What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Ormskirk
Do not opt for the cheapest Ormskirk conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Ormskirk conveyancer having checked that they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Co-operative will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Co-operative will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Ormskirk surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Ormskirk I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ormskirk suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

What is the distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Ormskirk?
Conveyancing - in Ormskirk or elsewhere - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are purchasing and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to remedy the defects before you complete your move.
