Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need to find a discount conveyancing estimate in Merseyside.

A.

Both high-street and online law firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional fees will be included in the small print. Extra fees found in terms of engagement should be reasonable. They only apply in cases where your lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is it possible that some of the Merseyside conservation areas are at risk?

A.

An up-to-date directory of the state of Merseysides conservation areas is chronicled by English Heritage and the following details are accessible at English Heritage - Prescot Town Centre is recorded as very bad with medium vulnerability and condition improving.

Q.

May the property legal fees take into account any hidden costs?

A.

Regrettably, sellers need to be watchful for extra costs hidden in a quote's terms and conditions. We do not hide any additional charges.

Q.

How will my Merseyside solicitor report back on the potential risk of possible flooding in Merseyside?

A.

An important step in the conveyancing process involved in buying a home involves a conveyancing lawyer conducting environmental searches that go in some details regarding Merseyside historical flood risk.

Q.

As a consequence of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are questioning if conveyancing searches (environmental) aren't sufficient?

A.

Property environmental searches conducted by a Merseyside conveyancer should also include the more in depth flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you remain still concerned you could try to approach a neighbour.

Q.

We are buying on a newly development brownfield site. What should we do regarding iron (Fe) soil contamination?

A.

Merseyside industrial or agricultural can cause top-soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination.

Q.

I am anticipating to be finally moving from our semi detached home in Merseyside into a dwelling in Lancashire what is the right point to book a removal company?

A.

Homeward Legals advice is for buyers to hold off booking a removal firm until such time as everyone has agreed a completion date which commonly occurs once exchange of contracts. For a local North West England firm Sargent Frank, 59 Moss Gro, Liverpool, L8 0SA Call: 0151 734 3039 or Removals Services In Liverpool, 94 Lime Gr, Toxteth, Liverpool, L8 0SL Telephone: 07880 656706.

Q.

My partner and I are purchasing a building in Merseyside. Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

Conservation areas specify regions of historical or architectural value. Prescot Town Centre, Albert Dock and Canning Street are among the conservation areas in Merseyside. These restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities, but the benefits will include a more attractive neighbourhood. Your property solicitor will offer more information.
