Commuting from the area? ;

Hanham's closest train station is Lawrence Hill at 2 miles and the nearest airport to Hanham is Bristol Airport (9 miles).

Hanham is approximately 3m of the M32 junction entry 2 Southbound.

Cossham Bristol is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote in Hanham. What do we need to consider?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer cheap conveyancing. However extra fees are often hiding in the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any fees included in the terms should be reasonable.

Q.

Should I get a survey?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly recommend that most purchasers book a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many issues that will impact a property, including poor ventilation or rotten roof timbers, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Which actual searches does the Hanham lawyer carry out when acting on a Hanham home?

A.

The routine legal protocol will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environmental, and possibly unique particular for instance Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).

Q.

We are intending to buy a church rectory in Shenington. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a residence in Hanham or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer could advise that a chancel search be

taken out. Through some church councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Hanham. Are these thoroughly investigated?

A.

Residential property is contaminated by many natural and human-influenced issues, like shallow mining and shallow mining. An environmental search can give more clarity. Land / Premises At, Bath Road, Avon, BS15 5RN is one such potential cause of local contamination.

Q.

My agent has offered a conveyancing. Should I instruct this solicitor?

A.

Agent referrals are a common path for purchasers to get a solicitor. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings include?

A.

There is no clear definition of fixtures and fittings, resulting in considerable confusion once the buyer moves in and the previous owner has taken certain items or fixtures with them. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

I am going to be moving out of our period building just outside Hanham into a building in Yate . What is the optimum stage to book a removals firm?

A.

We will advise that sellers wait organising removals until after the contracts have exchanged because a home moving date wont have been agreed. There are many local and national companies including Brunels, Unit 2 Bridge Rd Ind Est/Bridge Rd, Kingswood, Bristol, BS15 4TA on 0117 907 7855 or Hamptons Removals, 34 Lees Hill, Bristol, BS15 4TN Phone: 07941 542414.
