Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs may pad your final bill. The conveyancing quote should state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

We are buying on a Winterbourne ex-industrial site. Is the top-soil likely to be contaminated?

A.

Legislation exists to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination and industrial storage.

Q.

How can we protect ourselves from being gazumped?

A.

This occurs when one buyer's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the seller and then selecting a second buyer's offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. You should instruct a proactive solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

Do you work with many lenders with Winterbourne offices?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership work with all the major lenders financing Winterbourne home purchasers. Winterbourne lenders and mortgage specialists include Omnis

Financial Solutions, 15 Sedgefield Gdns, Bristol, BS16 6SU, Mears Steve, 28 Alma Vale Rd, Bristol, BS8 2HY, and Mortgage Market, Unit 8 The Mall, Willow Brook Centre/Bradley St, Bristol, BS32 8BS.

Q.

I am buying a converted chapel in Leonard Stanley. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Winterbourne or elsewhere in the county, the property solicitor could advise that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a property 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.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for any homes in Winterbourne?

A.

Several contaminants may ruin property in Winterbourne. Contaminants like proximity to landfill sites will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

If you are purchasing a apartment close by a priory built in the 1200s in Winterbourne, is it advisable to get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Where land in Winterbourne was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise maintenance of nearby church land. Parochial Church Councils in Winterbourne must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Winterbourne churches where a chancel search may be necessary include Chapel of St. James the Less, St Martin and St Michael the Archangel.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Some firms hide fees which should be included as disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it ought to be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the solicitor passes on the charge at cost.
