Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £293,000 house?

A.

Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges will be included in the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Maryport?

A.

Maryport is located in Allerdale Borough Council, Allerdale House, Workington, Cumbria, CA14 3YJ, contact: 01900 702 702

Q.

I am taking out a mortgage with Bank of Ireland - is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Prior to recent changes, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased legal costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal can act for many CML-approved lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

With a leasehold flat ready to buy, and no chain, how do we guarantee a fast conveyancing process in Maryport?

Firstly, a faster move is crucial to is to use a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor. There are, however, a range of tasks you, as the purchaser, can also do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • quickly completing and return any forms
  • getting your mortgage offer in place
  • calling or emailing your conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing on the same road as a 13th Century glebe in Maryport.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Maryport property likely to be affected. Some names or words such as 'priory' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Churches in Maryport include Christ Church and St Mary.

Q.

If we are buying in the parish of Newbiggin, should we get a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancer might recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a house where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

What length of time can conveyancing to purchase a home take in Maryport?

A.

For the majority of clients, the length of time taken to sell or purchase a property will vary, dependent on numerous issues. These could include if the property is leasehold. With our solicitors, the matter receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

Is beryllium soil contamination likely in Maryport?

Even where some contamination has occurred in Maryport, risk levels are usually low. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as chlorine.
