Things to do in Clifton

The nearest hospital is Bristol, Redland Hill.

Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £768,000 property?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Clifton?

A.

Clifton is located in Bristol City Council, The Council House, College Green, BS1 5TR, phone: 0117 922 3000

Q.

The lender will be Irish Permanent, what will we need to check?

A.

Prior to recent changes, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. In some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal can act for many lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Should we get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a flat conversion by a priory in Clifton.

A.

There are thousands of Church of England and Church of Wales parishes throughout England and Wales. Property owners within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in the area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St John the Evangelist, St John the Evangelist, Eastwood View Church, Oakhill and St Cuthbert.

Q.

The current owner looks to have fitted unseemly cladding on the property which I think might break the Market Rasen conservation area guidelines.

A.

An integral part of the conveyancing process involves the application for searches of Bristol planning authority to see conservation area status and the required consent for developments. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Clifton conveyancing solicitor will recommend all options, which include seeking from the council or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

Can selenium contaminate Clifton soil?

A.

There are wide-ranging regulations in place to manage soil contamination. The local authority for Clifton will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

How is Clifton contaminated land identified when purchasing?

A.

A broad range of contaminants can damage land. Issues such as waste disposal sites and overhead transmission lines will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

We are on a short deadline, needing ensure fast conveyancing, how can we speed things up?

A.

As is often argued, fast conveyancing is the key to instruct a experienced lawyer. There are numerous things you, as the purchaser, could do, including, completing all forms as soon as possible, getting your mortgage offer in place and contacting your lawyer regularly.
