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 a drainage search a fee or disbursement?

A.

An ideal quote will itemise fees and disbursements, clearly stating which is which. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

I am purchasing a £537000. What should be determined for stamp duty rates?

Q.

Will my Thornbury property solicitor report back to me about the cost of council tax for a Band G house before exchanging contracts?

A solicitor will consult with the South Gloucestershire local council to find out the latest council tax charges which will then be added to the conveyancer's title report.

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.

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.

Q.

What sort of environmental searches into the risk of flooding around Gloucestershire will my conveyancing solicitor in Thornbury be able to do?

A.

An essential step in the conveyancing procedure involves your conveyancing lawyer carrying out conveyancing searches (environmental) that provide specific information about the potential risk of flooding in Thornbury.
