Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing by bypassing a Widnes conveyancer is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a maisonette but would it actually be foolhardy ?

A.

In theory there is absolutely no argument at all why a home buyer cannot handle the greater majority of the conveyancing without assistance. The truth is however that a Widnes lawyer is in charge of a large number of actions e.g. approving enquiries on searches and interpreting management accounts some of which require the relevant training.

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

A.

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.

Can you suggest how I bypass paying stamp duty to the Revenue?
