How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms that buyers often do not check. Fees listed in the small print should be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Should I get a building survey?


We advise that Totterdown property purchasers book a survey when you plan to buy in Totterdown. There can be a range of concerns that affect a property, for example failed double glazing or roof damage. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


What are fixtures and fittings?


New owners in Totterdown will often be frustrated with the lack of formality around which fixtures and fittings are included. Fixtures and fittings are regularly not considered, making agreement of a comprehensive list of included items so essential.


Having read about the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England, I am questioning whether environmental searches may not be detailed enough?

A thorough conveyancing solicitor in Totterdown will suggest that you carry out conveyancing searches if the enviro search spots a any kind of Totterdown flood risk area data

For added assurance it may be sensible to contact a neighbour of the property.


What are Totterdown property searches?


Conveyancing searches are questions raised by the property lawyer, such as a coal mining search. Searches are strongly recommended, however they only deal with the legal aspects of the purchase.


Doing your own conveyancing without using a conveyancing solicitor in Totterdown looks to be possible when buying a maisonette but would it be insensible ?


It is certainly possible to do the legal process yourself.

The truth is however that a conveyancer typically handles a large number of functions e.g. interpreting replies to enquiries and applying for searches which require a skilled professional. However legal firms are duty bound to be in possession of the appropriate insurance cover in order to protect you from any failures.


I plan to buy a residence in the parish of Cirencester. Should we order a chancel search?


Regardless of the Totterdown parish in which you are purchasing, the conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a house where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.


To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we arrange a fast conveyancing process in Totterdown?


As is often argued, faster conveyancing is crucial to is to use a proactive and experienced property lawyer. When identifying an appropriate a property lawyer, ask yourself the following: Do they order searches immediately? Was there a delay delivering a quote? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
