New in Manchester? We have put together some frequently
asked questions from our clients, when they are looking for
Conveyancing Solicitors in Manchester.
What is the Population Density of Manchester?
As per the 2011 census Manchester has a residential population 1,167,402 people spread over an area of 38,799 hectares (95,874 acres) meaning a residential population density 30.1 people per hectare (12.2 per acre).
I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors to do
my transaction. How do I get a quote?
Numerous firms in Manchester portray that they offer cheap conveyancing quotes and conveyancing fees. However additional costs are often hidden or dressed up within their terms and conditions. The quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. We pride ourselves in conducting honest business and the most transparent fees in the industry.
We will never entice with you a £150 + VAT as most our competitors do and charge in excess of thousands of pounds on completion – when it is too late for you to withdraw (remember, by this time, you could have entered into a contract with your Conveyancing Solicitors by way of a Terms and Conditions agreement).
Do bear in mind, especially if you are purchasing a Leasehold or Shared Ownership Property any costs such as Notice fees which are only revealed at the point of title checking and therefore will not be included in your original fee illustration. These once again are Disbursements – third party costs applicable to the transaction, irrespective of which firm of conveyancers you use.
When should we be arranging
If you are buying a house in Manchester, unfortunately, even though your offer has been accepted, contracts are not legally binding until contracts have exchanged. Therefore, removals should not be arranged until you have done as so. Though your Conveyancer will work towards a target completion date, until contracts have exchanged, no assurances of a fixed completion date can be given.
How much does it cost to carry
out the property searches?
The cost of searches varies as certain properties require additional searches than others.
A classic example of this is a coal search. The cost of the searches will be clearly defined to you by your Conveyancing Solicitor.
At Express Conveyancing, we have negotiated long and hard with various providers to come up with a Search Bundle which included the three most common searches you require. This bundle is illustrated on your Conveyancing Quote as the search pack.
Depending on where you are purchasing, sometimes, other obscure searches are required to safeguard your interest and as part of obligation to your lender. We will make you aware of such additional fees as soon as these become available.
