Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £173,000 house? I am trying to find fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Many firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms.

Q.

Does my Thornton Cleveleys conveyancer conduct any property conveyancing searches on the Lancashire period detached property I am intending to buy?

A.

If taking out a mortgage the lender will expect a solicitor to get at least these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps specific local searches such as HS32.

Q.

Could my conveyancing fees cover any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

Homeward Legal do not charge any extra, hidden charges for sale or purchase conveyancing. Be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Liverpool St Michael, near Thornton Cleveleys?

A.

The lawyer could recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the home being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided

to charge chancel repairs on owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What can a Thornton Cleveleys property lawyer advise if the maisonette we hope to purchase is situated in a Wyre council conservation area that has unsympathetic new windows fitted to it?

A.

Wyre local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by a property lawyer during the legal process should establish the existence of suitable authorisation for any development to the property.

Q.

Which government authority is obliged for safeguarding the state of repair of conservation areas in Thornton Cleveleys?

A.

English Heritage have put together details about the condition of conservation areas in England as well as the exposure to standards slipping. Conservation are issues, for example building materials, non sympathetic doors or derelict buildings are handled by the local authority (Wyre).

Q.

Are the many designated conservation areas in Thornton Cleveleys likely to affect us?

A.

Areas deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as model housing estates, will be defined as conservation areas. Your solicitor will be able to provide more details and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

We are planning to buy a 1920's house. Is it that significant that conveyancing searches are carried out?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a set of questions requested by the purchaser's property lawyer with local and national organisations, such as a brine search. You should be aware that, conveyancing searches only deal with facets affecting the legal title.
