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.

Do we need to plan for gazumping?

A.

The practice of rejecting an offer which has been accepted after a second buyer has made a better offer is called gazumping. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of gazumping. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can is a key first step to reducing this risk.

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.

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.

Do we need to be concerned about fixtures and fittings?

A.

Usually, fixtures are fixed elements, such as radiators to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are free-standing. In order to avoid later issues, a fixtures and fittings form should be completed and will save much anxiety later in the conveyancing process..

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:

  • Band A - £885.00

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.

We are buying a 1950s property within a conservation area. Where does one get more data about the standard of repair?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have created information of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement. Conservation areas in Stretford are set up by the local authority (Manchester) who preside over conservation area concerns from public spaces to the inhibition of vacant buildings.
