Q.

We are trying to find a property solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. What do we need to consider?

A.

Several solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges may pad your final bill. A conveyancing quote should, in addition, define third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Lloyds TSB, what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, though, will act for all large CML-approved lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

In regards to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, I am concerned that property conveyancing searches won't be sufficient?

Environmental searches handled by your Skelmersdale conveyancer should include a more informative Landmark flood search if required.

If you remain concerned you can always contact a local resident.

Q.

When do we need to instruct a solicitor in Skelmersdale?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Promptly instructing a conveyancing solicitor for a sale allows information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Skelmersdale solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

Am I likely to be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where an offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the property seller and then selecting a greater offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Skelmersdale?

A.

Skelmersdale is located in West Lancashire Borough Council, PO Box 16, 52 Derby Street, Ormskirk, West Lancashire, L39 2DF, Tel: 01695 577 177

Q.

Might charges for the conveyancing include any additional charges?

A.

No. Our solicitors never hide any extra, hidden fees. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

The owner looks to have installed unseemly cladding on the home in Skelmersdale which might overstep local conservation area rules

A.

A property lawyer will always establish whether the property is located within a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have requisite consent from the West Lancashire council.
