Q.

On the purchase of a 352k home, what will be the fees? We need to find fixed rate Stalybridge conveyancing.

A.

Both high-street and online firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Extra costs included in terms and conditions should be clearly defined and be applied only where your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your quote should also state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursments).The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Does your company handle the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Stalybridge?

A.

Homeward Legal is very competent with bidders at auction. Normally unusual properties for example landlocked houses, are sold at property auctions and these will want extrabefore completing. Homeward Legal therefore strongly advocate that purchasers choose a SRA regulated property lawyer prior to the date of the auction to allow sufficient time for a detailed report.

Subsequently, immediately after the actual auction, your lawyer will be prepared for conclude the conveyancing within 28 days as typically required by the auction conditions.

Which local authority looks after Stalybridge?

A.

Q.

What sort of environmental conveyancing searches concerning the risk of local flooding in the Greater Manchester area will a Stalybridge lawyer actually conduct on a residential building I am going to buy?

A.

Your residential property conveyancing lawyer applies for formal conveyancing searches that will include Stalybridge flood risk area data. Also as an additional measure a Stalybridge property lawyer will sometimes advise a more local Stalybridge search.

Q.

We are buying a period investment flat in the boundary of Stalybridge conservation area, where can I find data relating to the present state of upkeep of the Stalybridge conservation area?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created details about the condition of conservation areas in addition to the exposure to deterioration or improvement. Local Stalybridge conservation areas are created by the local Tameside planning authority, who manage conservation area concerns from public spaces to ugly highway signs.

Q.

Will our legal charges include any hidden fees?

A.

Our solicitors never charge any hidden extra charges for standard conveyancing legal work. A Homeward Legal quote is an accurate price.

Q.

As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, we are asking if flood risk searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

Flood risk searches carried out by the Stalybridge lawyer should also include a far more thorough search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain anxious why not contact a local resident or local Greater Manchester flood repair expert, e.g. Strawberry Construction Ltd, 105 Ridge Hill Lane, Stalybridge, SK15 1DB Tel: 0161-303 2824.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' include?

A.

There is not a clear definition of fixtures and fittings, potentially leading to anger after a sale completes and some items are missing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.
