Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We need to find a discount conveyancing quote in Sefton.

A.

Several conveyancers purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees may inflate your solicitor's invoice. Extra costs found in the terms should be fair and clearly defined and come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do I need to get a property survey?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that home buyers in Sefton order a RICS survey. Many problems have a negative impact on a property. These can include blocked drains. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Myself and my partner are interested in purchasing a residence in Sefton. Can we check that the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas detail local areas defined as being of historical merit. Conservation areas in Sefton include West Birkdale. The advantages of these restrictions will include protection for trees and other flora, but they may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. Your property solicitor will offer more information.

Q.

Which of the lender panels in Sefton are you on?

A.

Most lenders in Sefton are on our panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Kemp & Co, 498 Rice La, Liverpool, L9 2BW, Mountbatten Financial Management, 57-61 Liverpool Rd South, Liverpool, L31 7BN, and Mortgage Advice Bureau, 74 Mill La, West Derby, Liverpool, L12 7JB. The solicitor handling your conveyancing transaction can carry out any relevant lender-imposed searches or checks.

Q.

I've had a conveyancing quote from you. May we end up paying any hidden fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any additional costs regardless of circumstances. A Homeward Legal quote is an honest and accurate fee.

Q.

We are on a very limited budget - Will doing DIY conveyancing without a conveyancing solicitor in Sefton help save any money?

A.

In theory, there is no reason at all why you should not look after the your own conveyancing unaided. That said, a property lawyer is in charge of a long list of exercises including chasing outstanding papers or dealing with requisition on os1 some of which need a skilled professional. In any event however, firms and their solicitors are required by their regulator to possess the correct insurance to shield you from any professional errors on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

We are buying on a new-build brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like tin (Sn)?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, some very localised cases of contamination in Sefton may pose unacceptably high risk. Other sources of contaminated land include herbicides and groundwater contaminants like sewage.

Q.

Having heard about the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, I am questioning if flood risk searches might not be exacting enough?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches carried out by the Sefton lawyer should also include a more thorough Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still anxious make enquiries with a local resident.
