Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a £294,000 property?

A.

Many conveyancers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Can Bedminster brownfield site topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Bedminster, but some very localised cases of contamination in Bedminster may pose unacceptably high risk. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like landfill leachate, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

In regards to the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am concerned that flood risk searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

Your Bedminster lawyer should always get additional flood risk searches if the first searches establishes a any kind of Bedminster area flood risk

For extra assurance it may be prudent to contact a neighbour of the property.

Q.

Which Bedminster mortgage lender panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

We have worked with the vast majority of lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Bedminster, including Imagine Mortgages Ltd, 1 Straits Pde, Bristol, BS16 2LA, Complete Mortgage Solutions, 35 Church Road, Bishopsworth, Bristol, BS13 8JL, and Mortgage Style Ltd, Park House/10 Park St, Bristol, BS1 5HX.

Q.

Can you advise how I defer paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation is not advised, because these schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Siddington St Peter?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Will the property lawyer in Bedminster inform me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band B maisonette prior to exchanging contracts?

A.

The lawyer will speak to the council to discover the latest council tax band and rates, which will then be included in the report on title. The latest council tax charges for homes in Bedminster are detailed online at the Bristol council website. At the time of writing (27 October 2012) band 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.

Is a building survey advisable when buying a property?

A.

It is strongly recommended that all purchasers instruct a surveyor to carry out a survey. There are a range of defects that will impact a property, for example dry rot, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.
