Do I need to opt for a solicitor put forward by the estate agent in Timperley?
Many agents in Timperley have arrangements with solicitors where they refer conveyancing clients to them, however, such referrals should be thoroughly considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
If I am intending to purchase near Timperley, in the parish of Timperley, do we need a chancel search?
A property lawyer could recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Timperley, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
Are the doctors/dentists/schools oversubscribed in the area I want to move to?
Although your conveyancing solicitor may have some personal knowledge of these critical factors, they are not part of the conveyancing process, so will not form part of the contract.
If aspects such as how likely you’ll get into a surgery or school are important to you, it is worth factoring this in at an early stage when you are researching the areas into which you want to move. You can also glean some facts from the estate agent representing properties where you want to move, too. You might also like to contact the surgeries or schools for further information.

When in the process is it wise to arrange a solicitor?
In simple terms, earlier is preferable. Instructing a solicitor to handle your Timperley conveyancing early could mitigate the chance of the transaction stalling.
We have had a conveyancing quote from you. Might we have to pay any additional fees?
Our solicitors never hide any hidden fees for any reason. Be aware that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.
A right of way on the property I’m buying is redundant, but how do I get it removed from the deeds and registry?
A right of way through the grounds of a property is probably an inheritance before other building in the vicinity occurred that has since made the passage through redundant.
But, while having the right of way registered with the deeds means that feasibly someone could insist that they use it (as their public right), but, if they can’t access where the right of way originally led, it makes it a pointless activity.
It’s so unlikely that anyone will want to do this that you have to weigh up the cost of the legal process to get the right of way officially removed against not proceeding. However, if you are at all worried, talk to your solicitor so that it can be investigated further as part of the conveyancing, at which point they can guide you on the appropriate action and the associated costs (this will be in addition to the standard fees for the conveyancing and your solicitor will advise of this additional cost).
Homeward Legal's solicitors provide transparent quotes, detailing what is included in the fees and disbursements and will help with estimates for additional legal work. So, now is the best time to get your conveyancing under way on 0800 038 6699.
