The closest airport to Whitland is Haverfordwest Airport Airport. Aberporth Airport is 21 mile away and Whitland's nearest station is Whitland.

Werndale is a relatively close hospital to Whitland.


On the purchase of a 574,000 residence, what will be the fees? I need low cost conveyancing in Whitland.


Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs will be included in the terms and conditions. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


In what ways can my Whitland conveyancer report on the risk and history of local flooding in Whitland?


An important step in the conveyancing process of buying a property involves your lawyer carrying out environmental searches that set out detail with regard to Whitland historical flood risk.


Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Llanboidy?


The property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have opted to charge chancel repairs on owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


When in the conveyancing process should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Whitland?


The short answer is, earlier is preferable, as conveyancing involves various tasks which may be performed very early in the process. Instructing a solicitor early for a purchase can mean that you will

the details of your Whitland solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.


We are buying in Whitland on a new development ex-industrial site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?


Steps are taken throughout the local area to resolve soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as landfill leachate, will be included in an environmental search.


The web is full of collections of guidebooks going into great depth on doing the legal work yourself for example A Practical Approach to Conveyancing by Robert Abbey and Mark Richards. Do I need to use a property solicitor in Whitland ?


Theoretically speaking there is no reason why you cannot engage in the bulk of the legal work unaided. However, a lawyer is familiar with a large array of exercises including chasing missing documents or notifying parties of completion which really need a qualified solicitor. In any event however, solicitors firms must be covered by suitable indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you from any failures on the part of the solicitor.


What can a Whitland property lawyer do when the house we are buying is within a conservation area and has unauthorised windows fitted?


Carmarthenshire council Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by your solicitor as part of the conveyancing should check whether the property is within a conservation area and evidence of planning authority consent for changes to the property will be asked for.


If I am buying a Whitland home on the same road as a 1500s vicarage, would you recommend that I get a chancel search?


Owners of property near to church property in the locality may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists.
