Q.

I need to find a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a home. as we are on a budget.

A.

Various solicitors purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees may be added into the solicitor's terms that homeowners often do not check.

Q.

We plan to purchase a residence in Kingsbury Episcopi. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

Your Portishead conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is found. Although some church councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

How do I go about determine whether the Portishead conservation area is at risk?

Local conservation areas are nominated by the local North Somerset planning authority, who oversee the state of the area including things like neglected buildings, coloured road surfaces and paths. English Heritage, a government body, keep a detailed list in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas as well as the exposure to a worsening of the condition of the area.
