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.

Do we need to opt for the property solicitor suggested by our estate agent in Horwich?

A.

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you your agent may be able to use their influence to reduce delays in the conveyancing process. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

If we plan to purchase near Waolstenholme, in the parish of Waolstenholme, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The property solicitor might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the house being purchased is found. In Waolstenholme's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a house

where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is Barnsley Building Society - is there anything I need to know?

A.

House buyers should know that a small number of lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. We will act for many mortgage lenders.

Q.

We are buying in Waolstenholme, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Could there be any hidden fees?

A.

No. We do not hide any hidden charges for your legal work. Our quotes offer an single, accurate price the legal costs for your sale or purchase.

Q.

Is it recommended that I get a chancel search if I am buying a Waolstenholme property near a church furlong?

A.

The outcome of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards church repairs. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Waolstenholme Parochial Church Council enforce liability.

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.

What sort of local conveyancing searches in connection with the potential risk of floods to properties in Greater Manchester will my conveyancing solicitor in Waolstenholme be able to conduct?

A.

An essential part of the legal due diligence process of purchasing a property involves a lawyer making an application for environmental searches that provide specific information on the subject of Waolstenholme flood risk area.
