Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a £147k property?

A.

Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional costs should be fair. They be applicable solely where the lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What kind of environmental conveyancing searches in connection with the risk and history of possible flooding in Greater Manchester will my conveyancing solicitor in Hale actually do for an investment maisonette I am wanting to buy?

A.

A property conveyancer makes an application for standard environmental searches that incorporate Hale flood risk data. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more specialist set of searches, such as the Landmark search, might be suggested by the Hale solicitor if in the event that the environmental search identify flood risk to the property.

Q.

Following recent news about the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, I am worried that flood searches aren't detailed enough?

A.

Flood searches conducted by the conveyancing solicitor in Hale will include a far more informative search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are anxious you could call a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

Will my solicitor in Hale conduct personal or official searches on my home purchase?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor will make a recommendation about the ideal type of search, depending on issues like lender requirements. For personal searches, the conveyancing solicitor may consider a search agent wit local experience for example Scout Legal Services a trading name of Mrs T Hinde, 58 Stanhope Road, Bowdon, Altrincham, Cheshire, WA14 3JL Tel: 0161 929 6936 Fax: 0161 929 6937

Q.

My estate agent has offered the conveyancing. Will it be easier to use this firm?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon route to find a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Will we need searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing a property in Hale.

A.

In Hale, some owners can be required to pay for maintenance of a local church. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Hale church lands where chancel liability may apply include St John the Evangelist, St Mary, St Mary and St Peter.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Hale?

A.

Conservation areas characterise neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your conveyancing solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.
