Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £289,000 property?

A.

This issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Any additional charges included in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable and only apply to matters if the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What can a Barry property lawyer recommend if the flat we are intending to buy is in a conservation area in Vale of Glamorgan local authority and has inappropriate doors fitted?

A.

Vale of Glamorgan local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by a solicitor during the conveyancing process should verify whether the property is within a designated conservation area and any evidence of permission for additions to the property will be required.

Q.

Flood risk searches may be fine but when one considers recent events such as the serious river flooding in Wales are they sufficient to verify enough about the changing Barry area flood risk?

The Barry conveyancing solicitor should also get environmental searches (Landmark search) if the standard searches establishes a significant risk Barry flood risk.

You can converse with a neighbour of the property for additional added confidence.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search if I am buying near parsonage grounds in Barry?

A.

In Barry, some owners can be required to contribute towards upkeep of church property in the locality. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out.

Q.

Do I need a survey?

A.

We heavily advise that purchasers in Barry book a RICS surveyor. Many issues have a negative impact on a property, for example corrosion of pipework and unsafe chimney circulation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

We are buying a Victorian terraced house, should we have property searches ordered?

A.

Searches are a standard set of queries requested by the buyer's property lawyer with a particular authority, and only relate to issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

What is the authority that has overall responsibility for overseeing the standard of neglect the conservation areas in Barry and Barry?

A.

Local conservation areas are designated by the local Vale of Glamorgan planning authority, who administer conservation area concerns from including things like street clutter, the colours of paint used and building materials used. Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled a list of the state of repair of conservation areas in Barry and throughout England.

Q.

I am worried about the council tax charges on a Sixties detached house in Barry, how much are they?
