What are the best conveyancing rates for a £289,000 property?


This issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Any additional charges included in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable and only apply to matters if the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


I am worried about the council tax charges on a Sixties detached house in Barry, how much are they?

Flood risk searches may be fine but when one considers recent events such as the serious river flooding in Wales are they sufficient to verify enough about the changing Barry area flood risk?


The Barry conveyancing solicitor should also get environmental searches (Landmark search) if the standard searches establishes a significant risk Barry flood risk.

You can converse with a neighbour of the property for additional added confidence.


What is the authority that has overall responsibility for overseeing the standard of neglect the conservation areas in Barry and Barry?


Local conservation areas are designated by the local Vale of Glamorgan planning authority, who administer conservation area concerns from including things like street clutter, the colours of paint used and building materials used. Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled a list of the state of repair of conservation areas in Barry and throughout England.


What will our conveyancing searches be?


With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, clients are expected to pay at most £249 for searches. These searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are charged at cost.


Do I need a survey?


We heavily advise that purchasers in Barry book a RICS surveyor. Many issues have a negative impact on a property, for example corrosion of pipework and unsafe chimney circulation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.


We are buying on a brownfield land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Considerable measures are taken in all parts of Barry and the UK to identify top-soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include chlorine and water contaminants such as hydrocarbons.
