Q.

We are looking for a cheap solicitor to own property. and what is included?

A.

Many buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Your conveyancing quote should also state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursments).Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

How will my Bridgend lawyer report back on the risk and history of floods in Bridgend for a Regency maisonette I am buying?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor conducts environmental searches that will include Bridgend area flood risk data. A more thorough flood risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) could be recommended by the Bridgend lawyer if the results of the initial searches highlight a flood risk.

Q.

Will a local Bridgend property lawyer carry out official or personal searches on my home purchase?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will make a recommendation as to the most appropriate type of search, depending on factors like local authority turnaround times. If personal searches are used a solicitor will try to find a local search company like Homeinfo UK Ltd t/a Search Direct South Wales, GWS Legal Services & BIRR Legal Services, ConveyIT House, 28 Coity Road, Bridgend, CF31 1LR Tel: 01656 651234 Fax: 01656 664010

Q.

For a fast exchange and completion on the purchase of a £326,000 property, what should we guarantee to accelerate the transaction?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to instruct a communicative property lawyer. When choosing a property lawyer, consider these questions: Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact

Q.

Would getting a property survey be required if we are buying residential property?

A.

Homeward Legal advise that you book a property surveyor to perform a survey. A range defects will impact a property. These can include wet rot or cracks in walls, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

How long on average does it take the lawyer to carry out all of the conveyancing work for a detached building?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and three months, which can depend on any number of factors, for example the speed of the seller's conveyancer, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries. Our lawyers are very results-focused with a view to you moving home as promptly as achievable.

Q.

Can Bridgend ex-industrial site soil still be contaminated?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Bridgend, but where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination.

Q.

I am buying a sixties house in one of the Bridgend conservation area. How does one get more data in relation to the standard of upkeep?

A.

Conservation areas are created by the local Bridgend planning authority, who regulate things like paths and footpaths to the halting of street clutter.

English Heritage, a government body, keep a list of the state of repair of conservation areas.
