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.

Should we get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of St Helens, near Wallasey?

A.

A solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to impose chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not continue to be so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

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.

A.

Q.

Will the solicitor in Wallasey request personal or official searches on my property purchase?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will advise regarding the best type of search, depending on things like building society requirements. For personal searches, the conveyancer may consider a search agent wit local experience for example Pali Wirral, Chester, Liverpool - a trading name of Pali Ltd and NLIS.LTD, 2-4 Croxteth Avenue, Wallasey, Wirral, Merseyside, CH44 5UL Tel: 0151 691 1170.

Q.

What is the explanation why purchase conveyancing legal work requires weeks?

A.
