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.

I am purchasing a maisonette in the middle of a conservation area in Wallasey, how does one find more details on the state of repair?

A.

English Heritage have put together information of the condition of conservation areas along with the exposure to a worsening

of the condition of the area. Conservation areas in Wallasey are set up by the local Wirral planning authority, who oversee things like upkeep of paths to the thwarting of new developments.

Q.

Apparently, cobalt (Co) soil contamination may be an issue in Wallasey. Can you advise?

Wallasey agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as asbestos and groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.

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.

We are on a deadline and need ensure fast conveyancing, what do we need to ensure?

A.

As is widely reported, finding a proactive conveyancing solicitor is the key to a faster move. When identifying an appropriate a conveyancing solicitor, consider these questions: What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they order searches immediately? Was there a delay delivering a 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.
