Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We are looking for fixed rate conveyancing.


Confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. A conveyancing quote should list applicable disbursements. Extra fees which are listed in the terms needs to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


Which specific property conveyancing searches does the Greater Manchester property solicitor order for a Greater Manchester flat?


The customary conveyancing protocol will be to get the following Local Authority (council), Drainage Search, Environmental and Coal Mining Search (Con29M), and possibly specific searches, which may include a Planning report.


We are purchasing a house in Greater Manchester. Is a chancel search necessary?

The solicitor may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish in which the home being purchased is located. In older areas of Greater Manchester, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


What are property searches in regard to?


These searches are a set of enquiries ordered by your conveyancing solicitor with local and national authorities, which may include an environmental search. Conveyancing searches are very informative, but only deal with the legal condition of the property's title.


In what ways can my Greater Manchester conveyancing solicitor investigate the potential risk of local flooding in Greater Manchester?


The conveyancer applies for standard formal environmental searches that should include Greater Manchester flood risk area data.


Is it possible that some of the designated Greater Manchester conservation areas are in neglected condition?


A recent directory of the condition of conservation areas is assessed by English Heritage (formerly Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England). The following data are available at their site: Stalybridge Town Centre marked as very bad with medium vulnerability and deteriorating.


What actions can I take to defer paying stamp duty?


Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is usually payable for purchases over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty reduction is not recommended for purchases in Greater Manchester, as such schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail. There have been several government initiatives, however, such as for first-time buyers.


Will your conveyancing solicitor inGreater Manchester obtain personal or official searches on my home purchase?


Your conveyancer will make a recommendation regarding the ideal route, depending on issues like mortgage lender requirements. If personal searches are used a conveyancing solicitor might perhaps look for a search agent e.g EASI-HIP Ltd t/a Property Solutions Northwest (Manchester), 10 Roseneath Road, Urmston, Manchester, M41 5AU Tel: 0161 747 2151 Fax: 0161 747 2151
