Q.

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

A.

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. Applicable disbursements should be included on any quote for conveyancing in PrestwichHomeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

What causes sale conveyancing work to take such a long time?

A.

Prestwich conveyancing could be delayed even in the best of circumstances. The delays are on occasion unfortunately beyond a solicitor's power. Homeward Legal seek to minimise their impact whenever it is possible by driving the sale or purchase forward. Common delays include issues elsewhere in a chain.

Q.

Is a postage, photocopying and phone calls fee a fee or disbursement?

A.

Unfortunately, some firms attempt to pass off extra costs as necessary disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it ought to be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

I am hoping to be moving from our terraced property in Prestwich to our next home in Oldham , what is the best point to choose a house removal firm?

A.

Best practice is to hold off a removal firm until you have settled a home moving date which occurs after final contracts are signed. Try Quick Move, 2 Beechcroft/Sedgley Pk Rd, Prestwich, Manchester, M25 0AL Call: 0161 773 5221 or Lloyd G, 28 Russell St, Prestwich, Manchester, M25 1FG Telephone: 0161 798 6575.

Q.

When you are purchasing by a rectory manor in Prestwich, will I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Chancel repair liability can require some property owners to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of nearby church land. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Church of England properties in the area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Andrew's Church, St Gabriel, St Hilda and St Margaret.

Q.

Do your solicitors do residential property auction conveyancing in Prestwich?

A.

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.

Q.

Should I make use of the law firm that works with by our estate agent in Cheadle?

A.

It is common for agents to refer a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.
