Q.

We need an affordable conveyancing quote. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may be added into the terms. Extra charges should be reasonable. They come into force only if the conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?

A.

It may not be clear whether an itemised charge is a disbursement or a fee. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' really mean?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a seller accepts the 1st buyer's offer and then rejects it, opting for a higher offer. This could occur even months into a sale. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. Instructing your solicitor as early as possible to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

The residence in Leigh being purchased is on a former industrial site. What should we do regarding caesium soil contamination?

A.

Restrictions exist to curtail topsoil contamination, but some existing contaminants can reside for decades after exposure. Metal contamination of topsoil in Leigh is more likely to

occur near disused factories or waste management sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like phenols, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What type of local environmental checks as respects the uncertain risk of a flood at Greater Manchester will the conveyancer in Leigh be able to apply for?

A.

A key component in the legal due diligence procedure carried out when buying a property involves the lawyer carrying out environmental searches that give you detail regarding Leigh flood risk.

Q.

Environmental searches may be conveyancing protocol but when one considers current events e g the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they still appropriate to investigate enough about the Leigh flood risk area?

A.

Property environmental searches handled by the Leigh conveyancing solicitor should also include a far more in depth flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you are worried you might try to contact a future neighbour or nearby Greater Manchester flood repair expert - like Rainbow International, Unit 9 Commonwealth Cl, Leigh, WN7 3BD Tel: 01942 606160.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search? We are purchasing a property in Leigh.

A.

Owners of property near to nearby church property may be required to contribute towards repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Leigh ecclesiastical properties include St Mary the Virgin, St Edburga, St Bartholomew and St Andrew.

Q.

We want to complete on the sale of our co-owned property in a short time frame, are you fast Leigh solicitors ?

A.

We take a very take charge approach when completing the conveyancing work to meet the sellers requirements.

Having invested in leading edge integrated systems . We assign clients a CQS conveyancer qualified to exert pressure with everyone in the chain like other buyers and sellers, to fulfil a quick sale.
