Living in the Horfield area? ;

Horfield is nearby at 1 1/2 mile off the M32 junction entry 2 Northbound.

Q.

Local points of interest in Horfield

A.

Westbury College Gatehouse National Trust Bristol St Paul Churches Conservation Trust and Bristol St John the Baptist Churches Conservation Trust are around Horfield.

The closest hospital to Horfield is Southmead Bristol.

Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £170k residence? We are looking for an affordable conveyancing estimate.

A.

Many law firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees may inflate the final bill. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on your quote

Q.

At what point do I need to arrange a conveyancing solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

With few exceptions, as soon as possible. Promptly instructing a solicitor can limit the risk of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

How can we calculate stamp duty?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed is dependent on the valuation. For a property bought for £588000, the SDLT rate is £23520.

Q.

How much would my conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches varies substantially, depending on the searches required. Less common searches, used in addition to a standard bundle, include a gypsum search.

Q.

If we plan to buy near Horfield, in the parish of Dorsington, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The property lawyer could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is located. In older areas of Horfield, chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Is it difficult to avoid paying stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation scheme should not be considered when purchasing in Horfield. Such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters.

Q.

Would the fixtures and fittings include things like bannisters?

A.

Commonly, there is no strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

In what ways does my Horfield conveyancing solicitor advise me on the risk and history of local flooding in the Horfield area?

A.

An important step in the conveyancing process involves a conveyancer carrying out conveyancing searches that go in certain details in relation to the local Horfield flood risk. At the time of writing (22/02/13) reports on the Environment Agency flood reports website do not reveal any flood warnings in Horfield.
