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.

I am on a very limited budget. Can doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the assistance of a Barry conveyancing solicitor save any cash?

A.

There are no reasons why you cant go down that route and conceivably complete the bulk of the conveyancing without an expert conveyancing solicitor in Barry. In reality however, a Barry conveyancer carries out a significant number of jobs including understanding the practical side of the process and investigating title documents which require training. Even

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.

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?

A.
