Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Various firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, however additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement which buyers and sellers may have not read carefully A conveyancing quote should also state any disbursements. Charges ought to be reasonable and clear and only come into force where the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

I am buying a restored chapel in the parish of Liverpool St David. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. Although some church councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Which areas of Lancashire are safeguarded by a conservation area?

A.

Parts of Lancashire considered be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like 18th century suburbs, may be designated as conservation areas. Ruff Lane, Scarisbrick Park and Leyland Cross are among the conservation areas in Lancashire. Your property solicitor will be able to offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

Do we need to get a house survey for this Lancashire home purchase?

A.

It is heavily suggested that the majority of purchasers in Lancashire arrange a property survey when buying in Lancashire. There are a wide range of issues which can affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on. These include roof spread and unsafe chimney circulation.

Q.

We are buying on a Lancashire ex-industrial use land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Lancashire agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as insecticides and groundwater contamination.

Q.

When in the process should we find a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner the better. Instructing a conveyancing firm early for a purchase allows you will the details of your Lancashire solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

In what ways does my conveyancing solicitor in Lancashire report back on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Lancashire area?

A.

A necessary component in the conveyancing protocol involves your lawyer applying for environmental searches that set out information on the subject of Lancashire flood risk area. In certain cases the Lancashire conveyancing solicitor may possibly advocate a significantly more in-depth flood search.

Q.

Is it recommended that we get a chancel search? I am purchasing on the same street as a church built in the 1600s in Lancashire.

A.

Where land in Lancashire was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for repairs to churches. Parochial Church Councils in Lancashire must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your solicitor can provide more details.
