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 your solicitors do the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Sefton?

A.

Our recommended conveyancing firms in Sefton commonly get instructed by bidders at auction. Solicitors always encourage buyers to formally appoint a residential solicitor in advance of the auction to allow adequate time for a full investigation.

After the date of the auction, a lawyer is geared up to get through the legal work in under 28 days as conventionally required by the terms of sale.

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 buying a property where the seller has unfortunately installed unsuitable satellite dishes to the maisonette which might break the West Birkdale conservation area criteria.

A.

A property lawyer is required to verify if the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have requisite consents from the Sefton authority.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search? I am purchasing a Sefton property near an ecclesiastical parish.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Sefton Church council. Several sources are used to determine liability in Sefton, including maps of Sefton's parish boundaries. Churches in the local area which may give rise to chancel liability include Parish Church.

Q.

Should I instruct a conveyancing solicitor put forward by my local agent?

A.

Many agents in Morecambe have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients to them. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

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.

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.
