Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

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.

Q.

When my partner and I are buying in Totterdown by a priory, would you recommend that we get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Chancel repair can require owners in Totterdown to contribute towards maintenance of nearby church land. Several sources are used to determine liability in Totterdown, including county histories.

Q.

What actual property should my property lawyer in Totterdown do when carrying out the conveyancing for a Totterdown home?

A.

The customary procedure is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly less common searches such as Contaminated Land.

Q.

In what ways does the lawyer in Totterdown advise me on the risk and history of flooding at Totterdown for a residential maisonette I am going to purchase?

The conveyancing lawyer will conduct standard property conveyancing searches, which include Totterdown flood risk information.

Q.

We are likely to move out of our period property just outside Totterdown into a house in Stoke Park . What is the right point to instruct a home removal firm?

A.

The ideal way is to hold off agreeing a removal firm until after everyone has fixed the final move date which commonly occurs once contracts are signed. For a local firm Ocean Removals, Top Floor Office /194a Wells Rd, Bristol, BS4 2AX Tel: 07881 577261 or K P Transport, 8 Greenwood Road, Bristol, BS4 2SX Call: 0117 977 8129.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Totterdown?

A.

With around 9,000 conservation areas throughout England, the areas located near Totterdown will include numerous areas of architectural merit registered as protected. Your solicitor will offer more information and discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

Should I use a solicitors firm named by my estate agent?

A.

Many agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. However, if they are paid a referral fee, it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

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

A.

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.
