AssumingI were to purchase a simple residential homein Cheshire for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Cheshire?
The only reduction in fees you would make on is the Cheshire conveyancing searches. The conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with your sellers conveyancer, stamp duty submission, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a charge however it will not be meaningful.
Should commercial conveyancing searches disclose impending roadworks that could affect a commercial land in Cheshire?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Cheshire will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers spend in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Cheshire. The report provides definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Cheshire.
For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Cheshire it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. Failure to identify developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately could result in delays to Cheshire commercial conveyancing transactions as well as pose a risk to future intentions for the site. These searches are not conducted for residential conveyancing in Cheshire.
