The legal team work with auctioneers throughout Ceredigion and do frequently do the legal work for sellers at auction.

Q.

I am planning on buying a investment property in a conservation area. How do I locate more data in regards to the state of repair of the area?

A.

Conservation areas in Aberystwyth are nominated by the local authority (Ceredigion) who administer conservation area concerns from street furniture to back illuminated signs.

English Heritage, a government body, have produced records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.

Q.

We are buying on a newly development brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

With the history of industry in parts of Aberystwyth, topsoil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including food-processing waste and groundwater contaminants like detergents.

Q.

We are anxious about the council tax amounts on a Forties converted property in Aberystwyth, what are they?

A.

Almost always the conveyancer's title report should contain the appropriate Ceredigion council tax band.

Council tax rates for homes in Aberystwyth are set out in detail at the Ceredigion local authority site. As of 21 February 2013 rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £779.51

Q.

Which factors are important to organise a fast exchange and completion?

A.

Finding a proactive property lawyer is the key to fast conveyancing. When identifying an appropriate a property lawyer, ask yourself the following: Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Was there a delay delivering a quote? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.

Q.

Do we need a property survey for our house purchase?

A.

It is advised that all purchasers book a home buyer survey. A wide range of defects have a negative impact on a property, which include ground movement, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue in Aberystwyth?

A.

Residential property in Aberystwyth can be contaminated by many environmental factors, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a specific property is affected by local contaminants such as potentially contaminative use of nearby land or local waste transfer sites.
