How do I find a cheap solicitor in Radstock to sell property?


Many online and high street law firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs will be included in the terms and conditions. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra charges needs to be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


Our estate agent in Louth has suggested a law firm whom they usually use. Should I instruct this firm?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will usually recommend a law firm. These referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like chairs?


There is no clear definition of fixtures and fittings, leading to potential for frustration after a sale completes. The need to clarify this is often overlooked, which makes the early agreement of the fixtures and fittings form so important.


What type of inquiry as respects the risk of local flooding to properties in North Somerset will the Radstock solicitor go into detail on for a buy to let property we are intending to buy?

A conveyancing lawyer will conduct formal conveyancing searches that should include Radstock historical flood risk information. A more North Somerset database search, such as the Homecheck search, may possibly be advocated by the Radstock lawyer if in the event that the environmental search show that there is a potential flood risk to the buy to let flat.


Is it recommended that we get a chancel search when we are purchasing close to a 12th Century vicarage in Radstock?


In Radstock, some owners can be required to cover the cost of repairs to nearby church land. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Radstock properties is likely to exist. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church properties in the area where a chancel search may be appropriate include Holy Trinity Church and St Nicholas.


Do you have fast solicitors that advise on property auction conveyancing in Radstock?


Our firm frequently act for buyers at auction. Lawyers tend to suggest auction buyers to select an experienced conveyancing firm well in advance of the auction day so there is time for an investigation.

After the property auction, your conveyancing lawyer has to be prepared for complete all of the legal work inside 28 days as usually required by the terms of sale.


We are buying on a Radstock brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like antimony (Sb)?


Radstock's local area has a history of contamination from industrial or agricultural, like much of the UK. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including acidic compounds.


I am purchasing a £133000, how is stamp duty calculated?


Stamp Duty Land Tax will depend on the value of the property. On a £133000 property, stamp duty will be £1330.*
