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.

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.

Will we need a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Flixton, near Sefton?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. Although some parish councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where chancel repair

fees have not been paid previously will remain liability-free for new owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me for a Thirties Band an apartment in Sefton?

A.

Your relevant council tax band will commonly be identified within the report on title along with the local authority. The latest council tax charges for homes in Sefton are listed at the Sefton council site. At the time of authoring, 22 September 2012, rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £997.00
  • Band B - £1,163.00
  • Band C - £1,329.00
  • Band D - £1,495.00
  • Band E - £1,827.00
  • Band F - £2,159.00

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 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.

How much time does conveyancing to transfer residential property take in Sefton?

A.

The amount of time taken to buy or sell a residence is not wholly predictable, based on a number of concerns. We work hard to ensure your sale, purchase or remortgage is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.
