Q.

We are trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Barmouth. What are the risks?

A.

Many buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. The quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursements). Costslisted in the small print needs to be fair and be applied only where the lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing a property in Barmouth.

A.

In Barmouth, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for repairs to specific local church buildings. Some names or words such as 'rectory' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply.

Q.

I am completing next June. What should be calculated for stamp duty tax?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate that will be due will depend on several factors, primarily the house or flat's purchase price. On a £795000 property, stamp duty will be £31800.

Q.

Would arranging a house survey be a good idea when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?

We suggest that home buyers order a building survey if you are planning to buy in Barmouth. A range concerns affect a property. These can include settlement and rotten roof timbers. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

To complete on our property purchase ASAP, can we guarantee fast conveyancing?

A.

Key to faster conveyancing is to instruct a experienced conveyancing solicitor. There are a number of things you can do to speed up the process. These include:

  • arranging any finances require to complete the purchase
  • calling or emailing your conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • promptly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions (by email if possible)

Q.

I am purchasing a barn conversion in the parish of Barmouth. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.

Q.

In regards to the major river flooding in Wales, I am asking whether property environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

A Barmouth conveyancer will include flood searches from Landmark if the first conveyancing searches identifies a Barmouth flood risk.

Perhaps you could speak to a local resident for additional further assurance.
