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.

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.

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.

Q.

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.

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. Correct rates for properties in Bishopsworth are published online at the Bristol local authority website. As at, 17 March 2013, the different rates are:

  • Band F - £2,267.00
  • Band G - £2,616.00
  • Band H - £3,140.00

Q.

Is it a sensible idea to hold off paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

We strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been several government initiatives, such as for first-time buyers. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

I really need to find fast property lawyers in Bishopsworth - is that you guys?

A.

We only ever introduce you to chosen solicitors that will communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller chain . Moreover our network of property lawyers are selected because they have invested in the latest online completion and IT systems to finish the property sale swiftly.

Q.

We are on a short deadline, needing organise a fast purchase, what should we organise to accelerate the process?

A.

Instructing a proactive solicitor is crucial to fast conveyancing. There are, however, several tasks you as the purchaser could do. These include:

  • pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible
  • quickly completing and return any forms
  • arranging any finances require to complete the purchase

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.
