Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Walkden?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Extra charges should be reasonable and clear. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

In 1 month we are preparing to be moving out of our semi detached property on the outskirts of Walkden to a new property in Tyldesley at what stage to book a home removal company?

A.

Most lawyers will encourage home buyers and sellers put off until such time as contracts have exchanged because the firm home moving date wont have been scheduled.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Walkden?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is located. Chancel

repair dues can be collected on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Do any areas of conservation in Walkden have the potential to constrain us?

A.

Parts of Walkden considered be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like fishing villages, may be designated as conservation areas. The local council will be able to provide more details about local conservation areas, and the lawyer handling your purchase address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

What can a Walkden conveyancing solicitor recommend if the flat we are intending to buy is in a Salford council conservation area which has unseemly roof antenna installed?

A.

The local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by your Walkden property lawyer will ascertain if the property is inside a designated conservation area and any evidence of consent for modifications will be required.

Q.

I am on a very tight budget , Can doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without a Walkden solicitor possibly save any money?

A.

If you are so inclined have a go you can conceivably take care of the legal process without engaging a trained conveyancing solicitor in Walkden .

Naturally conveyancing professionals would argue that DIY conveyancing would be a hazardous method as DIY lawyers will not be covered by acceptable insurance cover which every solicitors practices are bound to have.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Walkden?

A.

Walkden is located in Salford City Council, Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton, Salford, M27 5DA, Call: 01617 944 711

Q.

Do I need a chancel search if I am buying in Walkden?

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Walkden property likely to be affected. Parochial Church Councils in Walkden must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.
