Gloucestershire's nearest station is Stroud. The closest airport to Gloucestershire is Gloucester Airport (11 miles s). Defford Airport (disused) Airport is 25 miles away.

Stroud Maternity is a nearby hospital.

Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing in Gloucestershire?

A.

Numerous conveyancers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied homeowners Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on your conveyancing quote Additional fees found in the terms should be reasonable and be applicable if the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How much can my conveyancing searches in Gloucestershire cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, subject to the searches your lender requires. These searches are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Is there something I can do to defer paying out for stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp duty is due on houses sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation is not recommended for purchases in Gloucestershire. Such schemes are expensive and very risky.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal able to 28 day completions on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Gloucestershire?

A.

Yes - The legal team prepare legal packs for vendors and regularly carry out work for buyers at auction. Our niche auction team of conveyancers have acted for countless successful bidders at regional property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop

(Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Canny buyers at auction tend to pick an auction experienced property lawyer as early as possible to allow for a full review of the auction legal papers before the date of the auction.

Thereafter, following the actual auction your chosen lawyer is thoroughly ready for finishing the legal side of things in a month as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

Our local agent has put forward the law firm who they generally use. Do we need to use them?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a commonplace route to find a solicitor. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

The current owner appears to have installed removal of chimney stacks to the house which I think may violate the Crescent conservation area guidelines.

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to confirm whether the property is located within a conservation area and whether any alterations have the required permission from the local authority.

Q.

Is it possible that some of the designated Gloucestershire conservation areas are in a bad state?

A.

An up-to-date inventory of the condition of conservation areas is assessed by English Heritage. This areas and information are currently viewable at the English Heritage website: Warmley with Siston is noted as very bad with low vulnerability and no significant change, Whitfield Tabernacle is noted as very bad with low vulnerability and unknown.

Q.

How early should we get a solicitor?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Gloucestershire, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may be performed immediately. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce the likelihood of your transaction falling through.
