You have limited options available to you.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I was pointed in your direction by a few selling agents in Widnes to get a quote from a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to promote your site ahead of a competitor’s?

We refuse to give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I am using a search engine for the phrase cheap conveyancing in Widnes it brings up numerous conveyancersin the area. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right conveyancer for my move?

The ideal way of seeking the right conveyancer is via trusted recommendation, so enquire of friends and those you trust who have purchased a property in Widnes or the respected estate agent or financial adviser.
