Q.

We are trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Stapleton. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, however extra costs may be added into the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees needs to be reasonable. They only come into force where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote

Q.

How do I find out more info about the conservation areas in Stapleton and Stapleton?

A.

Local Stapleton conservation area issues including area development, the addition of stone cladding or traffic signs are handled by the local authority (Bristol). English Heritage administer records in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to getting worse.

Q.

What precautions can we take to circumvent paying stamp duty in Stapleton?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually due on property over £125,000. We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme. These schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been several government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your solicitor..

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search? We are purchasing on the same street as a church in Stapleton.

A.

Owners of property near to nearby church property are expected to subsidise repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Stapleton properties is likely to exist. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area include Holy Trinity, St John the Baptist, St Martin and St Mary.

Q.

What amount of time should the conveyancing process take? We have a buyer ready.

A.

Generally speaking, the number of weeks needed to transfer a home will vary. This is dependent on numerous issues affecting the property, such as whether the property is leasehold. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, we however drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.

Q.

Does my assigned Stapleton conveyancer tell me about the cost of council tax for a Band B house prior to completion?

A.

Your solicitor will write to the governing Bristol local authority to ask about the current council tax rates, which will then be added to the conveyancing report on title. Council tax rates for residents of Stapleton are listed on the Bristol local authority site. At the time of writing, 21 June 2012, rates are as follows:
