Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Warrington.

A.

Many law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra charges will be included in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied home owners We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How long does conveyancing to sell a house usually take, in your experience? We have a buyer ready.

A.

For most property, the number of weeks needed to transact a home will vary. This is dependent on a number of issues which may affect the property, such as whether either party has a mortgage. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, whereas Homeward Legal work towards four to six weeks, wherever possible.

Q.

How do we stop ourselves from getting gazumped on our Warrington property?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a seller first agrees to an offer, only to later reject it for a greater offer.

Although gazumping can be less common in a declining housing market, there can always be a chance.

Instructing a good and speedy solicitor as early on as possible should help reduce the likelihood of gazumping, but you can also read here to find out more ways to avoid it happening.

Q.

Are there service providers who remediate contaminated soil in Warrington?

Remediation of contaminated land in Warrington is possible is some cases, but costly, local government is usually responsible. A Warrington specialist e.g. Warrington Turf Supplies, 35 Manchester Rd, Woolston, Warrington, WA1 4AE can provide additional information.

Q.

We are on a deadline and will need to guarantee fast conveyancing, what can we do to accelerate our conveyancing process?

A.

As is often reported, a fast completion is crucial to is to employing a proactive conveyancer. Furthermore, there are a range of tasks you, as the buyer, can also do, such as, keeping in regular contact with your conveyancer, arranging any finances require to complete the purchase and quickly answering your conveyancer's questions (by email if possible).

Q.

If we are intending to buy in the parish of Lymm, should we order a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a period semi-detached building in Warrington?

A.

Q.

What are 'fixtures and fittings', in relation to our Warrington house purchase?

A.

The ‘fixtures and fixtures’ list includes anything that can be removed from the property such as carpets, curtain poles, lighting and door handles, though this is very dependent on your individual purchase.

Homebuyers are regularly frustrated by the lack of clarity around fixtures and fittings, and what is actually included.

The fixtures and fittings form is meant to avoid confusion, making it clear what is included with the sale of the house, but you will want to make sure the seller gives it to you early on to avoid a dispute.
