Q.

I am trying to find a cheap Upton solicitor for purchasing a house. Can you assist?

A.

Confusion over this topic affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary home owners fail to check.

Q.

I am buying in Upton. Are there many areas of conservation in the area?

A.

Parts of Upton considered be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like model housing estates, may be recognised as conservation areas. Conservation areas in Upton include St Crispin Hospital. A solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

Will I need searches for chancel liability? We are purchasing a house close to priory land in Upton.

The result of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must cover the cost of church repairs. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church lands in the local area include St Laurence, St Mary the Virgin, St Dunstan and St Margaret.

Q.

Do I need a home surveyor to view this home purchase in Upton?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly suggest that purchasers in Upton arrange a building survey if you are planning to buy in Upton. Many problems affect a property, which include corrosion of pipework or unsafe chimney circulation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Do we need to be aware of fixtures and fittings?

A.

Usually, fixtures are fixed items, such as light switches to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing items, such as rugs. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Upton?

A.

Upton is located in Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council, Town Hall, Brighton Street, Wallasey, Wirral, CH44 8ED, contact: 0151 606 2000

Q.

Is a deed of postponement passed on at cost?

A.

A quote should clearly state all disbursements and fees. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

Are any of the Upton conservation areas are in a poor state?

A.

A recent evaluation of the condition of conservation areas in Upton is reported by English Heritage and the following details are currently viewable at English Heritage - St Crispin Hospital with Upton determined to be very bad with medium vulnerability and condition improving significantly.
