How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a 399,000 property?


Both high-street and online firms advertise cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the terms. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


How soon is it wise to get a conveyancing solicitor in Rainford?


Whether buying or selling, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be performed straight away. Some groups recommend postponing instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.


Will we need a chancel search? I am buying a Rainford flat on the same road as priory land.

Owners of property in Rainford may be subject to chancel repair liability. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church properties in the area where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Saints.


Which local authority is responsible for Rainford?


Rainford is located in St Helens Metropolitan Borough Council, Contact Centre, Wesley House, Corporation Street, Merseyside, WA10 1HF, contact: 01744 456 789


If Rainford land is found to be contaminated, can the soil be remedied?


Remediation of contaminated land in Rainford can often be possible, but costly. A Rainford specialist for example Rainford Turf Farms, Little Ferny Knoll Farm/Ferny Knoll Road, Rainford, St. Helens, WA11 7TQ can provide more information.


I have read about the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, we are questioning whether environmental searches may not be sufficient?


Your solicitor in Rainford will advise you to carry out flood risk searches if the first searches determine a any kind of Rainford area flood risk

It may be sensible to also contact a local resident for extra comfort.


Is a survey sensible when we are purchasing a property?


It is strongly suggested that most purchasers book a RICS surveyor. A wide range of defects affect a property, such as ground movement. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


Is a mining search paid to the conveyancer?


Fees and disbursements should be clearly stated on your quote, without any hidden charges in the terms and conditions. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.
