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.

We are buying on a brownfield land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Considerable measures are taken in all parts of Barry and the UK to identify top-soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include chlorine and water contaminants such as hydrocarbons.

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.

Can you address how to avoid paying for stamp duty in Barry?

A.

SDLT commonly must be paid for houses sold for over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward

Legal firmly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme, because these schemes are costly and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

We have taken out a conveyancing quote from you. Could there be any additional fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden costs for any reason. Know that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be bound to.

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.

We are expecting to be moving out of our terraced building on the outskirts of Barry into our new home in Llantwit Major , at what stage to book a house removal firm?

A.

Most property lawyers tend to advocate that sellers wait arranging removals until after exchange of contracts as in advance of this in all probability an actual moving date will not have accepted by both parties. Usually removals companies might charge a cancellation cost . There are many local and national companies including Bennetts Removals & Storage, 26 High St, Barry, CF62 7EB Phone: 07968 539383 or Mr Move It, 44 Andover Close, Barry, CF62 8AG Tel: 01446 404192.

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.
