Q.

I am trying to find a cheap Macclesfield solicitor for selling a residence. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Numerous property lawyers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional charges may inflate the solicitor's invoice. Additional costs included in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable and be applicable solely where your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are selling.

Q.

Will we need a home buyers survey?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors advise that the majority of purchasers in Macclesfield arrange a surveyor. There are many concerns that will impact a property. These can include roof spread, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Is iron (Fe) often found in Macclesfield soil?

A.

Effort is made in and around Macclesfield to find and clean up soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination.

Q.

I am planning on buying an extended flat in the middle of a conservation area in Macclesfield. Where does one find information about the state of upkeep of the conservation area?

Local Macclesfield conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Cheshire East) who manage things like upkeep of paths to the blockage of ugly shop fronts. Following a campaign, English Heritage keep information on the condition of conservation areas in Macclesfield and throughout England along with the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

What actual property does a conveyancing solicitor in Macclesfield apply for when buying a Macclesfield property?

A.

The customary legal procedure will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environmental and Cheshire Brine Search (Coal Authority) as well as any area-specific searches e.g. a Flood Risk search.

Q.

How is stamp duty measured, and how much do we need to pay on a £917000 Macclesfield property?

A.

The Stamp Duty you will owe will rely on the value of the house. For a property bought for £917000, SDLT will be £36680.

Q.

In the next month we are intending to be finally moving out of our semi detached home in Macclesfield to a new building in Knutsford what is the optimum stage to select a home removal company?

A.

Most conveyancers usually recommend that home vendors wait arranging removals until such time as formal exchange of contracts as a final moving date will not have been confirmed. Local removals companies include Henry's Express Light Haulage Ltd, 25 Hedingham Close, Macclesfield, SK10 3LZ on 01625 616989 or Johnsons, 23B Church St, Macclesfield, SK11 6LB Phone: 01625 422000.

Q.

I am buying a converted chapel in Burton. Will a chancel search be specified?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will remain liability-free for new owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
