Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees are often hiding in the small print. Your Westbury On Trym conveyancing quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements). Any extra charges should be reasonable. They be applied only where the conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , 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.

How is contaminated land in Westbury On Trym identified during the house-buying process?

A.

We have a found a £506,000 home to buy. How do we get fast conveyancing?

Property conveyancing searches are standard procedure for home buyers but with climate change for instance the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they sufficient to report enough about the changing Westbury On Trym risk of flooding?

Q.

We plan to buy a restored chapel in Littledean. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

A solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. Chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
