Q.

We need to find affordable conveyancing. What should we check?

A.

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are often hiding in the terms. Costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable.

Q.

Does my assigned Bradford On Avon conveyancer inform me about the cost of council tax on a Band B house before exchange?

A.

The conveyancer will consult with the Wiltshire local authority to reveal the current council tax band and rates, which should be written in the conveyancing report on title.

  • Band G - £2,525.00
  • Band H - £3,031.00

Q.

When should we speak to a solicitor?

A.

The short answer is, earlier is preferable, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may begin very early in the process. A number of sources advocate holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £123,000 property, how could we speed up our transaction?

A.

Importantly, contacting a proactive conveyancer is crucial to fast conveyancing. That said, there are a number of things you can do to accelerate the legal work. These include:

  • encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly
  • promptly answering your conveyancer's questions
  • organising your finances

Q.

Bradford On Avon conveyancers apply for formal searches when they are instructed to act for a home purchase client but what actual ones?

A.

Q.

Myself and my partner are purchasing a residence in Bradford On Avon. How do I establish whether the residence is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as 19th century suburbs, will be defined as conservation areas. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Bradford On Avon.

Q.

What length of time does it take the conveyancing solicitor to exchange contracts all of the legal work for a maisonette in an Edwardian property?

A.

Completion can take anywhere between 3 weeks and twelve weeks, which can be affected by various factors, for example the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or whether the property is leasehold, Freehold or share of freehold. Our highly conveyancing solicitors are very results-orientated you moving home as rapidly as realistically possible.
