Q.

I am looking for a cheap Lymm solicitor to own a new build property. What are the risks?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Any extra fees found in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Do homewardlegal.co.uk carry out the conveyancing of property auction properties in Lymm?

A.

Yes - Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Lymm frequently take instructions from buyers and sellers at auction. Solicitors typically suggest buyers at auction to choose an affordable lawyer well before the auction for a detailed report of the auction legal papers. Subsequently, immediately after the day of bidding your now prepared lawyer is thoroughly prepared for rapidly finishing the legal work in as short a time frame as usually required by the terms if sale.

Q.

When in the process do you need to speak to a conveyancer in Lymm?

A.

Generally, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are a number of tasks which may be carried out immediately. Some authors advocate holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Which Lymm lenders do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have solicitors with experience working beside many lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Lymm, including Cheshire Building Society, 27 The Cross, Lymm, WA13 0HR.

Q.

How do we avoid gazumping?

A.

Gazumping happens when a house seller approves the first purchaser's offer, only to later reject it in favour of a greater offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a fast, efficient solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

We are buying on a former industrial site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Lymm, but some very localised cases of contamination in Lymm may pose unacceptably high risk. Metal contamination of soil in Lymm is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like organic compounds and food-processing waste, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Is a building survey sensible when buying property?

A.

It is firmly advised that Lymm buyers instruct a surveyor to undertake a survey when buying in Lymm. There are a wide range of concerns which affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, such as cavity wall tie failure.

Q.

What do we need to know about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

Usually, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
