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.

Are there many buyers in Runcorn gazumped?

A.

Gazumping arises when a property seller accepts an offer, only to reject it, opting for a greater offer. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. You should instruct your solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

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.

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.

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.

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.
