Commuters are well catered for with Woolton having very convenient motorway access about 2 miles off the M62 Junction 5 Eastbound.

The closest airport to Woolton is Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Manchester Terminals 1 & 3 Airport is 25 miles, Manchester Terminal 2 Airport is 25 miles, Howarden Airport is 15 miles and Eccles Airport is 21 mile away. Woolton's nearest train station is Hunts Cross.

Sir Alfred Jones Memorial Liverpool is a relatively close hospital to Woolton.

Q.

How do we get the cheapest Woolton conveyancing quote?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges may be added into the solicitor's terms. Any charges needs to be reasonable and clear. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How much does the searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, clients buying a property charged at most £249 for a standard search bundle. They are charged at cost.

Q.

What scrutiny in connection with the potential risk of a flood to properties in Merseyside will a Woolton property lawyer report on a Fifties property we are going to purchase?

A.

A lawyer makes an application for standard environmental searches, which include Woolton historical flood risk information. Furthermore, your property solicitor in Woolton could possibly suggest a more detailed in-depth flood search.

Q.

May the charges for our conveyancing hide any extra fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra costs. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to speak to a conveyancer?

A.

The straightforward answer is, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may be performed immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor could mitigate the chance of the sale or purchase aborting.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Virgin Money - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers in Woolton should be aware that a small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers if the lender insists upon their own lawyer . We will act for all large lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Is it necessary that we get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Woolton apartment near church grounds.

A.

There are 15000 Church of England and Church of Wales parishes throughout the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to contribute towards the cost of the repair of a local church. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Woolton properties is likely to exist. A solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller looks to have installed stone cladding on the flat in Woolton which I think may infringe on local conservation area criteria

A.

Your instructed solicitor is required to determine if the property is located within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the appropriate consent.
