Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We need to find low cost conveyancing.


This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions.


We are using a local lender in Pembrokeshire, and need to know which Fishguard lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Whose panels are you on?


Our solicitors have experience working with the vast majority of lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Fishguard, including Principality Building Society, 29 West St, Fishguard, SA65 9AL. The lawyer handling the work for your Fishguard purchase or sale will be able to provide more information.


Fishguard conveyancers apply for formal property if instructed to act for a buyer - what specific searches?


If purchasing and obtaining a mortgage, your lender insist that the following for properties in Fishguard: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and occasionally specific searches such as Cheshire Brine Search.


Should we plan ahead for gazumping?


This occurs when the first buyer's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the seller, choosing instead a second buyer's offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. You should instruct a law firm as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.


Is a PI contribution a disbursement or fee?


An ideal quote will clearly list all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.


Doing ones own conveyancing without using a lawyer in Fishguard is becoming possible as a buyer of a maisonette. However, would it really be an unrealistic idea ?


Theoretically speaking there are no arguments at all why a home buyer cant do the your own conveyancing on your own.

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a large number of roles from ranging from approving completion statements and communicating with managing agents which really need a skilled professional.

Nonetheless lawyers must carry applicable professional indemnity insurance to safeguard you from any oversights.


Fixtures and fittings refer to what exactly?


Usually, fixtures are fixed elements, such as kitchen units to walls, floors or ceilings, whereas fixtures are free-standing items, like curtain rails. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


What can a Fishguard property lawyer do if the property is situated in a registered conservation area and has unbecoming new windows installed?


Your conveyancing solicitor will always verify if your proposed purchase is affected by a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have necessary permission from the local council.
