Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? I need to find an affordable conveyancing estimate.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic affects many homeowners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges may be added into the terms and conditions which homeowners may have not read carefully The conveyancing quote should also state the disbursements to be paid.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately fitted unseemly windows on the house in Runcorn which I think might possibly break conservation area criteria

A.

A property lawyer will make enquiries to confirm whether your proposed purchase is within a conservation area and whether any modifications have the appropriate permission.

In the event that no local authority consents be available the solicitor will give you professional advice on the alternatives e.g. purchasing an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

What causes the sale conveyancing process in Runcorn to take weeks more than planned?

A.

The conveyancing process in Runcorn could experience delays even in the best of circumstances. Sometimes, the reasons are out of a solicitor's control. Homeward Legal do our best to minimise their burden by pushing all parties involved.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like aerials and satellite dishes?

A.

Commonly, there is no strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. This is frequently not considered, making agreement of a comprehensive list of included items so essential.

Q.

We are buying a an extended flat in the boundary of conservation areas. How do we locate more details on the present standard of repair?

A.

Local Runcorn conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Halton) who are responsible for conservation area concerns from area development to the avoidance of excessive road signs.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced details about the condition of conservation areas along with the risk of getting worse.

Q.

Should we instruct the property lawyer referred by my local agent?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

Which actual property conveyancing searches does a Runcorn conveyancing solicitor carry out for a Runcorn property?

A.

The routine procedure will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environment Search and Cheshire Brine Search, and possibly particular searches, like Index Map Search (SIM).

Q.

Standard Life Mortgages is our mortgage lender, is there anything I need to check?

A.

Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of all large UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
