Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many conveyancers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Any fees listed in terms of engagement should be fair. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

A.

A conveyancer will speak to the appropriate council to find out the latest council tax charges which will be included in the conveyancer's title report. The latest council tax charges for properties in Swinton are tabled at the Salford local authority website. Currently, 05 September 2012, band rates are:

Q.

We ideally need to exchange on the selling of our auctioned leasehold apartment within 5 weeks, are you fast property lawyers in Swinton ?

A.

Sometimes property lawyers can be far too slow which brings huge amounts of pressure to the property conveyancing process.

Homeward Legal only allocate you to conveyancing property lawyers which are customer focused and always communicate to the whole home buyer and seller chain . In addition our solicitors are specifically chosen as they utilise modern conveyancing case management and IT systems to push through your sale quickly.

Q.

As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are wondering if conveyancing searches (environmental) aren't thorough enough?

A.

Environmental searches conducted by your Swinton property solicitor will also include the more in depth search (Landmark) if required.

If you are still nervous you could attempt to visit a close neighbour.

Q.

Our mortgage lender will be Intelligent Finance, what do we need to be aware of?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers should consider that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in higher conveyancing costs for buyers if their property lawyer cannot act for the lender. We, though, are able to act for most lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Are searches fees or disbursements?

A.

Some conveyancers attempt to pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It may not be clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and whether it should be included. These costs are disbursements not fees, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

What sort of searches about the uncertain risk of floods in the Greater Manchester area will a conveyancing solicitor in Swinton apply for?

A.

A necessary step in the conveyancing process of purchasing a property involves a conveyancer carrying out environmental searches that go in detail regarding Swinton flood risk area.
