Ask Lorraine a question

Updated: 20/10/16

Shirehampton is within 1m of junction entry 18 Southbound of the M5.

Shirehampton train station is around a mile from Shirehampton. Bristol Airport is 7 miles from Shirehampton.

The most convenient hospital is Bristol, Redland Hill.


How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


Many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers


Which local authority is responsible for Shirehampton?


Shirehampton is located in Bristol City Council, The Council House, College Green, BS1 5TR, contact: 0117 922 3000


What are 'fixtures and fittings'?


Mainly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as alarm systems to walls and other surfaces, whereas fixtures are free-standing. For many transactions, this is not considered, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.


If we plan to buy in the parish of Sheepscombe, will we need a chancel search?


A conveyancing lawyer might recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will remain liability-free for new owners.


Is titanium contamination regularly identified in Shirehampton soil?


Extensive measures are taken throughout Shirehampton to rectify soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Shirehampton is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like ammonia, will also be included in an environmental search.


Should I get a home buyers survey for our home purchase?


It is advised that purchasers in Shirehampton instruct a surveyor to carry out a survey. It is a fact that there are many problems that affect a property, including flat roof leaks or unsafe chimney circulation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


Bookshops now have an abundance of very helpful publications giving details on by passing the solicitor for example House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing by Joesph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. Do I therefore need to instruct a property lawyer in Shirehampton ?


There are no arguments why a buyer cant take care of the greater majority of the your own conveyancing without the help of Shirehampton conveyancer. That said, a Shirehampton conveyancer typically handles a significant number of functions such as understanding the practical side of the process and handling retentions which need training. Critically amateur lawyers do not have sufficient insurance cover which all firms and their solicitors must pay for.


The owner looks to have installed unseemly doors on the flat which I think might possibly infringe the Shirehampton conservation area guidelines.


Part of the conveyancing process includes procurement of searches of Bristol local authority to confirm conservation area status and consent for any alterations. .
