Blackpool International Airport is 9 miles from Southport. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is 23 miles and away. Southport's closest station is Southport.

Southport, Southport & Formby General is the most convenient hospital for Southport.

Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We need fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Many property lawyers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are often hiding in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Your quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

If I am intending to purchase in the parish of Standish, should we get a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Southport parish in which you are purchasing, the property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Southport, chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a house where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What kind of local environmental searches as respects the uncertain risk of flooding in Merseyside will a property solicitor in Southport be able to conduct for a Fifties property I am wanting to buy?

A.

A conveyancer conducts formal conveyancing and environmental searches, which include Southport flood risk area data. Depending on the results, the solicitor in Southport could suggest a more in-depth local Southport area flood risk search.

Q.

How much time should the conveyancing process usually take?

A.

The amount of time required to transfer property may vary, according to a handful of issues affecting the property including if a property is leasehold or freehold. With our specialist solicitors, every purchase is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

What are 'conveyancing searches' in regard to?

A.

These searches are a prescribed set of enquiries performed for the buyer, for example a chancel liability search. These searches will only cover legal-related matters.

Q.

The property seller appears to have added unfitting doors to the flat in Southport which may exclude conservation area guidelines

A.

A solicitor will carry out searches identify whether the property is inside a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have appropriate consent from the Sefton planning authority.

Q.

In 1 month we are looking to be finally moving from our terraced building in Southport to a new dwelling in Sefton at what stage to book a house removal firm?

A.

The ideal way is for home movers to delay arranging removals until such time as both sides have firmed up an absolute move date that generally occurs once signing of contracts. If you are looking for a local company try Southport & Formby Ltd, 55 Hoghton St, Southport, PR9 0PG Telephone: 01704 501222 or McDowell Removals & Storage, Isle Of Wight/Stamford Rd, Southport, PR8 4EX on 01704 567411.

Q.

What will the council tax cost for a Sixties Band G apartment in Southport?

A.

The relevant band will frequently be detailed within the conveyancer's title report, as well as by the local authority. Council tax charges for Southport are detailed online at the Sefton council site. Currently, 18 August 2012, the rates are:

  • Band A - £997.00
