Elms Day Thornbury is the nearest hospital.

Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Numerous firms offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees are often hiding in small print. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on your conveyancing quote Fees should be reasonable. They only come into force where the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk set up to very fast completions on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Thornbury?

A.

Yes - We are auction specialists and often act for buyers at auction. Homeward Legal strongly recommend buyers to choose a property conveyancing lawyer before the auction day so there is time for a full report of the legal documents.

Subsequently, immediately after the day of the auction a lawyer will need to be prepared for complete the transaction inside 28 days as usually required by the terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

I am buying a restored chapel in Gloucester St Michael. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. In older areas of Thornbury, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a house where church

councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What can fees for my conveyancing searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal, clients are charged no more than £249 for a standard bundle of searches. More uncommon searches include a lead mining search.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for homes in Thornbury?

A.

Property can be contaminated by a broad range of factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants like limestone or gypsum quarrying should be considered as part of the appropriate search. Land / Premises At, Aust Road, Gloucestershire, BS35 4AS is a source of potential local contamination in Thornbury.

Q.

Can you explain why the purchase conveyancing process in Thornbury takes such a long time?

A.

The Thornbury conveyancing process can be lengthy. We do our best to diminish their consequences by proactively handling all enquiries. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

My wife and I are buying in Thornbury. Can we confirm that the house is in a conservation area?

A.

There are several areas of conservation around Thornbury. The solicitor handling your purchase provide more details and discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search? I am buying on the same street as a 15th Century rectory in Thornbury.

A.

Property owners in an area near a church in the area must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Thornbury Church of England properties include St Anna, St Margaret, St Mary's and St Paul's.
