We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. Can you assist?


Confusion over this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement.


In what ways can the conveyancing solicitor in Rhiwbina investigate the potential risk of local flooding at Rhiwbina?


A vital step in the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves your conveyancer applying for environmental searches that give specific information regarding Rhiwbina flood risk. In addition the Rhiwbina conveyancing solicitor may possibly propose a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed flood risk search.


Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Rhiwbina conveyancing faster?


Instructing a proactive, diligent lawyer is essential to a faster move. You should consider:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?


How early do I need to arrange a conveyancing solicitor in Rhiwbina?


If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, earlier is preferable. The legal work can then commence straight

away. Instructing a firm to handle your Rhiwbina conveyancing early for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Rhiwbina solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.


Doing your own conveyancing without a solicitor in Rhiwbina appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a maisonette , but would it be really be practical ?


Technically there is absolutely no reason why you should not do the bulk of the your own conveyancing yourself. The truth is however that a property lawyer juggles a large number of exercises e.g. interpreting replies to enquiries or apportioning ground rents which are more safely handled with appropriate a skilled professional.


Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Caerwent, near Rhiwbina?


Your solicitor responsible for your move is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In Rhiwbina's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Caerwent, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


We are anxious about the council tax charges on a Sixties end of terrace home in Rhiwbina, what are they?


Usually the report on title should cover the Cardiff council tax band. Correct rates for homes in Rhiwbina are tabled at the Cardiff local authority website. Currently on 06 March 2013 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £738.47
  • Band B - £861.55
  • Band C - £984.63
  • Band D - £1,107.71
  • Band E - £1,353.87
  • Band F - £1,600.03
  • Band G - £1,846.18
  • Band H - £2,215.42


How do we protect ourselves from gazumping?


This is widespread across England and Wales and takes place when a seller agrees to the first buyer's offer and later refuses it. Instead, they then go for a higher offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. You should instruct a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.
