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.

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.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

I am purchasing a £928k. What should be calculated for stamp duty?

A.

The Stamp Duty that will be due is dependent on the home's value. On a £928k home, stamp duty will be £37120.

Q.

In what ways does a Prestwich conveyancer report back on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Prestwich area for a Victorian property we are buying?

A.

The lawyer will apply for environmental searches that will include Prestwich historical flood risk information. A significantly more involved flood history/risk search, for instance the Landmark search, could possibly be recommended by a qualified Prestwich lawyer if the results of the enviro. search indicate any risk of flooding.

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.

Which local authority is responsible for Prestwich?

A.

Prestwich is located in Bury Metropolitan Borough Council, Town Hall, Knowsley Street, Bury, Lancashire, BL9 0SW, contact: 0161 253 5000

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.
