Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates for a £666,000 house?

A.

Numerous property lawyers offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. The quote should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid. Chargeswhich are listed in the terms should be clearly defined. They come into force only if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks , 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.

We are going to a property auction and will need to ensure fast conveyancing, what can we do to accelerate our transaction?

A.

As is often reported, contacting a proactive conveyancing solicitor is the key to fast Morecambe conveyancing. There are, in addition, a number of tasks you as the purchaser could do. These include:

  • keeping in regular contact with your conveyancing solicitor
  • completing all forms as soon as possible
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can

Q.

Would the fixtures and fittings form include tables and chairs?

A.

Usually, fixtures are fixed to walls, floors or ceilings and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing items, like free-standing kitchen appliances. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.

Q.

I am purchasing a renovated property in one of the conservation area in Morecambe. How do I find information relating to the current state of upkeep?

A.

Conservation areas are specified by Lancaster who preserve things like upkeep of paths to the prevention of new developments. English Heritage now maintain records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England as well as the trend of the area.

Q.

The vendor appears to have fitted unsuitable stone cladding to the maisonette in Morecambe which we think might possibly break nearby conservation area guidelines

A.

The property lawyer to verify whether the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the appropriate consent from the local planning authority. In the event that no appropriate permissions be provided your solicitor will recommend all options such as purchasing an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective consent.

Q.

Do your solicitors a lot of experience at the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Morecambe?

A.

Yes - Our CQS solicitors commonly work for auction buyers and sellers. Lawyers usually suggest purchasers to appoint a residential conveyancing solicitor well before the property auction date to allow enough time for a detailed investigation of the auction legal papers. Immediately following the auction day itself, your conveyancing solicitor will be geared up to quickly conclude all of the legal work in under 28 days after exchange as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

Q.

We are going to be moving from our terraced property in Morecambe into a newer dwelling in Lytham , when to book a removal company?

A.

Best advice is for home movers to hold off a removal van until you and the other side has set an absolute home moving date which happens after contracts have exchanged. For a local Lancashire company Man With A Van, 166 Fairfield Rd, Heysham, Morecambe, LA3 1LS Call: 01524 858323 or Edmondson C & Son Ltd, Mellishaw La, Morecambe, LA3 3FB Telephone: 01524 413714.

Q.

Derbyshire Building Society will be our lender - is there anything I need to check?

A.

Until recently, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean greater conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of all large mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.
