Q.

Local points of interest in Kingswood

A.

Charfield St James Churches Conservation Trust and Ozleworth St Nicholas of Myra Churches Conservation Trust are close to Kingswood.

The closest hospital to Kingswood is Berkeley.

Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

This topic catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs are frequently hidden in small print. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional charges which are listed in terms and conditions needs to be fair.

Q.

As a consequence of the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am wondering whether property environmental searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Property environmental searches carried out by your Kingswood conveyancing solicitor should include a more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

It is not uncommon for buyers to contact a neighbour or local resident for additional confidence.

Q.

Is an administration fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

A quote should clearly state all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote.

Q.

Apparently, uranium (U) soil contamination may be an issue in Kingswood. Can you advise?

A.

Restrictions exist in order to limit topsoil contamination, but some will remain in the environment for decades. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contaminants like industrial chemicals and organohalides.

Q.

Does my Kingswood property lawyer carry out any searches on the Gloucestershire Victorian terraced bungalow I am intending to buy?

A.

The common legal protocol is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search and perhaps unique particular such as Planning and local information.

Q.

Are the many conservation areas in Kingswood likely to affect us?

A.

With over 8,000 areas of conservation throughout the country, the regions near or within Kingswood will include several areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' designated as protected. Your solicitor will be able to provide more details and discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

Do I need to make use of the firm of solicitors put forward by my agent?

A.

It is common for agents to endorse a solicitor, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Is it costly to circumvent paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty reduction should be treated with extreme caution, because these schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail.
