What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 745k property?


Several law firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional fees may inflate the solicitor's invoice. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


What does a Neath property solicitor do if the property we want to buy is located in a conservation area and has unsuitable window frames installed?


Your solicitor is required to see whether your new home is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the appropriate permissions.


Which Neath mortgage lender panels are your solicitors on?


Our solicitors have experience working with the vast majority of lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Neath, like Principality Building Society, 1-3 Green St, Neath, SA11 1DR. The solicitor handling your conveyancing transaction can provide more information.


It seems that zinc soil contamination may be an issue in Neath. Please advise.


Though the dangers are usually minor, an plot will be marked as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life is unacceptable. The local authority for Neath will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.


Should we get a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Neath, near Neath?


A property solicitor may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is located. In Neath's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a property where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


I am going to buy a property, is it that significant that searches are ordered?


Searches are a typical collection of enquiries requested by the conveyancer, for example a tin mining search. They are not carried out by a property surveyor.


What amount of time does the legal work to sell a house take, in your experience? We need to move quickly.


The amount of time needed to sell or purchase a property may vary, influenced by potentially many aspects. These may include cases where a property has a mortgage. With our specialist solicitors, your sale, purchase or remortgage is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.
