Q.

I am trying to find a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Numerous property lawyers promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in small print. Additional costs included in the small print needs to be fair. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on a conveyancing quote

Q.

How can the Bishopsworth solicitor advise on the potential risk of possible flooding at Bishopsworth?

A.

A key step in the legal due diligence process carried out when buying a property involves the lawyer making an application for conveyancing and environmental searches that give you details on the risk of flooding in Bishopsworth.

Q.

How can we determine more data about the conservation areas in Bishopsworth and Bishopsworth?

A.

Local Bishopsworth conservation areas for instance the historic layout of roads, coloured road surfaces or vacant buildings are presided over by the local Bristol planning authority. English Heritage, a government body, have put together a list of the state of conservation areas.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Bishopsworth. Are they an issue?

A.

Residential property in Bishopsworth would be contaminated by a broad range of natural causes, such as hazardous and regulated installations or waste treatment sites in the area. An environmental search will offer more detail.

Q.

Following recent news about the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am concerned that environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

A competent solicitor in Bishopsworth should always get additional informative environmental searches (Landmark search) if the standard searches spots a local Bishopsworth flood risk.

For added assurance it may be prudent to get in touch with a local resident.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search? We are purchasing close by parish land in Bishopsworth.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Bishopsworth Church of England properties where chancel liability may apply include St Peter.

Q.

My agent has put forward the property lawyer. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a law firm to handle your conveyancing. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Could Bishopsworth soil be contaminated by uranium (U)?

A.

There are comprehensive regulations in order to limit soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as pesticides, will be included in an environmental search.
