How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need fixed rate conveyancing.


Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges will be included in the terms that home owners often do not check. Any disbursements ought to be listed on a Little Hulton conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Should we order a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Little Hulton?


Whether you are buying a home in Little Hulton or elsewhere in the county, the property solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Little Hulton, chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Doing ones own conveyancing by bypassing a conveyancing solicitor in Little Hulton looks to be possible when buying and selling a flat. Would it be a false economy ?


There is no reason why a home seller cant go down that route and embark on the bulk of the your own conveyancing without the help of property lawyer in Little Hulton.

However, a property solicitor in Little Hulton juggles a significant number of tasks such as chasing mortgage offer and apportioning ground rents many of which need a qualified solicitor. Above all else DIY lawyers are not covered by the correct insurance which all lawyers need to be in possession of.


How much will the searches in Little Hulton be?


The cost of searches will vary. Searches are disbursements, and will be charged at cost.


Will my property lawyer in Little Hulton report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band A maisonette prior to exchange?


The solicitor will liaise with the Salford local authority to ask about the appropriate council tax band and rates, which will then be included in the title report.

The latest council tax charges for residents of Little Hulton are detailed online at the Salford council site. At the time of authoring (04 August 2012) rates are:

  • Band A - £1,016.00
  • Band B - £1,185.00
  • Band C - £1,354.00
  • Band D - £1,523.00
  • Band E - £1,862.00
  • Band F - £2,200.00
  • Band G - £2,539.00
  • Band H - £3,047.00


As a consequence of the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are asking if environmental searches aren't detailed enough?


Property conveyancing searches carried out by the conveyancer in Little Hulton will also include a more in depth flood search if required.

If you are still worried you could attempt to get in touch with a local resident.


What specific property does my conveyancing solicitor in Little Hulton apply for a Little Hulton flat?


The regular conveyancing protocol will be to get the following Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental and Coal Mining Search (Con29M) and perhaps less common searches for example Chancel.


Which environmental factors can affect land in Little Hulton. Will they be checked for comprehensively?


A wide range of contaminants caused by factors caused by man and by nature may ruin property in Little Hulton, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a specific plot of land may be affected by contaminants in the area including military land and brine works.
