Q.

What are our options if we buy a Westbury Park flat in a Bristol local authority conservation area ?

A.

Part of the legal due diligence when buying a property includes carrying out searches of Bristol planning authority to find out conservation area status and the requisite permission for changes. .

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction to buy a £ 928k property, how could we accelerate our transaction?

The key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to employing a experienced solicitor. When finding a solicitor, consider these points: Was there a delay delivering a quote? Do they use email? Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

When should we get a conveyancer?

A.

The short answer is, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better. The legal work can then begin straight away. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce the likelihood of the transaction falling through.

Q.

My lender is Aviva, is there anything I need to check?

A.

Buyers should be aware that a small number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for house purchasers. We are able to act for all major CML-approved lenders.

Q.

Which environmental factors can affect land in Westbury Park. Are these comprehensively investigated?

A.

A broad range of contaminants can spoil land, such as coal mining. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

Is it necessary to get a chancel search? We are buying a house in Westbury Park.

A.

Property owners in Westbury Park may be subject to chancel repair liability. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Westbury Park church lands include The Church in Methodist Church and The Church in St Alban's.

Q.

The purchase is completing next March. What should be worked out for stamp duty tax?

A.

The Stamp Duty due is calculated based on the valuation. On a £354000 home, stamp duty will be £10620.
