Q.

I need fixed rate Montpelier conveyancing. What do we need to consider?

A.

Several conveyancers claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Any additional charges should be clearly defined.

Q.

In what ways can a Montpelier conveyancing solicitor report back on the potential risk of flooding to properties in Montpelier on a Regency house I am buying?

A.

A residential property lawyer will apply for official environmental searches, which include Montpelier flood risk data.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Montpelier?

A.

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

Q.

We've got a conveyancing quote from you. Will we be invoiced any additional charges when the transaction completes?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden extra costs to transfer a property. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

In relation to the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am concerned that flood searches might not be sufficient?

A.

A good conveyancer in Montpelier should always get thorough environmental searches (Landmark search) if the environmental search identifies a Montpelier flood risk.

For more assurance you can always get in touch with a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

Does my assigned solicitor in Montpelier inform me about the cost of the council tax for a Band H apartment before completing on the purchase?

A.

The property lawyer will contact the Bristol local authority to reveal the up to date council tax rates, which should be detailed in the conveyancer's title report.

The correct charges for Montpelier are published at the Bristol local authority website. At the time of writing (25 September 2012) band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,047.00
  • Band B - £1,221.00
  • Band C - £1,395.00
  • Band D - £1,570.00
  • Band E - £1,919.00
  • Band F - £2,267.00
  • Band G - £2,616.00
  • Band H - £3,140.00

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Southrop, near Montpelier?

A.

Your lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In Montpelier's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of Southrop, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Are there many lenders with Montpelier offices?

A.

We work with the majority of lenders serving Montpelier purchasers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Montpelier include Mortgage Cafe, Centre Gate/Colston Av, Bristol, BS1 4TR, Independent Mortgage Associates, Monarch House/1-7 Smyth Rd, Bristol, BS3 2BX, and Charcol, Whitefriars/Lewins Mead, Bristol, BS1 2NT. Your solicitor should be able to carry out any relevant lender-imposed searches or checks.
