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 issues are key to arrange fast conveyancing?

As is often reported, a fast conveyancing transaction is essential to is to use a proactive and experienced solicitor. Consider the following:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

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.

Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Irlam?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Irlam, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

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.
