Stapleton is inside 1m of junction entry 2 Northbound of the M32.

The nearest station to Stapleton is Filton Abbeywood, about 2 miles away. Bristol Airport is 10 miles from Stapleton.

The most convenient hospital is Blackberry Hill Bristol.


We are trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Stapleton. because we are on a limited budget.


Many online and high street property lawyers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, however extra costs may be added into the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees needs to be reasonable. They only come into force where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote


Should I choose a solicitor named by the estate agent in Erith?


Many estate agents will have referral deals with solicitors where they refer conveyancing clients to them, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.


Is it advisable that I get a chancel search? We are purchasing on the same street as a church in Stapleton.


Owners of property near to nearby church property are expected to subsidise repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Stapleton properties is likely to exist. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area include Holy Trinity, St John the Baptist, St Martin and St Mary.


What precautions can we take to circumvent paying stamp duty in Stapleton?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually due on property over £125,000. We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme. These schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been several government-sponsored schemes,

on the other hand, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your solicitor..


In what ways does the property solicitor in Stapleton investigate the risk of a flood in the Stapleton area?


An essential part of the legal due diligence process carried out when buying a property involves a conveyancing solicitor making an application for environmental searches that set out some details in relation to Stapleton area flood risk. Furthermore a solicitor in Stapleton may recommend a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) specialist flood search. A recent check (08-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the Bristol Frome from Stapleton to Bristol Floating Harbour, riverside properties at the Rivers Esk and Irthing


The web is awash a number of handbooks giving details on doing your own legal work e.g. Conveyancing Forms and Procedures . In which case, do I have to use Stapleton property lawyer ?


It can possible for you to carry out the legal work yourself. In reality however, a lawyer is familiar with a significant number of tasks including applying for office copies of lease and other land reg docs and handling retentions most of which need training. AT any rate solicitors firms are required by their regulator to carry indemnity cover that ultimately protects you from any losses you encounter.


In about 6 weeks we are likely to be finally moving out of our detached property in Stapleton to our new building in Cotham , at what point to appoint a removals firm?


Most lawyers usually advise that home buyers and sellers hold off booking a removals company until the point where contracts have exchanged because in all probability a move date will not have been confirmed.

There are many local and national companies including Dial A Van & Man, 13 Hedgemead View, Bristol, BS16 1EP Call: 07976 279263 or Ashman C J & Sons, 65 Grove Pk Ter, Bristol, BS16 2BL Telephone: 0117 970 8477.


Does Stapleton include any designated conservation areas?


There are a number of conservation areas in or near Stapleton. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the conveyancing process.
