Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing in Cirencester?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs may increase your final invoice. Any disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Environmental searches are fine but with recent weather changes e g the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they comfort enough to ascertain sufficient information about the risk of flooding in Cirencester?

A.

Flood searches carried out by a conveyancer in Cirencester should include the more rigorous search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

You might be able to speak to a local resident for additional local information.

Q.

Our agent has named the conveyancing solicitor. Will it be faster to instruct this firm?

A.

Your agent will be able to pressure a conveyancing firm they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore persuade a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

I am buying in Cirencester. Can I establish whether the property is in a conservation area?

A.

With 9000 conservation areas throughout the country, the areas in or near Cirencester will include a range of areas of special architectural or historic interest designated as protected. Your solicitor will be able to advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

When do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, instructing as soon as possible is wise. The legal work can then begin immediately. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce the likelihood of the transaction falling through.

Q.

For a home valued at £620000, how is stamp duty calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty in Cirencester will rely on the value of the house. On a £620000 house, stamp duty will be £24800.*

Q.

Do you have low cost solicitors that manage the conveyancing of property auction properties in Cirencester?

A.

We are highly experienced with bidders at auction. Our panel of solicitors and licensed conveyancers have been instructed by many buyers and sellers at regional auctions that, amongst others, include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Savvy buyers will instruct a local lawyer as ahead of time as they can to give enough time for a detailed investigation of the legal papers for the lot prior to the property auction date.

Thereafter, following the auction day your experienced lawyer is totally focused on concluding all of the legal work in the limited time as usually required by the terms of sale.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like nickel?

A.

Measures are taken across Cirencester and the region to identify and remediate soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as chlorinated solvents and groundwater contaminants like household chemicals, will be included in an environmental search.
