As someone not used to the Bradley Stoke conveyancing process what is your top tip you can give me concerning the legal transfer of property in Bradley Stoke

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Bradley Stoke or throughout Bristol is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for conflict between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the vendor, property agent and sometimes your mortgage company. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Bradley Stoke should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the transaction whose responsibility is to act in your legal interests and to keep you safe.

Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will try and convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your solicitor is slow. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do something that is contrary to your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

My wife and I have a renovated Edwardian house in Bradley Stoke. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Barclays Direct. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Bradley Stoke and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Bradley Stoke I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Bradley Stoke in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

In searching the internet for the phrase cheap conveyancing in Bradley Stoke it shows results of numerous property lawyerslocally. How do I determine which is the right solicitor for purchase transaction?

The best way of seeking the right conveyancer is via personal recommendation, so enquire of colleagues and family who have bought a property in Bradley Stoke or a reputable estate agent or financial adviser. Costs for conveyancing in Bradley Stoke vary, so it's advisable to request a minimum of four estimates from varying types of law firms. Dont forget to clarify that the costs are assured not to escalate.

When it comes to my conveyancing in Bradley Stoke should I be charged VAT on the following: (1) Land reg fee on purchase (2) Pre - completion search fee (3) SDLT E submission on purchase (4) Bank TT fee

(1) Land reg fee on purchase - No (2) Pre - completion search fees -No, (such conveyancing searches are HMLR ones and means £4 and possibly £2 bankruptcy per name on your mortgage) (3) SDLT E submission on your purchase - There is no VAT on Stamp Duty. However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some Bradley Stoke conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the property lawyer's time in submitting the funds this way.
