What are the best conveyancing rates for a £768,000 property?


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What particular property searches does my Clifton property solicitor conduct when buying a Clifton flat?


The regular procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search as well as any area-specific searches, which may include a Land charges full Search.


Should we get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a flat conversion by a priory in Clifton.

There are thousands of Church of England and Church of Wales parishes throughout England and Wales. Property owners within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in the area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St John the Evangelist, St John the Evangelist, Eastwood View Church, Oakhill and St Cuthbert.


Is a PI contribution a disbursement or fee?


A quote will clearly list all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.


How do I find out more info on the upkeep of the conservation areas in Clifton?


Local Clifton conservation area matters, like trees, removal of front gardens for parking or excessive road signs are presided over by the local authority (Bristol). English Heritage, a government body, now maintain records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.


I am selling in Clifton, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Will I end up paying any extra fees?


No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra fees under any circumstances.


We are on a short deadline, needing ensure fast conveyancing, how can we speed things up?


As is often argued, fast conveyancing is the key to instruct a experienced lawyer. There are numerous things you, as the purchaser, could do, including, completing all forms as soon as possible, getting your mortgage offer in place and contacting your lawyer regularly.


Can selenium contaminate Clifton soil?
