Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a residence?

A.

Lack of clarity over this issue affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the terms which unwary buyers fail to check.

Q.

What makes Sale purchase conveyancing to seem to be so slow? Should we be worried?

A.

Conveyancing will occasionally be delayed even where there is no chain. The delays are beyond the solicitors' power. We do our best to minimise their consequences by using fast search providers.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Sale?

A.

Sale is located in Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council, Trafford Town Hall, Talbot Road, Stretford, Manchester, M32 0TH, Tel: 0161 912 2000

Q.

Conveyancing and environmental searches are assessed from archived information and when you factor in recent weather changes for instance the flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, are they sufficient to ascertain sufficient information about the Sale flood risk area?

Property conveyancing searches applied for by the solicitor in Sale should also include the far more specialist Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still concerned it may be worth trying to approach a neighbour or local resident or nearby Greater Manchester flood repair builder - try: David Hopton Ltd, 9 Beeston Rd, Sale, M33 5AQ Tel: 0161-973 9269.

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Sale?

A.

Gazumping arises when a property seller agrees to one buyer's offer and then dismisses it in favour of a better offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a danger. You should instruct an efficient solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

We are selling in Sale, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any hidden costs?

A.

Regrettably, buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. We never charge any extra, hidden charges. Be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

Is a property survey sensible when purchasing property?

A.

It is highly recommended that Sale buyers book a RICS survey. There can be a wide range of defects which will impact a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, including unsafe chimney circulation and severe weathering.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £835,000 home, what should we do?

A.

As is often argued, finding a communicative conveyancing solicitor is key a fast transaction. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
