Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

This issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra charges may be added into the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Any extra fees ought to be fair. The quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursments).Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Does the HS2 route affect homes in South Bucks District?

A.

Yes, HS2 will likely affect numerous property in Stoke Poges. Many property owners may have to endure months or years of construction work along the planned route. An HS2 search can give more detail.

Q.

Which factors can contaminate land in Aberporth, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

Property is contaminated by a broad range of factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants like environmental radon sources or proximity to waste sites should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

Should I opt for the property solicitor used by our agent?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to suggest a solicitor, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We are concerned about the council tax amounts on a semi-detached property in Aberporth, how much are they?

A.

Ordinarily, a conveyancing report on title should contain the appropriate Ceredigion council tax band. The latest council tax rates for homes in Aberporth are published on the Ceredigion local authority site. At the time of authoring, 03 February 2013, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £779.51
  • Band B - £909.43
  • Band C - £1,039.35
  • Band D - £1,169.27
  • Band E - £1,429.11
  • Band F - £1,688.95
  • Band G - £1,948.78
  • Band H - £2,338.54

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Llanbadarn Trefeglwys, near Aberporth?

A.

The Aberporth conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In Aberporth's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Llanbadarn Trefeglwys, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing a building in Aberporth. Can we find out if the building is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas protect local areas of architectural merit. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to offer more information and discuss what specific restrictions are in place, regarding specific conservation areas in Aberporth.

Q.

Which government authority keeps records for policing the state of repair of the conservation areas in Aberporth?

A.

Local Aberporth conservation areas are nominated by the local Ceredigion planning authority, who maintain conservation area concerns from including things like ugly parking meters, extensions and paths. Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain records of the state of repair of conservation areas.
