Q.

How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Horwich?

A.

Numerous solicitors advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees may inflate the final bill. Any charges which are listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

When buying a unique flat in a designated conservation area in Horwich. How do I find more details in respect of the standard of repair?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have created a detailed list of the state of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area. Conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Bolton) who maintain everything from property boundaries to the impediment of billboards.

Q.

Which particular search enquiries will a Horwich property lawyer conduct when instructed on a Horwich flat?

A.

The customary conveyancing protocol is to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environment Search and Coal Mining Search (Con29M), and possibly specific searches for instance Bankruptcy Search (K16).

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer to act for us?

A.

The straightforward answer is, as soon as possible. Instructing a conveyancing firm to handle your Horwich conveyancing early for a sale enables documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

What is the explanation why sale conveyancing legal work takes such a long time?

A.

Conveyancing may be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal strive to lessen their cost by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

Do I need to opt for a conveyancing suggested by the agent?

A.

Many estate agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

If I am buying a Horwich house close to a church constructed in the 12th Century, is it recommended to get a chancel search?

A.

The result of a landmark case in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. 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. Church properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include Holy Trinity, St Catherine and St Elizabeth.

Q.

We have found a buyer and have a quote from you. Could we have to pay any hidden charges?

A.

No. We never hide any hidden extra fees regardless of circumstances. Know that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.
