Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Bridgwater for a £489,000 house?

A.

Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs may be added into the terms. Any extra costs needs to be fair and be applicable if your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a house in Worle. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners.

Q.

I am purchasing a flat in a designated Bridgwater conservation area, how do I locate data on the state of upkeep?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Bridgwater and throughout England.

Local conservation areas are nominated by the local Sedgemoor planning authority, who manage conservation area concerns from what can be demolished to derelict buildings.

Q.

What are Bridgwater's property searches?

A.

Searches are enquiries carried out on your behalf, such as a local authority search. Searches are strongly recommended, however they refer specifically to issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

In Bridgwater, is topsoil remediation of contaminated land an option?

A.

Where land has been contaminated by previous industrial use, remediation is often feasible, but it can be costly. For more insight, contact Durleigh Turf, 2 Enmore Rd, Durleigh, Bridgwater, TA5 2AW.

Q.

Could our conveyancing incorporate any additional charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any additional charges for your conveyancing legal work. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

How many weeks does it take the solicitor to conduct the legal formalities on a semi detached Regency home in Bridgwater?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between a month and 12 weeks, which can be hampered by any number of issues such as the speed of the seller's conveyancer, or the time taken to get a mortgage offer.

Our chosen property lawyers are exceptionally focused on speed and communication, with the intention of completing in as little time as possible.

Q.

Can Bridgwater ex-industrial site soil still be contaminated?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Other sources of contaminated land include trichloroethylene and groundwater contamination.
