The closest station to Badminton is Yate, approximately 6 miles away. Badminton's closest airport is Bristol Airport (21 miles).

Malmesbury is a nearby hospital.


We are trying to find an affordable conveyancing quote, we are on a tight budget.


Many firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs are often hiding in small print. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote

Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Imagine Mortgages Ltd, 1 Straits Pde, Bristol, BS16 2LA, Bath Mortgage Search, 106 Broadmoor La, Bath, BA1 4LB, and MTI Independent Ltd, 42 High St, Hanham, Bristol, BS15 3DP. The Badminton solicitor handling the work for your sale or purchase can confirm additional costs or hurdles associated with your chosen lender.


Is a home buyers survey a good idea if we are buying property in Badminton?


Homeward Legal firmly recommend that you book a survey when purchasing in Badminton. A range issues can affect a property, for example unsafe chimney circulation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


Does our conveyancing solicitor in Badminton tell me about the cost of the council tax on a Band F townhouse before exchanging contracts?

which will be added to the conveyancer's title report. The correct charges for Badminton are listed at the South Gloucestershire council website. Currently (01 July 2012) the rates are:

Apparently, vanadium soil contamination may be an issue in Badminton. Can you advise?

What does a Badminton conveyancing lawyer recommend if the home I want to buy is inside the boundary of a South Gloucestershire conservation area which seems to have unapproved new windows fitted?


South Gloucestershire local authority enquiries carried out by your Badminton conveyancing solicitor during the legal process will find out if the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of the appropriate permissions for changes to the property will be supplied.


There are many resources giving details on by passing the solicitor such as Straightforward Guide to the Process of Conveyancing . Do we want to use a property lawyer in Badminton for my move?


If you wish to have a stab you can practically undertake the conveyancing without using an experienced conveyancing solicitor in Badminton. Of course solicitors practices would argue that this is a risky approach as DIY lawyers are taking risks without acceptable insurance cover which every legal firms are obligated to have.


I am buying a £763000 residence in Badminton. How is stamp duty worked out?


Stamp Duty will rely on the purchase price. On a £763000 property, stamp duty will be £30520.*
