How can my solicitor in Bedminster report back on the risk and history of flooding around Bedminster on an Edwardian maisonette we are hoping to buy?
Your solicitor will apply for official property conveyancing searches that incorporate Bedminster historical flood risk data.
What average time should it take my designated solicitor to conduct all of the legal formalities on an apartment in a recently developed building?
It can take anywhere from 3 weeks and twelve weeks, which can be hampered by a number of issues, like the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain.
Our proactive property lawyers are highly focused on communication exchanging in as little time as we possibly can.

Will you need a chancel search? I am purchasing a Bedminster property by a 1600s priory.
In Bedminster, some owners can be required to contribute towards maintenance of nearby church property. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Aldhelms and St Michael & All Angels.
The property seller has unfortunately added ill-suited roof antenna to the flat which we think might infringe General Cemetery conservation area guidelines.
Part of the legal due diligence when buying a property involves the application for searches of Bristol council to ascertain conservation area status and the required formal approval for alterations. .
