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.

Which specific conveyancing searches will my solicitor in Bridgend apply for when buying a Bridgend house?

A.

The common procedure will be to get Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental and perhaps specific searches, like a British Waterways Search.

Q.

Please advise how to bypass paying out for SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend conveyancing clients get involved with any form of stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed. There have been several legal initiatives, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your 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.

  • Bridgend intersects with the following local authorities: Bridgend County Borough Council, Civic Offices, Angel Street, Bridgend, CF31 4WB, phone: 01656 643 643

Q.

In about four weeks we are hoping to be finally moving from our detached home in Bridgend into a building in Blaenau Gwent , what is the right point to instruct a house removal firm?

A.

Most property lawyers usually encourage sellers hold off booking a removals company until the point where exchange of contracts because the firm moving date will not have been scheduled. Some residential removals firms might charge a re booking payment .

Q.

At what point is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer in Bridgend?

A.

The short answer is, instructing as early as possible is better, as there are several tasks which may be performed straight away. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm to act on your Bridgend sale or purchase can reduce any chance of the transaction aborting.
