We are trying to find a cheap solicitor to purchase a home. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many solicitors advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges will be included in the terms and conditions. Extra costs found in terms and conditions ought to be clearly defined.

How much time does conveyancing legal work need, in your opinion? The property is also local.

Q.

A.

A vital step in the legal due diligence procedure of buying a property involves your lawyer applying for environmental searches that set out detail on the Parbold historical flood risk.

Q.

How can we find out whether a property is in a designated conservation area?

Conservation areas characterise neighbourhoods of historical merit. You may wish to contact the local council for further information, but your solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without the help of a Parbold solicitor appears to be becoming possible when buying and selling a home. Would it really be practicable ?

A.

Theoretically speaking there is absolutely no reason why a home mover cannot decide to complete the conveyancing on your own.

Q.

Do we need to be worried about fixtures and fittings?

A.

Property buyers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding what fixtures and fittings should be included in a purchase. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this makes resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.

Q.

What can a Parbold conveyancing solicitor recommend if the house is located in a West Lancashire council conservation area which has ill-suited windows fitted to it?

A.

West Lancashire council Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by your Parbold conveyancing solicitor during the conveyancing process will check the existence of suitable consent for development to the property. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Parbold conveyancer will advise you of the best alternatives, which include requesting from the planning authority or getting covered by an indemnity policy.

Apparently, vanadium (V) soil contamination may be an issue in Parbold. Can you advise?
