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 I be worried about gazumping?


This describes when a seller accepts a low offer, only to later refuse it in favour of another buyer's higher offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Instructing your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.


What sort of local searches in respect to the risk of a flood in the Greater Manchester area will a conveyancing solicitor in Little Hulton apply for on a Victorian home I am buying?


A conveyancer will conduct environmental searches that will include Little Hulton flood risk area information. Furthermore the lawyer in Little Hulton could propose a substantially more involved local flood search.


Is it advisable that we get a chancel search? We are buying a apartment in Little Hulton.


Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Your solicitor can provide more details. Church lands in this area include St John Baptist.


Which streets of Little Hulton are safeguarded by a conservation area?


With over 8,000 listed areas across the country, the neighbourhoods located near Little Hulton will include several conservation areas. Your property solicitor will provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area, regarding specific conservation areas in Little Hulton.


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.


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


The vendor has unfortunately fitted unbecoming PVC windows on the maisonette in Little Hulton which I think may defy conservation area rules


Your conveyancing solicitor will find out whether the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have appropriate permissions from the Salford council. In the event that no authority consents be supplied, your solicitor will inform you of the best alternative which can include obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective consent from the planning authority.
