We are planning to acquire a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Sea Mills who is on the Bank of Ireland solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Bank of Ireland . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Sea Mills.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Sea Mills and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Sea Mills. We have lived in Sea Mills for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Sea Mills?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Sea Mills. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Sea Mills I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Sea Mills suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
What does commercial conveyancing in Sea Mills cover?

For instance, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the assignment of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements.
