How do I get low cost conveyancing in Dursley?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Any fees ought to be reasonable. They only be applied if your lawyer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


What will the Dursley conveyancing solicitor recommend if the home is situated in a Stroud conservation area and turns out to have unseemly removal of chimney stacks added?


Stroud planning authority searches carried out by a property lawyer will check if the property is within a conservation area and evidence of Coal Authority consent for changes to the property will be requested. Should no authority consents be available, the solicitor will inform you of the best alternative for example requesting an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective consent from Stroud planning authority.


We are buying in Dursley on a new-build brownfield site. It seems tin (Sn) soil contamination may be an issue.


Dursley agriculture or industry can cause topsoil contamination. Also considering issues such as perchlorate and water contaminants such as organic compounds, contaminants affecting Dursley property will be factored into an environmental search.


Do fixtures and fittings include things like free-standing kitchen appliances?


Commonly, fixtures are fixed items, such as gas or wall-mounted ovens to the property, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. This may not considered until it is too late, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.


How much will the searches usually cost?


Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the searches required by your lender. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party.


We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, can we organise a fast conveyancing transaction?


Key to fast Dursley conveyancing is to instruct a proactive conveyancer. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they use email?
  • Do they order searches immediately?


Do I need a chancel liability search? I am buying a house on the same road as a church in Dursley.


There are fifteen thousand ecclesiastical parishes across the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Dursley property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Dursley Church of England properties include St James the Great.


How long on average should it take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to get through all of the legal formalities on the top floor of period home we are purchasing in Dursley?


Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between around a month and 12 weeks contingent on a number of things, like the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the time taken to issue draft contracts.
