Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £458k property?

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees which are listed in your solicitor's terms ought to be clearly defined and be applicable solely where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are aiming to purchase in Oldland. Is it that necessary that conveyancing searches are ordered?

A.

Searches are a typical collection of queries requested by the buyer's conveyancing solicitor, and will only cover issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

We are buying on a Oldland ex-industrial use land. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Oldland industry and natural causes can cause soil contamination. Also considering issues such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and water contaminants such as industrial chemicals, contaminants affecting Oldland property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

What type of searches concerning the risk of floods in the Gloucestershire area will a Oldland conveyancing solicitor be able to do on a Regency maisonette we are going to buy?

A.

A conveyancer conducts standard formal conveyancing and environmental searches that will include Oldland historical flood risk data. Furthermore the property lawyer in Oldland might possibly suggest a more detailed search.

Q.

DIY conveyancing without using a Oldland lawyer appears to be becoming possible when buying a maisonette but would it actually be realistic ?

A.

Theoretically speaking there are no reasons why you should not conduct your own conveyancing on your own. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor is in charge of a huge array of assignments including checking contracts and collating and preparing contract and package many of which really need experience. AT any rate lawyers are required by the Law Society to get the appropriate insurance to safeguard you from any professional omissions.

Q.

To complete on our leasehold flat purchase ASAP, how can we organise fast legal work?

A.

Finding a proactive, diligent conveyancer is the key to faster conveyancing. Beyond that, there are a range of tasks you can do, such as, keeping in regular contact with your conveyancer, getting your mortgage offer in place and quickly answering your conveyancer's questions.

Q.

I am purchasing a £875k Oldland home, how is stamp duty worked out?

A.

The rate of stamp duty that will be due is based on the value of the property. On a £875k house, stamp duty will be £35000.

Q.

What can a Oldland conveyancing solicitor advise if the property we are buying is within a South Gloucestershire council conservation area which has out of place new windows added?

A.

Local authority enquiries conducted by your solicitor should find out whether the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of consent for changes to the property will be asked for.
