Q.

A.

The nearest hospital is Bristol Eye.

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.

When in the conveyancing process do you need to arrange a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Simply, the faster you instruct the better. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce the likelihood of your purchase or sale stalling.

Q.

Will you need a chancel search? I am buying a house in Ashton.

A.

Owners of property near to nearby church property may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Churches in the local area include St John the Baptist and St Michael & All Angels.

Q.

How many weeks should it take my conveyancing solicitor to handle the conveyancing process for a semi detached forties home we are buying?

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from around a month and 3 months based on any number of factors such as the speed of the vendor's property lawyer, or the time taken to issue draft contracts.

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

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.

How is contaminated land in Ashton investigated?

A.

Land may have been contaminated by numerous human activities, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a specific residence is affected by contaminants including overhead transmission lines.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Could I have to pay any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

Regrettably, the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden costs. Be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

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:
