Local travel information:

Birkenhead Park train station is almost a mile from Oxton and Liverpool John Lennon Airport is 9 miles from Oxton. Howarden Airport is 15 miles away.

Oxton is very close at nearby at 1 mile off the M53 junction entry 3 Northbound.

The most convenient hospital for Oxton is Ashton House Birkenhead.

Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? I am trying to find discount conveyancing.

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees can increase your final bill. Charges found in your solicitor's terms should be fair and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

If we are purchasing in the parish of Poulton le Fylde, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. Chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Oxton. Are these properly investigated?

A.

Oxton property will be contaminated by a broad range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a property may be affected by local contaminants including air pollution.

Q.

We are buying on a former industrial site. Is the soil possibly contaminated?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Oxton. Data on many contaminants, such as ammonia, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Flood searches are assessed from archived records but when one considers recent weather changes like flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they the ideal way to find out enough about the ever changing Oxton flood risk area?

A.

Flood searches handled by a solicitor in Oxton will include a more detailed flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you remain still anxious why not try to contact a local resident.

Q.

How much time should the conveyancing process require, on average? We are buying in Oxton.

A.

For the majority of home movers, the length of time required to transfer a home can vary, according to a range of legal considerations such as if a property is leasehold or freehold. Homeward Legal ensure your sale, purchase or remortgage receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £388k home, what should we do?

A.

Contacting a proactive lawyer is the key to fast Oxton conveyancing. There are, however, numerous tasks you, as the buyer, can do to accelerate the process, including, pushing the lawyer to begin enquiries as soon as possible, promptly answering your lawyer's questions and organising your finances.

Q.

Oxton property solicitors conduct standard conveyancing searches when instructed to act for a property purchaser - what specific ones?

A.

If buying and getting a mortgage lender will expect at least the following for Oxton: Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and occasionally specific searches such as Chancel Repair Liability Search.
