where a chancel search may be necessary include St Wilfrid.


Which government authority is responsible for safeguarding the condition of repair of the conservation areas in Grappenhall?

Conservation areas are set up by Warrington who administer conservation area concerns from including things like poorly maintained pavements, the addition of stone cladding and building materials used.

Following a campaign, English Heritage maintain records of the state of conservation areas.


Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Haslington, near Grappenhall?


The solicitor responsible for your move may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the home being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Which local authority is responsible for Grappenhall?


Grappenhall is located in Warrington Borough Council, Town Hall, Warrington, Cheshire, WA1 1UH, Tel: 01925 443 322


When in the conveyancing process do we need to instruct a solicitor to handle our sale?


Simply, earlier is preferable, as the legal work can commence immediately. Promptly instructing a firm for your Grappenhall transaction can reduce the likelihood of the transaction falling through.


How much would the searches usually cost?


Searches range in cost, depending on the searches required by your lender. The most generally useful searches include a mining search and a local authority search.


Following recent news about the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am questioning if flood searches might not be sufficient?


A Grappenhall property lawyer will recommend that you also get environmental searches if the environmental conveyancing searches flag up a Grappenhall flood risk area data

It could be worth trying to get in touch with a future neighbour to get added assurance.
