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 is the council tax on a Fifties end of terrace property in Sale?

A.

Usually the conveyancer's title report should cover the appropriate Trafford council tax band. Council tax rates for Sale are set out in detail on the Trafford council website. At the time of authoring (08/07/2012) the different rates are:

  • Band A - £869.00
  • Band B - £1,014.00
  • Band C - £1,159.00
  • Band D - £1,303.00
  • Band E - £1,593.00
  • Band F - £1,883.00
  • Band G - £2,172.00
  • Band H - £2,607.00

Q.

Which environmental factors can impact land in Sale?

A.

Sale property may have been contaminated by several natural and human-influenced issues, such as infilled land and a proximate telecommunications base station. An environmental search will offer more detail. Contamination can be caused by Sale waste sites, including Lynn Avenue, M33 7BW.

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.

Q.

We are planning to buy a home. Is it that important that 'conveyancing searches' are performed?

A.

These searches are common collection of enquiries requested by the conveyancing solicitor, for example a local authority search. These searches provide much needed information, however they cover solely issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

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.

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?

A.

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.
