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.

Do we need to use the solicitor that usually works with by our agent?

A.

The agent will often recommend a conveyancer, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

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.

What type of conveyancing searches in respect to the uncertain risk of flooding in the Merseyside region will my conveyancer in Oxton be able to apply for?

A.

An important part of the conveyancing protocol involves the conveyancing solicitor making an application for conveyancing searches (environmental) that provide you with details about the Oxton area flood risk.

Q.

Myself and my partner are interested in purchasing in Oxton. How can we check if the property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

These areas conserve neighbourhoods of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Your property solicitor will be able to offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

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.

How soon should I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Oxton?

A.

In the majority of situations, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor to handle your Oxton conveyancing early for a purchase means that you will the details of your Oxton solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.
