How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


Numerous firms offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees are often hiding in small print. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on your conveyancing quote Fees should be reasonable. They only come into force where the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


Is contaminated land an issue for homes in Thornbury?


Property can be contaminated by a broad range of factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants like limestone or gypsum quarrying should be considered as part of the appropriate search. Land / Premises At, Aust Road, Gloucestershire, BS35 4AS is a source of potential local contamination in Thornbury.


Which factors help with ensuring a fast conveyancing transaction?


As is often argued, fast Thornbury conveyancing is key is to employing a proactive, diligent solicitor. That said, there are a range of tasks you, as the buyer, could do. These include:

I am buying a restored chapel in Gloucester St Michael. Should we get a chancel search?


A solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. In older areas of Thornbury, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a house where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Is a drainage search a fee or disbursement?


An ideal quote will itemise fees and disbursements, clearly stating which is which. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.


Is Thornbury soil possibly contaminated by antimony (Sb)?


There are extensive regulations imposed to stop future top-soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contaminants like hydrocarbons and herbicides.


Which government authority is on charge of for watching over the state of Thornbury and Thornbury conservation areas?


English Heritage have produced a detailed list about the state of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to a decline in standards.

Local Thornbury conservation areas are created by South Gloucestershire who maintain conservation area concerns from including things like new developments, rear extensions and paths.


Can you explain why the purchase conveyancing process in Thornbury takes such a long time?
