What are the best conveyancing rates for a £611,000 residence?


Several conveyancers offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs will be included in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Additional charges found in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. The quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


With a freehold house ready to buy, with no mortgage, how can we ensure a fast conveyancing transaction?


Many buyers will, correctly, argue that fast conveyancing is essential to is to use a proactive conveyancer. Beyond that, there are numerous things you can also do to accelerate the process. These include:

  • contacting your conveyancer regularly
  • promptly completing and return any forms
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements


Would it be shrewd to do the conveyancing myself ourselves.


There is no argument why a home seller shouldn't carry out the your own conveyancing without a proficient Tonteg conveyancer. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor handles a large number of skilled tasks such as approving completion statements and interpreting planning contraventions most of which require a

qualified solicitor. Even more importantly amateur lawyers do not have the appropriate indemnity cover that all legal firms need to be covered by.


We are concerned about the council tax charges on a Forties detached property in Tonteg, what are they?


Normally the title report should contain the Caerphilly council tax band. Up-to-date rates for residents of Tonteg are published on the Caerphilly local authority website. Currently, 08 December 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £733.65
  • Band B - £855.92
  • Band C - £978.20
  • Band D - £1,100.47
  • Band E - £1,345.02
  • Band F - £1,589.57
  • Band G - £1,834.12
  • Band H - £2,200.94


How much time may the legal work to buy a home require in Tonteg?


For most residential property, the amount of time needed to buy or sell a property will vary. This is influenced by numerous legal considerations such as if a property is leasehold or freehold. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas Homeward Legal aim to complete the process within six weeks.


Is preparation of title repair or a indemnity policy a fee or disbursement?


Comparing quotes can be difficult, considering differences in terminology. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.


Is it necessary to get a chancel search? We are buying close to a 1200s vicarage in Tonteg.


In Tonteg, some owners can be required to pay for upkeep of church property in the locality. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced.


We are intending to buy a property in Pentyrch. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?


A solicitor could advise a chancel search. In Tonteg's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
