Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £573,000 property? We are trying to find an affordable Romiley conveyancing estimate.

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. A conveyancing quote should list costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements).

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel search if I am buying in Romiley by a rectory built in the 17th Century?

A.

Owners of property near to specific local church buildings are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Romiley?

A.

Romiley is located in Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, Town Hall, Edward Street, Stockport, SK1 3XE, contact: 0161 480 4949

Q.

What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Romiley?

Residential property in Romiley may have been contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, and factors such as a proximate telecommunications base station will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

What sort of environmental conveyancing searches as respects the uncertain risk of a flood at Greater Manchester will the conveyancing solicitor in Romiley carry out for a Victorian property we intend to buy?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor will apply for standard formal conveyancing searches that incorporate Romiley flood risk information.

Q.

How much does my conveyancing searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal, a client is required to pay at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and will not be included in the quoted conveyancing fees.

Q.

Does our professional conveyancing solicitor in Romiley report back to me about the cost of the council tax for a Band A townhouse before exchange?

A.

Your property lawyer will write to the relevant Stockport local council to discover the currently applicable council tax charges which will be set out in the title report. The latest council tax charges for Romiley are tabled at the Stockport local authority site. At the time of authoring, 22 November 2012, the different rates are:

Q.

My lender is Halifax, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Until recently, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. In some cases, lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, can act for all major lenders in the UK, ensuring that an additional conveyancer will not be required to act for your lender.
