Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing in Chipping Sodbury?

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers Any extra charges found in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Which Chipping Sodbury lender panels are you on?

A.

Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Ok Mortgages Ltd, 21 Harlech Way, Willsbridge, Bristol, BS30 6US, Hawkins M R, 27 Selworthy, Bristol, BS15 9RJ, and New Era Financial Planning, 7 Madeline Rd, Bristol, BS16 3EN.

Q.

What can a Chipping Sodbury conveyancing solicitor advise if the property we want to buy is in a South Gloucestershire conservation area which has inappropriate dormer windows fitted?

A.

The local authority enquiries carried out by the solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will check if the property is inside a conservation area and any evidence of Coal Authority consent for changes to the property will be asked for. In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your Chipping Sodbury conveyancer will give you professional advice on the options, which include requesting from the appropriate local authority or getting covered by an indemnity policy.

Q.

We have found collections of handbooks giving details on doing the legal work yourself e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing by Joesph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. Do we need to use a Chipping Sodbury conveyancer ?

A.

In theory there is no reason why a home seller cant conduct your own conveyancing on your own.

In reality however, a lawyer is familiar with a huge array of activities such as chasing deeds and DS1 documents and checking replies to additional enquiries some of which require experience.

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed brownfield site. Is aluminium soil contamination likely?

A.

Chipping Sodbury and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contaminants like industrial chemicals and insecticides, contaminants affecting Chipping Sodbury property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Doynton?

A.

Your property solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Although some parish councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability. For property in the parish of Doynton, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Should I get a property survey?

A.

It is strongly advised that home buyers book a house surveyor to carry out a survey. There can be a range of defects that have a negative impact on a property, such as severe weathering and unsafe chimney circulation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What type of local conveyancing searches concerning the uncertain risk of a flood in the Gloucestershire region will my conveyancer in Chipping Sodbury actually apply for on a Regency home I am wanting to buy?

A.

A property solicitor will apply for formal environmental searches, which include Chipping Sodbury area flood risk information.
