How do I get a cheap solicitor in Rochdale to sell property?


Many online and high street conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any additional costs listed in the terms should be reasonable.


The estate agent we're using in Didsbury has put forward a property lawyer which they often use. Will it be cheaper to use them?


Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon route for buyers to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.


Is your solicitor team set up to move fast on the conveyancing of auction properties in Rochdale?


We deal with auctions throughout the UK and regularly do the legal conveyancing bidders at auction. Our specialist property lawyers have acted for countless successful bidders at regional auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award

Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Wise buyers tend to pick the conveyancing firm as soon as possible to allow for a full report of the legal papers well before the property auction.

After the auction a prepared property lawyer must be focused on carry out the conveyancing in under 28 days after exchange of contracts as typically required by the terms and conditions of sale.


At what point should we instruct a solicitor to handle our transaction?


Whether buying or selling, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor early can limit the risk of your transaction stalling.

Residential property in Rochdale is contaminated by numerous natural causes and human activities. Issues including proximity to waste sites will be investigated during the conveyancing process. Contamination can be caused by Rochdale waste sites, including Arundel Avenue, OL11 1QL.


What searches should a Rochdale solicitor carry out when buying a Rochdale property?


The normal procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental and Coal Mining and, depending on certain criteria, unique particular for example Land charges full Search.


Alliance and Leicester is our lender, what will I need to check?


House buyers need to be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal can act for the majority of mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.
