How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


Many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers


What are 'fixtures and fittings'?


Mainly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as alarm systems to walls and other surfaces, whereas fixtures are free-standing. For many transactions, this is not considered, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.


Do we need a chancel search? I am buying in Shirehampton.


Some owners in Shirehampton can be required to subsidise maintenance of a medieval church. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Shirehampton property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in Shirehampton include St Mary.


I need to find fast home moving solicitors in Shirehampton, is that your firm?


Usually house buying and selling property lawyers may be slow which creates huge amounts of stress to the home selling process.

By utilising state of the art case and work flow systems .

We always also assign customers a CQS conveyancing property lawyer qualified to communicate with the complete property chain including lenders, for a fast conclusion.


If we plan to buy in the parish of Sheepscombe, will we need a chancel search?


A conveyancing lawyer might recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will remain liability-free for new owners.


How many weeks may be accounted for conveyancing to transact a home generally take, on average?


The amount of time taken to transfer a house is not wholly predictable, influenced by a number of issues affecting the property, such as whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. We ensure your sale or purchase is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.
