Q.

We are trying to find a cheap Rainhill solicitor to own a property. What do we need to consider?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may increase the final bill. Any extra costs found in the small print should be fair and clearly defined and only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

When buying a renovated flat in the boundary of conservation area in Rainhill. How does one uncover more information in regards to the state of upkeep?

A.

Conservation areas are created by the local authority (St Helens) who are responsible for everything from what can be developed to advertising hoardings.

English Heritage have assembled a detailed list on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to the area falling into disrepair.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Rainhill?

A.

Rainhill is located in Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Customer Contact Centre, Municipal Buildings, Cherryfield Drive, Kirkby, L32 1TX, Call: 0151 489 6000

Q.

When in the process do I need to instruct a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Rainhill, the earlier, the better. Some sources suggest holding off instruction until a chain is completed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Could our property legal fees hide any hidden costs?

A.

No. We will not charge any hidden fees. It may be that a large volume of additional work is necessary, but any fees for this work will only be incurred with your knowledge.

Q.

In about four weeks we are likely to be finally moving from our detached property in Rainhill to our new home in Oxton , what is the best point to book a removals firm?

A.

The ideal way is to hold off making arrangements with removals until such time as you have contractually agreed the date that occurs after exchange of contracts.

Try Removal Team, Unit 17 Lea Green Business Pk/Eurolink, St. Helens, WA9 4TR Telephone: 01744 811822 or MS Van Services, Redstones/Mill Lane, Rainhill, Prescot, L35 6NH on 07912 020976.

Q.

How much can the cost of our searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, a purchase conveyancing client in Rainhill charged at a maximum £249 for the standard search bundle. They are paid out to a 3rd party, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

Would acquiring a property survey be required if we are buying any property in Rainhill?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that you arrange a house surveyor when buying in Rainhill. There are a wide range of issues which have a negative impact on a property. These include blocked drains.
