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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If we are intending to buy near Runcorn, in the parish of Shocklach, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In older areas of Runcorn, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

How do I check that a property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Parts of Runcorn considered be of architectural merit, like country house estates, may be registered as areas of conservation. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to offer more information and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works, regarding specific conservation areas in Runcorn.

Q.

Is Runcorn soil possibly contaminated by cadmium (Cd)?

A.

There are considerable regulations to control soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination and industrial storage.
