Q.

We need to find affordable conveyancing. What do we need to consider?

A.

Many online and high street law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in small print. Extras listed in the small print needs to be clearly defined. Your conveyancing quote ought to list any disbursements.

Q.

My agent has referred a property solicitor which they often use. Will it be faster to use them?

A.

Many agents have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients, however, such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Old Swan?

A.

Old Swan is located in Liverpool City Council, Municipal Buildings, Dale St, Liverpool, L2 2DH, contact: 01512 333 000

Q.

I plan to buy a rectory in Liverpool St Paul. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish in which the house being purchased is found. In older areas of Old Swan, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Liverpool St Paul, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How many weeks can be planned for the conveyancing process usually require in Old Swan?

A.

Generally speaking, the time required to transact property can vary, with reference to a number of considerations. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas Homeward Legal aim to complete the process within six weeks.

Q.

What does a Old Swan property solicitor recommend if the home I hope to purchase is within a Liverpool conservation area which appears to have conspicuous PVC windows added?

A.

Local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by the solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will identify whether the property is within a designated conservation area and any evidence of council approval for modifications will be supplied.
