How do we get fixed rate conveyancing?


Numerous solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. However extra costs may be added into the terms and conditions, left unregarded by busy home owners Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


As a consequence of the flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, we are thinking that flood risk searches might not be thorough enough?


Flood searches carried out by a solicitor in Widnes will include a more thorough Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you remain worried why not approach a next door neighbour or local Cheshire flood damage business - for example: Colin Bain Painting & Decorating, 6 Camberwell Park Road, Widnes, WA8 3EQ Tel: 0151-420 3323.


What are property searches in reference to?


These searches are enquiries carried out on behalf of the purchaser. They are not a substitute for a survey.


Which local authority looks after Widnes?

Widnes is located in Halton Borough Council, Municipal Building, Kingsway, Widnes, Cheshire, WA8 7QF, phone: 0303 333 4300


I have a requirement to exchange contracts on the conveyancing on a freehold flat within 28 days, are you fast home moving solicitors in Widnes ?


Honestly, a lot of Cheshire conveyancers are very slow which usually adds even more stress the rigmarole of buying or selling a home.

By utilising new productivity systems . We always give you carefully selected property lawyer qualified to communicate with the whole chain like lenders, to fulfil a fast sale


I am intending to buy a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Burton. Will a chancel search be compulsory?


Whichever Widnes parish in which you are purchasing, a lawyer may suggest a chancel search. In older areas of Widnes, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


What causes conveyancing for a sale to be so delayed?


The conveyancing process may take more time even where there is no chain. The reasons are on occasion unhappily beyond a solicitor's power. Homeward Legal seek to reduce their consequences wherever possible to do so by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.


Should you get a chancel liability search? I am buying a house in Widnes.


Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Widnes church lands which may give rise to chancel liability include Hough Green St Basil & All Saints, St Ambrose, St John and St Mary's Church.
