Q.

I need to find a company that offers cheap conveyancing. and what is included?

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees may be added into the small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable and come into force only if your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, 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.

Q.

Does the solicitor in Ashton report back to me about the amount of council tax to be paid for a Band C flat before completing on the purchase?

A.

Your conveyancer will approach the governing council to reveal the current council tax rates, which will subsequently be set out in the title report. The latest council tax charges for homes in Ashton are published online at the Bristol local authority website. At the time of writing, 14 November 2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,047.00
  • Band B - £1,221.00
  • Band C - £1,395.00
  • Band D - £1,570.00
  • Band E - £1,919.00
  • Band F - £2,267.00
  • Band G - £2,616.00
  • Band H - £3,140.00

Q.

Does your firm deal with the conveyancing for auction properties in Ashton?

A.

Our firm is accustomed to working with property auction protocols. Frequently specialist auction lots like development properties, are included in auctions and these demand added fact-finding by the lawyer. Lawyers therefore recommend that auction buyers appoint

a fast lawyer well before the property auction date to allow time for a detailed report of the lot. After the auction day arrives your appointed property lawyer is totally prepared for completing the conveyancing in the limited time as usually required by the terms if sale.

Q.

Can you explain why purchase conveyancing work requires weeks?

A.

Conveyancing will sometimes take more time. Homeward Legal aim to minimise the cost of these delays by using fast search providers. Delays can include waiting for a mortgage offer.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Ashton?

A.

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

Q.

The web is full of an increasing number resources about DIY conveyancing for example House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing. Do we necessarily want to use a conveyancing solicitor in Ashton for my move?

A.

If you are so inclined refer to the various books, you can take care of the legal process without approaching a specialist conveyancer in Ashton. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor is in charge of a huge array of tasks such as chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries and ensuring listed building alterations are compliant which really need a qualified professional. Above all else have a go conveyancers will not have appropriate cover which qualified solicitors firms are required to carry.

Q.

I am buying a church rectory in the parish of Pitchcombe. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Ashton parish in which you are buying, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Ashton's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

We are using a lender in Bristol, and need to know which Ashton lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Which panels are your solicitors on?

A.

Homeward Legal can work with the majority of lenders assisting buyers in Ashton. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Choice Mortgage Centre, 2 Commercial St, Camborne, TR14 8JY, Rider & Co, 2 Royal Sq, St. Ives, TR26 2ND, and D & G Mortgages & Insurances, 9 Hellesvean Cl, St. Ives, TR26 2HQ.
