Q.

I need a fixed rate conveyancing estimate. What should we check?

A.

Numerous firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs can inflate the final bill. Extra costs included in terms and conditions needs to be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where your lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search? We are buying a house on the same street as parsonage land in Millom.

A.

Property owners in Millom may be subject to chancel repair liability. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Millom ecclesiastical properties include Holy Trinity, Holy Trinity Institute and St George.

Q.

I am planning to buy in Millom, is it necessary that 'conveyancing searches' are ordered?

A.

Searches are a bundle of questions ordered by the purchaser's conveyancing lawyer with a particular authority, which may include a gypsum search, and deal with the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

How can purchase conveyancing legal work need such a long time?

A.

The conveyancing process may take more time than budgeted. We appreciate how disruptive they may be and do our best to reduce the effect of these delays by chasing for prompt responses. Delays include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £783,000 house, how could we speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

The key to moving faster is to instruct a proactive property lawyer. There are, however, several things you can do to speed up your conveyancing, such as, requesting status updates from the property lawyer regularly, organising your finances and answering any queries raised by your property lawyer as soon as possible.

Q.

We are buying in Millom on a new-build ex-industrial site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste like manganese?

A.

Q.

If we plan to purchase near Millom, in the parish of Barton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Millom parish in which you are buying, a lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.
