How do I find a cheap solicitor in Saundersfoot to buy a home?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many home owners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed home owners ignore these terms at their peril. Costs which are listed in the small print ought to be fair and clearly defined. They be applied only where your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


For a lender, we have chosen Britannia, is there anything we need to consider?


When arranging a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Recently, a number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, however, can act on behalf of the majority of CML-approved lenders.


Please address how to avoid paying out for stamp duty in Saundersfoot?

Stamp duty avoidance must be treated with caution, as such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable.


What will a Saundersfoot property lawyer do if the property I hope to invest in is within a conservation area and has unsuitable PVC windows added?


The solicitor will ascertain if the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the necessary permissions from the local planning authority.


We are concerned about the council tax charges on a residential mid-terrace house in Saundersfoot, what are they?


Frequently a title report will cover the Pembrokeshire council tax band. The correct charges for residents of Saundersfoot are published online at the Pembrokeshire council website. On, 10 September 2012, the rates are:

  • Band A - £629.73
  • Band B - £734.69
  • Band C - £839.64

  • Band F - £1,364.42
  • Band G - £1,574.33
  • Band H - £1,889.20


Can we verify if the property we are buying is in a conservation area?


Areas deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as stretches of canals, will be designated as areas of conservation. Your solicitor will be able to advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Would you advise that we get a chancel search? I am purchasing in Saundersfoot.


The outcome of a landmark case in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Your conveyancing lawyer can provide more details.
