Q.

When in the process should we get a solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can begin straight away. Instructing a firm to handle your Heywood conveyancing early for a purchase means that you will the details of your Heywood solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

Q.

If I buy a book about handling the legal work when buying a maisonette - Would it be sensible to do the conveyancing myself without any help?

A.

Technically speaking there is no argument at all why a home mover cannot decide to do the bulk of the legal and technical work on your own.

However, a conveyancing solicitor in Heywood is familiar with a large array of exercises including chasing outstanding papers or identifying the most appropriate searches many of which really need a qualified professional.

Q.

Could Heywood top-soil be contaminated by tin?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Heywood, risk levels are usually low. The local authority for Heywood will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Flood searches are conveyancing protocol but considering climate change e g the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they still appropriate to determine enough about the changing Heywood future flood risk?

A.

Property environmental searches handled by your property lawyer in Heywood will also include a more thorough search (Landmark) if required.

If you are apprehensive why not try to get in touch with a neighbour of the property.
