Q.

How many weeks should I expect it to take my designated conveyancer to carry out the legal process for a semi detached fifties building we are buying?

It can take anywhere from around a month and three months based on any number of things, like the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.

Our chosen conveyancing solicitors are focused on speed and communication and endeavour towards completing the legal process as promptly as achievable.

Q.

How might purchase conveyancing work seem to be so slow?

The conveyancing process could take more time than initially expected, Homeward Legal, however, appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and strive to minimise their cost wherever a difference can be made by using fast search providers. Common delays may include problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

What will the Birchgrove conveyancing solicitor recommend if the house we want to buy is located in a Neath Port Talbot planning authority conservation area and has unapproved artificial stone cladding installed?

A.

The local authority searches conducted by the solicitor will establish the existence of suitable consent for any additions to the property.

In the absence of any appropriate consents the solicitor will inform you of all options, which include getting from the council or getting covered by an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

How do we protect against being gazumped?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a house seller accepts an offer, then dismisses it, choosing instead another buyer's offer. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

We are purchasing a rectory in the parish of Neath with Llantwit-juxta-Neath. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A.

The property solicitor might recommend a chancel search. In Birchgrove's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a home where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
