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.

Does Barry include any areas of conservation?

A.

These areas denote local areas designated as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. You may wish to contact the local authority if you have specific questions, but your conveyancing lawyer will address this during the conveyancing process.

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.

Which factors will contaminate land in Barry. Are these thoroughly investigated?

Residential property in Barry may be contaminated by numerous factors caused by man and by nature, such as sand or clay quarries or a proximate telecommunications base station. An environmental search can give more clarity. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Blue Circle Cement, Aberthaw Cement Works, Glamorgan, CF62 3ZR.

Q.

Please give reasons why Barry sale conveyancing takes such a long time?

A.

The conveyancing process may be exposed to significant delays. We strive to lessen the consequences of these delays by using fast search providers. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

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.

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.

We are completing in August. How is stamp duty tax calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax that will be due is calculated with reference to the purchase price. For a house or flat estimated at £807k, the SDLT rate is £32280 (information correct March 2013).
