We need to find fixed rate Moston conveyancing. Will we get a quote or and estimate?


This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may increase the final invoice. Additional charges should be reasonable and clear. They only come into force where your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


DIY conveyancing without the help of a conveyancing solicitor in Moston appears to be becoming possible as a seller of a flat. However, would it actually be a good idea ?


Legally speaking there are no arguments why a home buyer cannot carry out the bulk of the your own conveyancing on your own.

The truth is however that a Moston lawyer juggles a large number of functions such as chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries and ensuring the seller is the rightful owner most of which require experience.


Can you confirm which Moston lenders your lawyers are able to work with. Whose panels are you on?


Most lenders in Moston are on our Moston solicitors' panel. Moston lenders and mortgage specialists include S & J Mortgage Centres, 75 Cheshire St, Market Drayton, TF9 1PH, Vale Royal Mortgages & Insurance, High St, Winsford, CW7 2DP, and Bridgeways, Station Rd, Scholar Green, Stoke-On-Trent, ST7 3JZ.


At what point is it appropriate to get a solicitor to handle our transaction?


The short answer is, earlier is preferable, as the legal work can start straight away. Promptly instructing a firm for your Moston transaction can limit the risk of the transaction falling through.


We are buying on a new development brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like mercury?


Moston's local area has a history of contamination from industry, agriculture and the natural environment , like much of the UK. The local authority for Moston will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.


Where do I go about find out if the Moston conservation area I am buying in is being neglected?


Conservation areas in Moston are specified by the local Oldham planning authority, who police the state of the area including things like poorly maintained roads, addition of unsympathetic windows and building materials.

Following a campaign, English Heritage administer information of the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability of the area.


Is a survey sensible when we are buying a home?


It is recommended that most Moston buyers book a house survey if purchasing in Moston. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of concerns which affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work. These can include wet rot.


Does the lawyer in Moston tell me about the cost of the council tax on a Band A maisonette before completing on the purchase?


A property lawyer will consult with the council to ascertain the latest council tax band and rates, which should then be added to the conveyancing report on title. The correct rates for residents of Moston are tabled at the Oldham council site. On 11 August 2012 the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,032.00
  • Band B - £1,204.00
