Q.

I am trying to find affordable conveyancing. What do we need to check for?

A.

Confusion over this topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in the terms that unknowing sellers and buyers have not reviewed A quote should state any disbursements to be paid. Extra fees included in terms and conditions should be fair. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is a deed of covenant a disbursement or a fee?

A.

A good quote should clearly state all disbursements and fees. This charge is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

Which environmental factors will contaminate land in Filton. Are these checked for thoroughly?

A.

Residential property in Filton would be contaminated by many environmental concerns. Contaminants including environmental radon sources and local waste transfer sites will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Will your Filton property lawyer carry out any searches on the Gloucestershire Victorian semi-detached cottage I am buying?

Q.

The estate agent has suggested a solicitors firm. Is it advisable to use them?

A.

Many estate agents will have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

What kind of environmental conveyancing searches into the risk of local flooding around Bristol will a property lawyer in Filton be able to apply for?
