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.

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.

What will the fee for our searches be?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches substantially varies, depending on the particular searches ordered. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Hanham?

A.

Hanham is located in Bristol City Council, The Council House, College Green, BS1 5TR, Call: 0117 922 3000

Q.

How is stamp duty assessed?

A.

The SDLT due will depend on the valuation. On a £159000 house, stamp duty will be £1590.*

*This information correct as of August 2012

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.

I would like to know which Hanham lenders your solicitors work with. Whose panels are you a member of?

A.

Most lenders in Hanham are on our solicitors' panels. Hanham lenders and mortgage specialists include Hawkins M R, 27 Selworthy, Bristol, BS15 9RJ, and MTI Independent Ltd, 42 High St, Hanham, Bristol, BS15 3DP.

Q.

What causes conveyancing for a Hanham property purchase appear to be so drawn out? Isn't it just filling out forms?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property can take more time. Homeward Legal appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and strive to curtail their burden where feasible. Reasons for delay include waiting for responses from third parties.
