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.

What particular property searches does my Clifton property solicitor conduct when buying a Clifton flat?

A.

The regular procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search as well as any area-specific searches, which may include a Land charges full Search.

Q.

Which Clifton mortgage lender panels are your solicitors on?

A.

Most lenders in Clifton are on our panels. Clifton lenders and mortgage specialists include Independent, 401 Gloucester Rd, Horfield, Bristol, BS7 8TS, Mortgage Advice Co Ltd, 619 Fishponds Rd, Fishponds, Bristol, BS16 3BA, and Independent Mortgage Associates, Monarch House/1-7 Smyth Rd, Bristol, BS3 2BX.

Q.

Following recent news about the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are apprehensive that flood risk searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

A good lawyer in Clifton should always include conveyancing and environmental searches if the first searches flag up a significant risk.

For extra history might be able to speak to a local resident.

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.

When in the process is it wise to find a conveyancing solicitor to handle our transaction?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier, the better. Some groups advocate postponing 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.

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.

How do I find out more info on the upkeep of the conservation areas in Clifton?

A.

Local Clifton conservation area matters, like trees, removal of front gardens for parking or excessive road signs are presided over by the local authority (Bristol). English Heritage, a government body, now maintain records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.
