I f I read up on the conveyancing process when buying and selling a house - Is it shrewd to do the legals myself?

A.

There is absolutely no argument why a home seller cannot take care of the majority of the conveyancing without an experienced conveyancer in Fishponds. The truth is however that a property solicitor handles a long list of actions such as approving contract or investigating title documents many of which require experience. More importantly have a go conveyancers are taking risks without sufficient insurance cover which qualified firms and their solicitors are made responsible to obtain.

Q.

When should you arrange a solicitor in Fishponds?

A.

In simple terms, the earlier, the better, as there are a number of tasks that may be performed straight away. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor for a sale may mean that paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

We are buying a property with Godiva Mortgages, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches noticeably varies. Searches are disbursements, and are charged at cost.

Q.

Why does the purchase conveyancing process take such a long time?

A.

Conveyancing will sometimes take more time for a variety of reasons. Some delays are beyond the solicitors' influence. We strive to reduce the effect of these delays by proactively handling all enquiries. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

In about five weeks we are hoping to be finally moving out of our detached house in Fishponds to a larger flat in Filton , what is the right point to book a house removal firm?

A.

The best advice is for buyers to hold off arranging the removals until after everyone has set a moving date that occurs once final contracts are signed. Typically house removals firms will charge a change of date fine . Local home mover companies include Removal Man & Vans, 38 Dunkirk Rd, Bristol, BS16 3DJ on 07910 577255 or APS Van & Man, 71 Gloucester Rd, Staple Hill, Bristol, BS16 4SL Phone: 0117 957 3191.

Q.

Is it necessary that we get a chancel search? We are buying a Fishponds property by church grounds.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Fishponds ecclesiastical properties which may give rise to chancel liability include All Saints, St John and St Mary.
