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.

For our lender, we have chosen Natwest - is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. For property buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, fortunately, can act for all large UK mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

As a consequence of the flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are wondering whether flood risk searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches applied for by the property lawyer in Macclesfield will include a far more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are still concerned why not try to get in touch with a next door neighbour or regional Cheshire flood damage expert - try Greystone & Co, James House/Calamine St, Macclesfield, SK11 7HU Tel: 01625 500252.

Q.

Which lender panels in Macclesfield are your solicitors on?

A.

Most lenders in Macclesfield are on our Macclesfield solicitors' panel. Macclesfield lenders and mortgage specialists include Stonier J & Son, 101 Chester Rd, Macclesfield, SK11 8DL, Time 4 A Mortgage, Cromwell House/Royal Ct, Macclesfield, SK11 7AE, and East Cheshire, 22 Church St, Macclesfield, SK11 6LB.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing a home close by a church constructed around the 1700s in Macclesfield.

A.

Owners of property in an area near church property in the locality may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Macclesfield Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church lands in the area where chancel liability may apply include Holy Trinity, St.Paul's,, Marlborough County Primary School and Marlborough County Primary School.

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.

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.

Can you explain why Macclesfield conveyancing takes such a long time?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a house or flat may be exposed to significant delays even where there is no chain. The causes can sometimes be out of the conveyancing solicitor's hands, we, however, appreciate how disruptive they may be and aim to curtail the cost of these delays if it is possible to do so. Delays include a slow firm acting for the lender.
