Q.

We are looking for a cheap Birchgrove solicitor for selling a home. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Numerous property lawyers promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees will be included in the terms. The quote should also state any disbursements to be paid.Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

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.

Myself and my partner are buying in Birchgrove. How can we verify that the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', such as picturesque villages, will be designated as conservation areas. Your property solicitor will be able to offer more information and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

Regarding the flooding in 2012 I am wondering if conveyancing searches (environmental) might not be exacting enough?

A.

A diligent solicitor in Birchgrove should also get environmental searches if the standard search spots a Birchgrove flooding risk.

Why not contact a neighbour of the property to get further local information.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Birchgrove?

A.

Birchgrove is located in Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, Port Talbot Civic Centre, Port Talbot, SA13 1PJ, Tel: 01639 686868

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.

Which of the Birchgrove lender panels are you a member of?

A.

We work beside many lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Birchgrove, including Mortgage Centre, 25 Millwood Gdns, Killay, Swansea, SA2 7BE, Jones Bathan, 7a John St, Llanelli, SA15 1UH, and Williams Steve Practice, Axis 7/Axis Court/Mallard Way/Riverside Business Pk, Swansea Vale, Swansea, SA7 0AJ.

Q.

When do you need to get a solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, instructing as soon as possible is wise. The legal work can then begin immediately. Instructing a firm early for a sale enables relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.
