Thinking of re-locating to the Avonmouth area? Helpful local transport and public service details -

Avonmouth's nearest airport is Bristol Airport. Avonmouth station is about a mile from Avonmouth.

Avonmouth is very close at under a miles of junction entry 18 Southbound of the M5.

The neighbouring hospital for Avonmouth is Bristol, Redland Hill.

Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I need to find affordable conveyancing.

A.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any additional costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and be applicable if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on your conveyancing quote

Q.

Flood risk searches are all well and good but considering recent flooding for instance the flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they sufficient to investigate enough about the evolving risk of flooding in Avonmouth?

A.

A competent conveyancing solicitor in Avonmouth should get additional specialist environmental searches if the enviro search establishes a Avonmouth flood risk.

For more peace of mind why not get in touch with a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

I am buying a £913000 house in Avonmouth. How is stamp duty worked out?

A.

Stamp Duty is based on the property's value. For a home bought for £913000, stamp duty will be £36520 (accurate March 2013).

Q.

Is Avonmouth soil likely to be contaminated by beryllium?

A.

There are considerable regulations to limit top-soil contamination. The local authority for Avonmouth will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

What can impact land in Avonmouth. Are these thoroughly investigated?

A.

A range of contaminants may spoil land in Avonmouth, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a property is affected by contaminants in the area like proximity to landfill sites and local historic industrial processes.

Q.

Should I get a property survey for our home purchase?

A.

It is recommended that Avonmouth buyers arrange a house surveyor. Many problems have a negative impact on a property. These can include subsidence or poor ventilation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a home in the parish of Pitchcombe. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Avonmouth or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. In Avonmouth's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Pitchcombe, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

I have been reading about doing your own conveyancing when buying and selling a flat , Is it reckless to carry out the conveyancing on a DIY basis on our own?

A.

Legally speaking there are no arguments why a buyer shouldn't complete the majority of the legal and technical work without assistance. The truth is however that a property solicitor typically handles a long list of functions such as stock transfer forms and notifying the Land Registry of new charges most of which are more safely handled with appropriate adequate training.
