Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing in Malpas?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra fees are often hiding in the terms, left unregarded by busy buyers Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on the quote Any costs should be fair and clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

When I am buying in Malpas, is it important that we get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Property owners near to church property in the locality are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Some names or words such as 'Glebe Farm' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Malpas Church of England properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St Andrew and St Oswald.

Q.

Which individual property does a Malpas conveyancing solicitor carry out when buying a Malpas property?

A.

The conventional conveyancing procedure will be to get these searches - Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Cheshire Brine Search (Coal Authority) and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches for instance Commons Registration Search.

Q.

In regards to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am wondering if flood risk searches might not be detailed enough?

A.

A property solicitor in Malpas should include conveyancing searches (environmental) if the initial search identifies a the local Malpas flood risk

Q.

I plan to buy a rectory in the parish of Great Budworth. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Malpas or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. In Malpas's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Which environmental factors will contaminate land in Malpas. Are they a problem?

A.

Malpas property will be contaminated by many environmental concerns, like shallow mining or proximity to scrap yards. An environmental search will give more detail.
