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 would the fees for my searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, a client is required to pay at most £249 for Ormskirk conveyancing searches. Common searches include a mining search and a local authority search.

Q.

Will my property lawyer in Ormskirk carry out personal or official searches on my property purchase?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will advise regarding the best course of action, depending on things like lender requirements. For personal searches, the lawyer might look for a local search company, for instance, Property Search Nationwide Ltd, 44 Winifred Lane, Aughton, Lancashire, L39 5DJ Tel: 01695 420 686.

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.

Could Ormskirk soil be contaminated by antimony?

A.

Ormskirk's local area has a history of contamination from industrial or agricultural, like much of the UK. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contaminants like petrol.

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.

I am taking out a mortgage in Ormskirk with Natwest, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly higher legal costs. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

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).
