Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote to sell property?

A.

The confusion over this issue catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges will be included in small print. Fees needs to be fair. Any disbursements should also be included on the quote

Q.

We are purchasing with Capital Home Loans, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act for the majority of lenders so that you will not be required to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.

Q.

What environmental concerns will impact land in Wallasey, and are they checked for comprehensively?

A.

Property in Wallasey can be contaminated by several natural causes and human activities, such as pollution incidents. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

What is the council tax on a converted Band D property in Wallasey?

A.

Q.

What type of local conveyancing searches in relation to the potential risk of flooding at Merseyside will the Wallasey conveyancing solicitor be able to apply for?

A.

A vital step in the legal process involves your solicitor applying for property environmental searches that set out some details about the local Wallasey flood risk.

Q.

Do we need to get a chancel search? We are buying in Wallasey.

A.

Property owners in a neighbourhood near specific local church buildings may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbey', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Churches in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Hilary, St Nicholas and St Thomas the Apostle, Liscard.

Q.

Is your solicitor team geared up for move quickly on the conveyancing of property auction properties in Wallasey?

A.

Our firm do frequently take instructions from sellers at auction. We typically recommend buyers at auction to select a local conveyancing solicitor well before the date of the auction to allow enough time for a full review of the legal papers.

Post day of the auction, your lawyer has to be ready for conclude the legal work in 28 days as typically required by the terms of sale.

Q.

In regards to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am apprehensive that property environmental searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches handled by a Wallasey lawyer will include the far more in depth search (Landmark) if required.

If you are anxious why not try to speak to a local resident.
