Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Stretford for a £744,000 residence?

A.

Various solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We have found a multitude of online articles about DIY conveyancing. Do we necessarily need to instruct a lawyer in Stretford ?

A.

Theoretically speaking there is no reason at all why a home buyer cant look after the legal work yourself. That said, a Stretford lawyer is in charge of a huge number of functions e.g. approving completion statements or representing the mortgage lender most of which need a qualified solicitor. Moreover solicitors are required by the SRA to take out insurance to safeguard you from any professional errors.

Q.

For what reason does purchase conveyancing require months?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property will occasionally be drawn out. Homeward Legal do our best to minimise the effect of these delays wherever it is feasible by pushing all parties involved. Reasons for delay can include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Stretford?

A.

Stretford is located in Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council, Trafford Town Hall, Talbot Road, Stretford, Manchester, M32 0TH, phone: 0161 912 2000

Q.

Is soil in Stretford contaminated by cobalt (Co)?

A.

Stretford industrial or agricultural can cause soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including food-processing waste.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a period converted building in Stretford?

A.

As a rule the title report will cover the Manchester council tax band. The latest tax charges for properties in Stretford are published at the Manchester local authority site. Currently, 26/08/2012, rates for all bands are:

Q.

We are anticipating to move from our semi detached house just outside Stretford into a bigger flat in Stockport , at what stage to appoint a removals firm?

A.

Your solicitor would tend to advocate that you hold off organising removals until after exchange of contracts because a final moving date wont have been confirmed. There are many local and national companies including Low Cost Removals, 3 Hattons Ct, Stretford, Manchester, M32 0AP Tel: 0161 330 4762 or Pickfords Moving & Storage Centre, Unit 5 7 The Furrows, Stretford, Manchester, M32 0SZ Call: 0161 870 9120.

Q.

If I am buying in Stretford near a church constructed in the 1600s, will I need a chancel liability search?

A.

The result of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must subsidise church repairs. Several sources are used to determine liability in Stretford, including local maps. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include All Saints, St Matthew's and St Peter.
