We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote in Hengoed. What do I need to check for?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges can inflate your final bill. A quote ought to define any disbursements.

What property does my lawyer in Hengoed do when buying a Hengoed flat?


The common procedure is to get these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps unique particular such as Commons Search.


What can a Hengoed property lawyer recommend if the home I hope to buy is located in a Caerphilly conservation area and has ugly doors fitted to it?


Local authority LLC1 searches conducted by your solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will see whether the property is within a designated conservation area and any evidence of consent for modifications will be required.


Bradford and Bingley will be our lender - what will I need to be aware of?


Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act for all large lenders, ensuring that an additional preferred solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.


What sort of local checks as respects the potential risk of flooding to properties in Caerphilly will my Hengoed solicitor be able to carry out?


A qualified residential property conveyancing lawyer will conduct property environmental searches that will include Hengoed flood risk area data.


Do we need a chancel search? We are purchasing a Hengoed property by church grounds.


Property owners in Hengoed may be subject to chancel repair liability. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Hengoed must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.
