Q.

We need a cheap Wigan solicitor to buy a home. What do we need to check for?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many home owners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. A conveyancing quote ought to define any disbursements to be paid. Any extra fees which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are going to buy in Wigan. Is it that significant that property searches are performed?

A.

Searches are a typical collection of queries requested by the purchaser's conveyancer through particular authorities, and refer to the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

I am intending to buy a home in Wigan. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor could advise a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a property where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Do you recommend that I get a chancel search if we are buying a Wigan residence by a church furlong?

A.

Some owners in Wigan can be required to contribute towards repairs to nearby church land. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Wigan property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Wigan ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Catharine, St Catharine, St George and Worsley Hall Community Church.

Q.

Please tell us why purchase conveyancing work takes so long?

A.

The Wigan conveyancing process can be lengthy, we, however, aim to reduce their impact by pushing all parties involved.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

This happens when an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the house seller, in favour of a better offer. The will be a danger of gazumping in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. Instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as you can to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

In the next month we are intending to be finally moving out of our semi detached house in Wigan into a house in Whitefield . What is the right point to choose a removal company?

A.

Best advice is for home movers to delay booking a removal company until such time as you have formally agreed the final date that as a rule occurs once final contracts are signed. Local removals firms include Man & Van Removals, 11 Vanbrugh Gr, Orrell, Wigan, WN5 0HA Call: 01942 221452 or Home Service Removals, Market Place/Renfrew Rd, Aspull, Wigan, WN2 1UT Telephone: 07928 545074.

Q.

When is it appropriate to speak to a conveyancing solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

The short answer is, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks which may begin immediately. Instructing a solicitor early for a purchase allows you will the details of your Wigan solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).
