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


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.


Do you recommend that I get a chancel search? We are buying a property by a rectory in Ormskirk.


The outcome of a landmark case in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Ormskirk church lands where chancel liability may apply include Parish Church.

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.


Is Homeward Legal set up to handle fast completions on the conveyancing for auction properties in Ormskirk?


Our team specialise in auctions and do frequently act for buyers and sellers at auction. Our conveyancers have worked for numerous successful bidders at national and local auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Shrewd bidders tend to select the firm as quickly as possible so there is time for a full investigation of the auction pack before the date of the auction.

Subsequently, following the auction day itself, your conveyancing solicitor must be fully prepared to carry out the legal work within 28 days after exchange of contracts, a requirement of auction conditions.


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


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.


As a consequence of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are apprehensive that flood risk searches might not be sufficient?


Flood risk searches applied for by your property lawyer in Ormskirk should also include the more informative search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still concerned it may be worth trying to approach a local resident.
