How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Kidwelly?


Many online and high street firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed sellers and buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any additional costs listed in the solicitor's terms ought to be clearly defined. They only be applied if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


When in the process do we need to speak to a solicitor to handle our sale?


With few exceptions, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act on your Kidwelly sale or purchase can reduce any chance of your transaction aborting.


We plan to purchase a church rectory in the parish of Taliaris. Is a chancel search important?


Whether you are buying a home in Kidwelly or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Kidwelly, chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


What makes the conveyancing process to take such a long time?

Conveyancing could be subject to numerous interruptions or delays for a variety of reasons. The delays are beyond the solicitor's power. Homeward Legal understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and do our best to reduce the effect of these delays whenever possible by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.


We are worried about the council tax charges on a semi-detached house in Kidwelly, what are they?


Almost always the conveyancing report on title should contain the relevant Carmarthenshire council tax band. The latest tax charges for properties in Kidwelly are set out at the Carmarthenshire local authority site. As of 21/12/2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £810.59
  • Band B - £945.68
  • Band C - £1,080.78
  • Band D - £1,215.88
  • Band E - £1,486.08
  • Band F - £1,756.27
  • Band G - £2,026.47
  • Band H - £2,431.76


Is contaminated land in Kidwelly a concern for many residential properties?


A wide range of contaminants can affect property in Kidwelly, and an environmental search will confirm that a house can be impacted by local contaminants such as infilled land or shallow mining.


I am planning to buy in Kidwelly. Are there many conservation areas?


Conservation areas classify streets and neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. Living in a conservation area can mean preservation of an area's historic charm, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


We need to complete this home purchase as soon as possible, can we ensure a fast conveyancing transaction?


It is a truism that fast conveyancing is key is to use a proactive, diligent solicitor. You should consider:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?
