Nightingale Liverpool is a relatively close hospital.

Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? I need to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

Many property lawyers claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Our lender is Alliance and Leicester, what do we need to be aware of?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for buyers. We are able to act for all major mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel liability search when we are purchasing in Waterloo?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Parochial Church Councils in Waterloo must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Waterloo churches where a chancel search may be appropriate include Christ Church, St Andrew, St John and St John the Evangelist.

Q.

Which elements are key to arrange a fast conveyancing process?

A.

The key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to instruct a proactive solicitor. Consider the following:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • How soon will they order searches?

Q.

Does your lawyer in Waterloo apply for any property conveyancing searches on the London period mid terrace property I am buying?

A.

When you are applying for a mortgage lender requires you to particular searches, including the following Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search, and possibly unique particular for example Utilities Search.

Q.

We are buying a £85000 residential property in Waterloo, what should be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax rates?

A.

The Stamp Duty that is payable is calculated with reference to the purchase price. It is £0 on a £85000 house or flat (information correct 01/02/2013).

Q.

Would ordering a house survey be a good idea when we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

It is strongly suggested that Waterloo buyers arrange a property survey. A wide range of problems can negatively affect a property, such as rotten roof timbers and failed double glazing, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

In about five weeks we are anticipating to be moving from our terraced residence in Waterloo to our next dwelling in Stockbridge Village . When to choose a home removal company?

A.

Most property lawyers usually advise that you put off booking a removals company until after formal exchange of contracts because typically a definitive move date will not have been scheduled. Try Dolphine Storage & Worldwide Movers Ltd, 23 Alexandra Rd, Waterloo, Liverpool, L22 1RJ on 0151 280 3466.
