Q.

We need a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. What do we need to check for?

A.

Numerous solicitors offer cheap conveyancing. However extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Extra charges included in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How much can our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, you are expected to pay at most £249 for conveyancing searches. Commonly ordered searches include an environmental search and a local authority search.

Q.

Is it advisable that we get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing a Partington flat conversion close by a 1400s 'parson's close'.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Partington Church council. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church properties in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Mary.

Q.

Should we employ a firm of solicitors that works with by my agent?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common practice route for buyers to find a solicitor, however, these referrals need to be considered carefully, as some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Which environmental factors will affect land in Partington, and should they be an issue?

A.

A wide range of contaminants may impair residential property in Partington, and factors including proximity to waste sites will be detailed in an appropriate search.

Q.

I have found a growing number books all about DIY conveyancing for example A Practical Approach to Commercial Conveyancing and Property. Do I actually need to instruct a Partington conveyancer ?

A.

There is no argument why a buyer cant take care of the legal work unaided.

That said, a Partington lawyer is in charge of a huge array of skilled tasks such as chasing outstanding papers or ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors most of which need training.

Moreover legal firms will obtain professional indemnity insurance to shield you from any losses you encounter.

Q.

We are purchasing a 1960's property. Do we need property searches?

A.

Searches are common pack of questions carried out in the interest of the purchaser, such as a chancel search. Buyers in Partington should consider that, conveyancing searches will only cover the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

First Active is going to be our mortgage lender - what do I need to know?

A.

Buyers should consider that some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for home buyers. We, fortunately, are able to act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
