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


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.


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


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.


We plan to purchase a converted chapel in the parish of Leigh. Is a chancel search appropriate?


The lawyer may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is located. Although some parish councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

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?


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.


Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?


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.
