We need to find an affordable conveyancing estimate. and what is included?


The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the small print which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Any additional charges listed in the small print should be fair and clearly defined. They only apply in cases where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


Is a PI contribution a disbursement or fee?


Unscrupulous firms attempt to pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It may not be clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it ought to be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.


The estate agent has suggested a conveyancing solicitor that they have used before. Should we instruct them?

Many agents in Broadstone have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.


Which local authority looks after Carmarthen?


Carmarthen is located in Carmarthenshire County Council, County Hall, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire, SA31 1JP, Call: 01267 234 567


If land is found to be contaminated, can we have the soil cost-effectively remedied?


Remediation is often feasible. Contact a local specialist e.g. Kendrick, Pwllymarch, Llangain, Carmarthen, SA33 5AS for additional information.


What can I do to bypass paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable on home purchases over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed.


How is stamp duty calculated, what should we budget for a £826000 home?


Stamp Duty is based on a limited set of factors, including the property's value. It is £33040 on a £826000 Carmarthen property (correct March 2013).


What does a Carmarthen property lawyer do when the property I hope to invest in is in a local authority conservation area and has an un-consented stone cladding added?


Your instructed conveyancing solicitor to identify whether the property is inside a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the appropriate permission from the Carmarthenshire planning authority. In the absence of any consents, your conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the options, which include getting from Carmarthenshire planning authority or buying an indemnity insurance policy.
