Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £186,000 property?

A.

This issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms, left unregarded by busy sellers and buyers Additional costs which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does my assigned conveyancing solicitor in Redland report back to me about the cost of council tax for a Band H flat prior to exchange?

A.

A lawyer will approach the relevant Bristol local authority to enquire about the latest council tax rates, which will then be detailed in the conveyancer's title report. Correct charges for Redland are set out in detail at the Bristol local authority site. At the time of writing (22 August 2012) rates are:

  • Band A - £1,047.00
  • Band B - £1,221.00

  • Band F - £2,267.00
  • Band G - £2,616.00
  • Band H - £3,140.00

Q.

If I am purchasing on the same street as a 16th Century church in Redland, will you need a search for chancel liability?

A.

Owners of property proximate to an old church building are expected to pay for repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Redland properties is likely to exist. Redland ecclesiastical properties include Parish Church.

Q.

Is there something I can do to avoid paying out for stamp duty in Redland?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is generally payable on residential property over £125,000. We do not advise home buyers undertake any stamp duty mitigation, because these schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

I am buying in Redland, is it usually recommended that property searches are carried out?

A.

These searches are common collection of questions ordered on your behalf, such as a local authority search. These searches do give much needed information and context, but refer to legal facets of the purchase.

Q.

We have an urgent need for fast property lawyers in Redland, is that Homeward Legal?

A.

Sometimes house moving law firms are very slow which usually adds additional pressure to the house moving process.

Our approach is different - we use the very latest document and form assembly systems . We always provide you with vendors a CQS conveyancing lawyer who will communicate with everyone in the buyer and seller property chain e.g. other sellers agents, to accomplish a quick sale.

Q.

My estate agent has referred the conveyancing solicitor. Will it be cheaper to instruct this firm?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace way to find a solicitor. These referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.
