We need to find discount conveyancing in Swansea. Can you assist?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees can increase the final invoice. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on a Swansea conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


My wife and I are purchasing a building in Swansea. How can we check if the building is in a conservation area?


Locales deemed to be of historical merit, such as historic transport links, will be recognised as conservation areas. The council will be able to offer more information about local conservation areas, and the property solicitor handling your purchase will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.


Doing your own conveyancing without using a Swansea solicitor is becoming possible when buying and selling a flat. However, would it actually be wise ?


Should you desire t have a stab you can certainly take care of he conveyancing without the help of Swansea conveyancing solicitor .

In reality however, a property solicitor takes care of a long list of assignments ranging from interpreting protocol forms or handling retentions many of which need a skilled professional.

Fundamentally DIY conveyancers do not have the applicable cover which practicing legal practices need to obtain.


Property environmental searches are standard procedure but in light of recent weather changes such as the extensive river flooding in Wales are they the best way to ascertain sufficient information about the ever changing Swansea flood risk?


Flood searches conducted by a conveyancing solicitor in Swansea will also include the far more detailed search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain concerned you could try to contact a neighbour or local resident or local Wales flood damage builder, for example: Marv's Painting Services, 86 Phoebe Rd, Pentrechwyth, Swansea, SA1 7FF Tel: 07500 848257.


How does the lawyer in Swansea report back on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Swansea region for a residential home I am going to buy?


Your conveyancer makes an application for environmental searches that will include Swansea flood risk area data information.


I would like to know which Swansea lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Which panels are you on?


Homeward Legal can work with all the major lenders assisting Swansea home purchasers. Swansea lenders and mortgage specialists include Monmouthshire, 18 Union St, Swansea, SA1 3EH, Principality Building Society, Principality House/64-65 The Kingsway, Swansea, SA1 5HW, and Santander, 15 Union St, Swansea, SA1 3EQ.


How is contaminated land in Swansea investigated when buying a house?


A broad range of contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities can spoil land, such as pollution incidents. An environmental search will give more detail.


We are buying on a ex-industrial use land. Is the soil likely to be contaminated by waste minerals like manganese?


Most soils in Swansea have some degree of contamination, from industrial or agricultural. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination and acidic compounds.
