How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Newent?


Many online and high street firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees may inflate the final invoice. Any extra fees which are listed in the solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. They be applicable if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A conveyancing quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursements).


In regards to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are asking if flood risk searches may not be detailed enough?


Your Newent conveyancing solicitor will advise you to get additional flood risk searches if the standard searches spots a Newent flooding risk.

Why not get in touch with a local resident for some additional assurance.


Does our Newent conveyancer report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band C property before exchange of contracts?


The property's pertinent council tax band will conventionally be set out within the report on title, and by the local council. The latest tax charges for properties in Newent are set out online at the Forest of Dean local authority site. As of 17 June 2012 rates for all bands are:

How much time can conveyancing take, in your opinion? I need a fast service.


The length of time required to transfer a property can vary, influenced by potentially many considerations which may include matters where a property has a mortgage. With our specialist solicitors, the matter is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.


We have found a buyer and have a quote from you. Will I be billed any hidden fees when the move completes?


No. We will never charge any extra, hidden costs regardless of circumstances.


Do I need a chancel liability search? I am purchasing a house in Newent.


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 contribute towards the cost of the repair of a local church. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Newent churches where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Mary the Virgin.


Do you recommend your solicitors to advise on residential property auction conveyancing in Newent?


Our company commonly get instructed by bidders at auction. Our specialist solicitors and conveyancers have in the past been instructed by many vendors at local Newent auctions, for example Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Shrewd bidders always select their chosen property lawyer as early as possible so there is time for a detailed investigation of the auction legal papers prior to the date of the auction. Immediately following the property auction you are the conveyancing solicitor must be prepared for get through the purchase legal work within 28 days, a requirement of conditions of sale.
