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.

We are going to sell our jointly owned building at an auction, will you provide us with fast Hanham conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Our company have a very speed focused approach when completing the transfer of title as fast as possible.

Our approach is different as we use the very latest productivity systems . We assign vendors a CQS solicitor practiced at communicate with everyone in the buyer and seller chain e.g. solicitors, for a fast exchange of contracts.

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 is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping is common across England and Wales and happens when a seller accepts a purchaser's offer, only to later dismiss it in favour of another buyer's higher offer. The will be a danger of gazumping in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can.

Q.

How is stamp duty assessed?

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

Q.

In what ways can my Hanham property lawyer advise on the risk of possible flooding in the Hanham region?

A.

Q.

What will the Hanham property solicitor advise if the property is inside a Bristol local authority conservation area which has inappropriate PVC windows installed?

A.

Bristol council Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by your Hanham conveyancing solicitor should see the existence of the appropriate council approval for any development to the building.
