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.

Environmental searches are based on archived records and when you consider climate change such as the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, are they the ideal way to determine sufficient information about the changing Woolton future flood risk?

A.

Flood risk searches conducted by a Woolton conveyancer should also include a more thorough search (Landmark) if required.

If you are nervous it may be worth trying to get in touch with a close neighbour.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how do we get a fast completion?

It is a truism that instructing a proactive solicitor is crucial to fast conveyancing. That said, there are a number of tasks you as the buyer could do. These include:

  • asking for property searches to be ordered immediately
  • answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible
  • getting your mortgage offer in place

Q.

Is contaminated land in Woolton a problem?

A.

Woolton property may have been contaminated by a broad range of human activities. Issues such as sand or gravel pits and shallow mining will be considered as part of the environmental searches.

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.

Does Homeward Legal do property auction conveyancing in Woolton?

A.

We are highly experienced with auction buyers and sellers. Regularly more complicated to convey auction lots are sold at auction and these necessitate deeper investigation by the lawyer. We therefore advocate that buyers decide on a good conveyancing solicitor prior to the date of the auction for a full investigation of the sellers legal pack. Q.

What should we do regarding arsenic soil contamination in Woolton?

A.

Effort is made on a local and national level to clean up top-soil contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination, contaminants affecting Woolton property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Do I need a building survey for our house purchase?

A.

We strongly advise that you order a building survey. There can be a wide range of defects which can affect a property, including severe weathering or chimney defects.
