Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor quote to own property?

A.

Numerous firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs may inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any additional costs found in the terms needs to be fair and only apply in cases where the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?

A.

Some firms attempt to pass off additional costs as disbursements. It is not always obvious if a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it should be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

What length of time should I expect it to take my designated property lawyer to handle all of the legal formalities on a maisonette in a house?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between a month and twelve weeks contingent on a number of issues such as the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or whether the property is freehold or leasehold.

Q.

The local agent has offered the lawyer. Is it a good idea to instruct them?

Many agents in Eltham will have a referral arrangement with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

My mortgage lender will be Market Harborough Building Society, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased legal costs for house purchasers. We, fortunately, are able to act for many lenders.

Q.

What type of local authority searches concerning the uncertain risk of local flooding around Bristol will a conveyancing solicitor in Frenchay actually apply for?

A.

An important part of the legal due diligence procedure involves your conveyancer carrying out conveyancing and environmental searches that go into details in relation to Frenchay flooding. On (27-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the Bristol Frome from Nibley to Stapleton at the River Frome and tributaries between Chipping Sodbury and Bristol Floating Harbour

Q.

We are buying in Frenchay. How do I check that the property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Parts of Frenchay considered be of special architectural or historic interest, like stretches of canals, may be designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

Where do I learn additional data on the upkeep of conservation areas in Frenchay and Frenchay?

A.

Conservation are issues e.g. private spaces, removal of existing windows or street posts are overseen by the local authority (South Gloucestershire). English Heritage now maintain records of the state of conservation areas.
