Q.

I am looking for a cheap solicitor quote for selling a property. What do I need to check for?

A.

Numerous law firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges can pad your solicitor's invoice. Any fees ought to be fair. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid ought to be listed on a quote. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your sell.

Q.

Knotty Ash conveyancers order varied conveyancing searches when instructed to act for a purchaser but what particular ones?

A.

If purchasing and applying for a mortgage the mortgage lender mandates at least the following for properties in Knotty Ash: Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and perhaps specific searches for example Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).

Q.

If I am buying near Knotty Ash, in the parish of Liverpool St Luke, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Knotty Ash or elsewhere in the county, the property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel

repairs on the owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

What causes the purchase conveyancing process to seem to be so slow? Isn't it just filing paperwork?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home will sometimes be lengthy. Homeward Legal endeavour to minimise the effect of these delays where viable.

Q.

Do we need to select a conveyancing solicitor named by my estate agent?

A.

An agent will push a law firm to handle your conveyancing. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search when we are buying a house on the same street as a rectory manor in Knotty Ash?

A.

Owners of property in Knotty Ash may be subject to chancel repair liability. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Knotty Ash must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Knotty Ash church lands include St John.

Q.

How is stamp duty tax calculated and how much will it be on a £1.055mil property?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate you must pay is dependent on several factors, primarily the value of the house or flat. It will be £52750 on a £1.055mil home (correct March 2013).

Q.

Is a building survey advisable when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition, in Knotty Ash?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that you order a property survey. Many issues have a negative impact on a property, for example poor ventilation and poor drainage. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
