The Assurance of No Sale No Fee Conveyancing in Manchester

It can be decidedly stressful when your property transaction falls through. Numerous reasons can lead to a transaction aborting such as a buyer pulling out or the mortgage offer elapsing.

Thanks to our no sale no fee guarantee, clients do not incur any solicitors fees should your house move fails to go ahead.

Your deposit paid can be offset against your alternative property or sale and you only have to pay for any third party disbursements, e.g. drainage and water searches.

Trees in Manchester

The impact of Tree Preservation Orders

Contrary to the name, TPOs (tree preservation orders) in Manchester do not only cover older, single trees. Hedgerows or groups of trees may also be legally protected in this fashion, but fortunately consent is not required for cutting down or carrying out work on trees which are dead or dying or have become dangerous. Trees planted in accordance with a condition placed on new build property developers are not necessarily subject to a TPO. Obtaining a copy of any TPOs affecting a Manchester home before it is marketed will make it easier for copies to be sent to a buyer's Conveyancing Solicitor with the draft contract.

Lenders in Manchester

Issues to consider when your lawyer is not on your Lender's panel

Panels of solicitors are maintained by mortgage lenders in order to undertake legal work on mortgaged properties. Lenders have also reduced the size of their panels, setting more restrictive criteria for membership. To proceed where your Manchester lawyer is not on a mortgage lender' s panel, you have the following options:

  • Try to obtain a mortgage from another lender who will instruct your Conveyancing solicitor.
  • Instruct another firm of Conveyancing solicitors who are on your lender's panel to handle your Conveyancing.
  • Continue with your present Conveyancing solicitor, but accept that a separate firm will also act for the lender, and that you will have to pay their costs in addition.

It is usually cheaper to have the same firm act both for you and your lender, and carry out all the conveyancing work in connection with a purchase and the mortgage.

Mining in Manchester

Will you require a Coal & Brine Report (Coal Authority) if you purchase a house in Manchester?

There has never been any central record of all mines, so it can be difficult to find comprehensive information about mining activity in or near Manchester. The mining search provides information on the following:

  • Records of coal mining activity in the vicinity, whether past, current, or planned
  • Records of any former mine-shafts nearby
  • Information about previous subsidence known to have taken place, including details of previous damage claims
  • Details of coal seams known to exist beneath the property

After all the coal has been removed from an area mined with modern methods, the site should be restored. Discarded waste, spoil, or smelting by-products may have soiled parts of Manchester located near defunct older mines. An environment search may also be required in these cases. solicitors acting for property buyers in potentially affected parts of Manchester will make a search with one of a number of companies who have assembled data relating to local mine workings.

Flooding in Manchester

Manchester Flooding

Flood risk is one of many considerations a Manchester solicitor can investigate while performing property searches. Sources of flooding include the obvious, river and coastal flooding, but also unexpected issues such as sewer or reservoir flooding. Following the expiration of an agreement with the Government, insurers are increasingly uncomfortable with offering protection for homes at risk of flooding, so asking your solicitor to perform a thorough search at your request is the safest course. Recent flood warnings in Manchester:

  • Areas at risk include parts of Audley and Egmont Streets and Wharf Cottages - No warnings
  • Properties between Bridgewater Canal and Wythenshaw Rd and from Norris Rd to A56, in the vicinity of Sylvan Ave, Woodhouse Lane East, Framingham Rd, Brooklands Rd, Dalebrook Rd, Cranleigh Rd, Buxton Crescent, Broadley Walk and Maryport Drive - No warnings
  • Areas at risk include properties on Grace Walk, the evens side of Ancoats Grove, and parts of Palmerston Street - No warnings

Advice when comparing Manchester solicitors conveyancing fees

Manchester solicitors legal costs are made up of two individual parts described as disbursements and legal fees.

conveyancing fees are the sums that the buyer or seller pays to the Manchester solicitor for completing the legal process.

Legal disbursements, like a FloodSolutions Residence or forfeiture of lease indemnity insurance, are just extra fees incurred by the conveyancing solicitor for you.

The key to comparing Manchester conveyancing solicitors costs is to rifle through the solicitors terms of business.

Manchester New Build Conveyancing

If purchasing a new build, buyers would generally expect to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase before the building work is completed.

When buying newly built houses and flats be sure to check that the builders are NHBC members. By instructing a conveyancing solicitor early, your purchase has a greater chance of proceeding without major incident.
