Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor in Ormskirk for selling a leasehold house?

A.

Lack of clarity over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

What length of time will I allow for the legal work to purchase a flat often need, on average?

A.

The time needed to transact a property may vary, with reference to a number of issues. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas our solicitors will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.

Q.

The current owner has fitted dormer windows to the property in Ormskirk which I think may defy nearby conservation area criteria

A.

Your instructed lawyer should establish if the property is inside a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have appropriate permission from the local authority.

Q.

What is the best point to we set up the removal company?

A.

Our recommendation is to wait before arranging a removal company until all parties have formally agreed an absolute completion date that occurs after contracts are signed. Local removals companies include West Lancs Movers Ltd, 25 Linaker Dr, Halsall, Ormskirk, L39 8SB Call: 07503 744404.

Q.

What makes purchase conveyancing legal work to require so much time and effort?

A.

Conveyancing may take more time. We strive to minimise the impact of these delays whenever we can do so by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

We plan to complete on around 23rd October. What will be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax rates?

A.

The Stamp Duty you pay is calculated based on the valuation. It is £0 on a £82000 property (information accurate October 2012).

Q.

I am planning on buying a renovated investment property in one of the Ormskirk conservation area. Where does one find more details in relation to the state of upkeep?

A.

Local conservation areas are set up by West Lancashire who administer everything from the historic layout of roads to the inhibition of ugly shop fronts. English Heritage have created a list on the state of conservation areas in England along with the trend of the area.

Q.

Will we need a building survey?

A.

It is strongly recommended that the majority of buyers arrange a property surveyor to perform a survey when you intend to buy in Ormskirk. There can be a range of defects that can negatively affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, such as chimney defects.
