Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

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

Q.

Bookshops now have an abundance of very helpful publications giving details on by passing the solicitor for example House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing by Joesph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. Do I therefore need to instruct a property lawyer in Shirehampton ?

A.

There are no arguments why a buyer cant take care of the greater majority of the your own conveyancing without the help of Shirehampton conveyancer. That said, a Shirehampton conveyancer typically handles a significant number of functions such as understanding the practical side of the process and handling retentions which need training. Critically amateur lawyers do not have sufficient insurance cover which all firms and their solicitors must pay for.

Q.

Is there an authority that has any online record on the standard of the conservation areas in Shirehampton?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain information in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the exposure

to standards slipping. Conservation area matters including what can be demolished or vacant buildings are regulated by the local Bristol planning authority.

Q.

How can conveyancing require weeks?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a home may experience many unexpected delays. We endeavour to reduce the burden of these delays whenever it is possible.

Q.

When do we need to get a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, as soon as possible, as there are a number of tasks which may begin straight away. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a sale enables relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Shirehampton solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

How does the Shirehampton solicitor advise on the risk and history of a flood to properties in Shirehampton on an Edwardian property we intend to purchase?

A.

A lawyer will conduct environmental searches that should include Shirehampton historical flood risk data. A recent check (18-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the Severn Estuary at Oldbury-on-Severn, Northwick and Avonmouth at the Tidal River Avon between Shirehampton Park and the Avonmouth Bridge including Pill and Shirehampton

Q.

The owner looks to have installed unseemly doors on the flat which I think might possibly infringe the Shirehampton conservation area guidelines.

A.

Part of the conveyancing process includes procurement of searches of Bristol local authority to confirm conservation area status and consent for any alterations. .

Q.

Is a purchase repossession fee a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Every disbursement and fee should be identified on a quote. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your conveyancing quote.
