We are intending to purchase a home in the parish of Brechfa. Do we need a chancel search?


A conveyancer could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the property being bought is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


We are concerned about council tax rates on a period semi-detached property in Ferryside, what are they?

I am purchasing in Ferryside, do we need 'conveyancing searches'?


These searches are standard enquiries ordered by the buyer's conveyancing lawyer. You should be aware that, these searches only deal with issues with the property's title.


Are costs for obtaining copies of planning permission fees or disbursements?


A good quote should clearly state all fees and disbursements. These costs are fees not disbursements. It should be included in your quote.


Are there many buyers in Ferryside gazumped?


This describes when one buyer's offer is accepted but then rejected by the seller, selecting instead a greater offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. You should instruct a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.


Conveyancing searches are standard procedure for home buyers but considering recent climactic events e g the extensive river flooding in Wales are they comfort enough to determine sufficient information about the Ferryside flood risk area?
