Q.

We are trying to find affordable conveyancing. How do we get a quote?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many property lawyers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional costs are often hiding in small print that unknowing buyers have not reviewed Additional charges which are listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. Any disbursements ought to be defined on any quote for conveyancing in WaolstenholmeOur quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

In a few months we are shortly going to move from our detached property near Waolstenholme to a bigger house in Urmston at what point to book a house removal firm?

A.

Homeward Legals advice is to put off booking the removals until the point where you have confirmed a completion date that normally happens after exchange of contracts. If you are looking for a local company try Sinclairs Delivery, The Lodge/Hall Fold, Whitworth, Rochdale, OL12 8TT on 01706 411995.

Q.

In respect to the flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are questioning if flood risk searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by your Waolstenholme property solicitor will include the more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are anxious why not get in touch with a future neighbour.

Q.

Is a postage, photocopying and phone calls fee a fee or disbursement?

A.

Every disbursement and fee should be clearly stated on a quote, with no additional charges of any kind in the small print. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

How much will our searches cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches will vary significantly, depending on the specific searches which have been ordered. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and will not be included in the quoted conveyancing fees.

Q.

Do we need a building survey for this property purchase?

A.

We strongly advise that home buyers in Waolstenholme book an inspection if purchasing in Waolstenholme. Many defects affect a property. These can include corrosion of pipework, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

The vendor has added removal of chimney stacks on the home in Waolstenholme which may breach nearby conservation area guidelines

A.

Your property solicitor will always identify if the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have necessary consents from the local authority.

Q.

We are intending to buy in Waolstenholme. Are there many areas of conservation in the area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as 19th century suburbs, will be designated as areas of conservation. The local authority will provide more details about local areas of conservation, and the property solicitor handling your purchase address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.
