Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Irlam.

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers A quote should, in addition, define any disbursements. Any extra costs which are listed in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable. They only come into force where your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

What sort of environmental searches in respect to the potential risk of floods in the Greater Manchester region will a Irlam solicitor do for a Sixties house I am wanting to buy?

A.

A lawyer will conduct environmental searches that will include Irlam flood risk data. In addition your Irlam property solicitor will often suggest a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) detailed local Irlam search.

Q.

What will a Irlam property solicitor advise if the home is located in a Trafford local authority conservation area and turns out to have an un-consented roof aerials added?

A.

Trafford council enquiries carried out by your solicitor during the legal process will identify whether the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of formal approval for changes to the property will be asked for. In the event that no appropriate consents be available, the solicitor will

inform you of the best alternative e.g. buying an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective approval from the council.

Q.

the Co-operative Bank is going to be our lender, what will I need to check?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, fortunately, will act for most CML-approved lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

Conveyancing searches (environmental) are calculated from archived data but when one considers recent events e g the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, are they in fact the ideal way t see enough about the ever changing Irlam risk of flooding?

A.

A competent conveyancing solicitor in Irlam should also get in depth environmental searches from Landmark if the environmental search flags up any kind of local Irlam flood risk.

Why not speak to a local resident to gain more insight.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal look after the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Irlam?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with sellers at auction. Traditionally difficult to value buildings are purchased at property auctions and these require further review by the property lawyer We therefore advocate buyers to formally appoint a conveyancing lawyer prior to the actual auction for a full investigation of the legal documents. Subsequently, following the day of bidding your appointed solicitor is wholly focused on completing the legal work in 28 days as required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

What issues are key to arrange fast conveyancing?
