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


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


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like radiators?


Purchasers will often be frustrated with the lack of formality around fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


Which local authority is responsible for Bishopsworth?


Bishopsworth is located in Bristol City Council, The Council House, College Green, BS1 5TR, phone: 0117 922 3000


Are your lawyers experienced enough to complete within 28 days of exchange on the conveyancing for auction properties in Bishopsworth?


Our team put together legal documentation for vendors and regularly take instructions from auction buyers and sellers. It is a smart decision for auction buyers to decide on a Bishopsworth lawyer as early as possible to allow adequate time for a full review of the legal documents in advance of the auction day arrives.

Subsequently, following the date of the auction your lawyer is prepared for swiftly finishing the purchase in a month as required .


What average time should it take for my assigned lawyer to get through the conveyancing formalities on a flat in a house in Bishopsworth?


The legal process can take anywhere from a month to 12 weeks depending on any number of factors like the efficiency of the seller's property solicitor, or whether additional searches are required. Homeward Legal's solicitors are highly focused on speed and communication completing as promptly we can.


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


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.


Will the Bishopsworth solicitor tell me about the amount of council tax to be paid for a Band F property prior to completing on the purchase?


A conveyancer will consult with the relevant council to find out the relevant council tax rates, which will subsequently be included in the report on title.
