The closest station to Warminster is Warminster, about a mile away. Bristol Airport is 26 miles from Warminster.

Q.

Local points of interest in Warminster

A.

Old Dilton St Mary Churches Conservation Trust and Sutton Veny St Leonard Old Church Churches Conservation Trust are situated in Warminster.

Warminster is the nearest hospital for Warminster.

Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Many online and high street law firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms.

Q.

If we are intending to purchase in the parish of Wilsford cum Lake, will we need a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish where the home being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What does a Warminster property solicitor do when the house is in a local authority conservation area and has unapproved doors installed?

A.

A property lawyer is required to confirm whether your proposed purchase is within a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have the essential permission from the Wiltshire planning authority.

Q.

Which elements help with organising fast conveyancing?

The key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to employing a experienced solicitor. You should consider:

  • Do they use email?
  • Do they use email?
  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?

Q.

I am planning to buy in Warminster, and would like to find out whether there are any conservation areas.

A.

Parts of Warminster considered be of 'special architectural and historic interest', like 18th century suburbs, may be defined as areas of conservation. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information and discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

When we are buying a property close by a 1600s priory in Warminster, is it important that I get a chancel liability search?

A.

In Warminster, some owners can be required to subsidise maintenance of an old church building. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Warminster churches include Boreham St John the Evangelist, Christ Church and The Minster Church of St Denys.

Q.

Could our offer be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where a seller approves the first purchaser's offer, then dismisses it, choosing instead a second buyer's offer. Gazumping may happen even months into a purchase. The will be a risk of getting gazumped in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. Instructing an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

What sort of environmental conveyancing searches concerning the risk and history of floods in the Wiltshire area will a Warminster property lawyer apply for?

A.

A qualified lawyer applies for property environmental searches that should include Warminster area flood risk information. Furthermore the Warminster solicitor will often advise an specialist Warminster area flood search.
