There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am trying to find discount conveyancing.


Confusion over this point affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Any additional fees should be reasonable.

What do conveyancing searches refer to?


Searches are a typical pack of enquiries performed on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, and will only cover issues with the property's title.


Do your solicitors do residential property auction conveyancing in Prestwich?


All of our property conveyancers do frequently take instructions from auction buyers and sellers. We often advocate bidders to appoint a local conveyancing company well before the date of the auction to allow adequate time for a full review of the sellers pack.

Subsequently, following the property auction, a solicitor is fully prepared to finalise the conveyancing in less than 28 days as usually required by the terms of sale.


I plan to buy a home in the parish of Prestwich. Is a chancel search important?


Whether you are buying a house in Prestwich or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. In Prestwich's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


What property should a Prestwich conveyancing solicitor carry out when acting on a Prestwich building?


The regular conveyancing protocol will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search, Environment Search and Coal Mining Search (Con29M) and perhaps special local Prestwich searches, which might include Subsidence.
