I am trying to find a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.


Numerous property lawyers promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in small print. Additional costs included in the small print needs to be fair. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on a conveyancing quote


Which specific search enquiries will the Bishopsworth conveyancer do when instructed on a Bishopsworth flat?


The conventional legal procedure is to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and occasionally special local Bishopsworth searches, which may include a Official Search of whole without priority.


What can contaminate land in Bishopsworth. Are they an issue?


Residential property in Bishopsworth would be contaminated by a broad range of natural causes, such as hazardous and regulated installations or waste treatment sites in the area. An environmental search will offer more detail.


We are intending to move out of our period property near Bishopsworth into a new flat in Bishopston at what point to appoint a removal company?


Most solicitors usually advise that sellers put off booking a removals company until such time as exchange of contracts has occurred as an absolute date wont have been formally agreed. The greater majority of house removals companies often charge a late cancellation penalty . Try First Choice, 139 Highridge Green, Bristol, BS13 8AB Call: 0117 964 7599 or N & C Removals & Storage, The Orchard/139 Highridge Green, Bristol, BS13 8AB Telephone: 0117 964 1947.


Why could the conveyancing process require so much time and effort?


The Bishopsworth conveyancing process will occasionally potentially be delayed. We work hard to reduce their effect where it is possible to do so.


UCB Home Loans is going to be our lender, what do I need to know?


Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean higher legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, can act for all large lenders in the UK, ensuring that an additional chosen solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.


Is it a sensible idea to hold off paying HMRC stamp duty?


We strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been several government initiatives, such as for first-time buyers. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.


Following recent news about the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am concerned that environmental searches may not be sufficient?


A competent solicitor in Bishopsworth should always get additional informative environmental searches (Landmark search) if the standard searches spots a local Bishopsworth flood risk.

For added assurance it may be prudent to get in touch with a local resident.
