We Have Put Together Some Frequently Asked Questions From Our Clients, When They Are Looking For Conveyancing Solicitors In Manchester.
I Need The Cheapest Conveyancing Solicitors In Manchester To Do My Transaction. What Should I Look Out For?
Numerous Conveyancing Solicitors 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 very low ‘fee illustration’ as most our competitors do and charge 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 Property in Manchester, significant legal work must be carried out with these types of transactions in comparison to a freehold property. In addition, the Title of a Leasehold Property in Manchester must be thoroughly checked before you are committed to the contract to ensure that you are not inheriting title defects or outstanding costs such as service charge or ground rent arrears from the previous owners. Our experienced Manchester property solicitors will guide you through these complicated aspects of each transaction. Do not make a decision of who to instruct, solely on the basis of costs as these may have long lasting implications on your ability to enjoy your new home by using cheaper, more inexperienced Conveyancers.
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 in Manchester.
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.
Are Coal Searches A Must When Purchasing A Property In Manchester?
Not necessarily although it is not unusual to require on. Manchester and surrounding areas have historically been mining communities and it is not unlikely that your property you are hoping to purchase might have been built near a disused mining shaft. Carrying out a Coal search would reveal if your property is affected by one of these mine shafts and your appointed conveyancing Manchester lawyer will advise you of any risks of how this may affect your property.
How Will I Know Who Responsible For Maintaining The Fences Of The Property I Am Buying In Manchester?
Depending on which type of property you are buying, i.e. freehold house or a leasehold flat, your obligations of maintaining these would be different. Your appointed conveyancing solicitor in Manchester will advise you of these obligations, once they have reviewed the Title Documents to the property.
