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.


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.


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.


Are there many conservation areas in the area?

Conservation areas categorise areas of historic or architectural significance. These restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities, but the benefits will include an increase in local property values. Your lawyer will advise further.


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.

My local agent has suggested the solicitors firm that they have used before. Must I instruct this solicitor?


Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.
