Emersons Green, NHS Treatment Centre is a nearby hospital.


What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £350k property?


Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in small print which unwary buyers fail to check. Any extra costs found in terms and conditions should be fair. The conveyancing quote ought to define any disbursements to be paid.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Are your property lawyers able to act quickly on the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Yate?


Indeed we specialise in auctions and frequently carry out work for sellers at auction. It SI highly advisable for buyers to pick a Yate property conveyancing lawyer as ahead of time as possible to allow time for a detailed report of the auction legal pack in advance of the property auction. Q.

Can you confirm which Yate lenders your lawyers work with. Whose panels are your solicitors members of?


Of lenders with offices around Yate, we with the majority. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Yate include Edison Ford Insurance, 21 Station Road, Yate, Bristol, BS37 5HT.


Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Pucklechurch and Abson?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a building where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


I have taken out a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any hidden costs?


It is unfortunate that sellers need to be watchful for extra costs hidden in a quote's terms and conditions. We do not charge any extra, hidden fees. Be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which could be totally different to your final invoice.


The purchase is completing next April. How is Stamp Duty Land Tax calculated?


The rate of stamp duty that is payable is dependent on the purchase price of the property. Stamp duty will be £53450 on a £1.069mil property.*

The estate agent we are using in Woolacombe has offered a property lawyer that they have used before. Must I instruct this solicitor?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will often endorse a law firm. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


There are an abundance of guidebooks giving details on doing your own legal work such as House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing . Do I actually need to use a lawyer in Yate for my home move?


Theoretically there is no reason why a home buyer cannot decide to embark on the your own conveyancing unaided.

However, a solicitor typically handles a large array of tasks such as chasing completion statements or maintaining constant communication with agents many of which require training. In addition lawyers must carry the applicable indemnity insurance to protect you from any professional omissions.
