Q.

I need to find a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. What do I need to check for?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary homeowners fail to check. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on your conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Would the home's fixtures and fittings form include items like tables?

A.

In general, fixtures are fixed elements, such as built-in wardrobes to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing items, like tables. The need to clarify this is regularly overlooked, making it essential that the list of fixtures and fittings to be sold with the property is agreed early.

Q.

What issues assist with aiming for a fast completion?

A.

The key to a faster move is to employing a proactive and experienced solicitor. There are various jobs you, as the purchaser, can do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • keeping in regular contact with your solicitor
  • promptly answering your solicitor's questions
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can

Q.

In relation to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, we are apprehensive that conveyancing searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

Property environmental searches applied for by a conveyancer in Seaforth will include a more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still apprehensive you could make enquiries with a neighbour.

Q.

Holmesdale Building Society will be our mortgage lender, what do I need to check?

A.

A small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for buyers. We will act on behalf of the majority of lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

In the next few we are anticipating to move out of our detached building on the outskirts of Seaforth into a bigger flat in Rainhill what is the best point to instruct a home removal firm?

A.

Homeward Legal tend to advise that home buyers and sellers wait organising removals until formal exchange of contracts as an agreed moving date will not have been settled.

For a local Merseyside company A1 Clearances, Sandy Road Service Station/31 35 Sandy Rd, Liverpool, L21 3TN Call: 07951 161421.

Of large Seaforth mortgage lenders, who have joined your panel?

My wife and I are planning to buy in Seaforth. Are there many conservation areas in the area?
