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.

Has soil in Sale been contaminated by vanadium?

A.

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Sale, topsoil contamination is inescapable. Also considering issues such as perchlorate and groundwater contaminants like detergents, contaminants affecting Sale property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Eccles has referred the solicitors firm. Must we instruct them?

A.

Agent referrals are a common practice way for home buyers to find a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

What type of local searches into the risk of a flood in the Greater Manchester region will the conveyancing solicitor in Sale actually conduct?

A key part of the conveyancing process carried out when buying a property involves the conveyancer carrying out environmental searches that give you some details with regard to the local Sale flood risk.

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.

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.

At what point should I arrange a solicitor in Sale?

A.

In simple terms, earlier is preferable. Some suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

What specific property conveyancing searches should the conveyancer in Sale get for a Sale home?

A.

The conventional legal protocol is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Coal Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, unique particular for instance Anti Money Laundering Search.
