Local information:

Rochdale is close at inside 2m of the M62 junction entry 20 Eastbound.

Rochdale's nearest airport is Eccles, Barton Aerodrome Airport (14 miles). Manchester Terminals 1 & 3 Airport is 18 miles, Manchester Terminal 2 Airport is 18 miles and Eccles Airport is 14 miles away. Rochdale's nearest station is Castleton at 2 miles.

Rochdale, Highfield is a nearby hospital.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

Myself and my partner are interested in purchasing a building in Rochdale. Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

Areas considered to be of historical or architectural value, like fishing villages, may be recognised as areas of conservation. Middleton Town Centre, Castleton (South) and Birtle Borough are among the conservation areas in Rochdale. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail.

Q.

Do I need to get a surveying expert to review our home purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal heavily advise that all purchasers book a house survey. A wide range of problems can affect a property, which include chimney defects and settlement, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Having heard about the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are asking if flood risk searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

Property conveyancing searches applied for by the Rochdale property solicitor will also include the more thorough flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are still worried you can always contact a local resident.

Q.

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?

A.

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.

Q.

Is it insensible to do the conveyancing myself on our own.

A.

If you wish to have a stab you can feasibly take care of the majority of the if not all of the your own conveyancing without approaching an experienced property lawyer in Rochdale. Essentially DIY lawyers are not covered by appropriate insurance that solicitors are duty bound to pay for.

Q.

We are using a local lender in Greater Manchester, and need to know which Rochdale lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Whose panels are your solicitors on?

A.

Of lenders with offices nearby Rochdale, Homeward Legal work with the vast majority. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Rochdale include Co-operative Bank PLC, 110 Yorkshire St, Rochdale, OL16 1JY, Dell Lynne, 7 Shawclough Trading Est/Shawclough Rd, Rochdale, OL12 6ND, and Money Talks, 40 Tweedale St, Rochdale, OL11 1HH.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Are there any additional charges?

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden costs whatsoever. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which they will not be bound to.
