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 E - £1,919.00
  • Band F - £2,267.00
  • Band G - £2,616.00
  • Band H - £3,140.00

Our chosen conveyancing solicitors are highly results driven completing the legal process as rapidly as realistically possible.

Q.

Do 'conveyancing searches' matter?

A.

Searches are common collection of queries performed on your behalf, such as a gypsum search. Searches are not a substitute for a survey.
