Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £669,000 residence? I am trying to find a discount conveyancing estimate in Mountain Ash.


Both high-street and online property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Any additional charges which are listed in the small print needs to be reasonable and clear. They come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


If I am purchasing on the same street as church land in Mountain Ash, will I need to get a search for chancel liability?


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Mountain Ash which was once owned by a 'lay impropriators' can be liable for maintenance of a church in the area. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Mountain Ash must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.


How is Mountain Ash contaminated land checked during the conveyancing process?


A wide range of contaminants can impair land, like landfill sites and shallow mining. An environmental search will give more detail.


How do you determine stamp duty?


Stamp Duty is dependent on a small range of considerations, primarily the value of the property. It is £56950 on a £1139000 property.*

Do your solicitors specialise the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Mountain Ash?


Our property solicitors commonly do the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. We often advocate auction buyers to appoint an experienced conveyancing lawyer before the property auction date for a full investigation.

Following the date of the auction, the lawyer must be able to concentrate on complete the auction conveyancing process in less than 28 days after exchange of contracts, a normal requirement of terms and conditions of sale.


The home being purchased is on a ex-industrial site. It seems that arsenic (As) top-soil contamination may be an issue.


Most soils in Mountain Ash have some degree of contamination, from agriculture or industry. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including chlorine.


I have requested a quote from you. May we end up paying any extra charges?


We do not charge any additional costs. Your quote is an honest and accurate fee.


Will we need a house surveyor to inspect this Mountain Ash property purchase?


We advise that Mountain Ash buyers order a RICS survey when you plan to buy in Mountain Ash. A range defects have a negative impact on a property. These can include corrosion of pipework.
