How can the Burry Port conveyancing solicitor advise on the risk of flooding around Burry Port?
An essential component in the legal due diligence procedure involves your conveyancing lawyer conducting environmental searches that offer detail about the Burry Port historical flood risk.
Do I need a solicitor?
The quick and easy answer is that you don’t. There is no legal imperative for you to employ a solicitor to handle the conveyancing when dealing with property. However, it would be rather unwise for you to carry out the work yourself because you probably won’t have the skills, knowledge and experience to perform many of the complex tasks, and you won’t possess the indemnity insurance that all solicitors are obliged to carry to protect clients in the event that something goes wrong.
You need to appoint a solicitor who is experienced, proactive and focused so that you have the best chance of completing your transaction as early as possible. You should also look for such a solicitor who also offers ‘No Completion, No Fee’ protection so that you will only be invoiced for the fees once your transaction has completed successfully.

Can you suggest how we defer paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?
Stamp Duty Land Tax usually must be paid on property priced at over 125,000 pounds.

Do you advise that I get a chancel search when I am purchasing a Burry Port flat on the same street as a rectory built in the 12th Century?
Chancel repair can require some home owners to contribute towards maintenance of local churches. Several sources are used to determine liability in Burry Port, including parish records.
DIY conveyancing without the support of a Burry Port property lawyer looks to be possible as a buyer of a flat. However, would it really be viable ?
Hypothetically speaking there is absolutely no reason why a seller cant go down that route and engage in the legal work on your own. In reality however, a conveyancer in Burry Port typically handles a long list of functions including interpreting protocol forms or interpreting management accounts many of which need training.
How does a Help to Buy scheme work for me?
This government-sponsored scheme aims to assist homebuyers with three ways of purchasing a property:
- Help to Buy ISA - if you are a first-time buyer and don’t own any other property (anywhere in the world), and you don’t have another cash ISA opened in the same tax year, when you buy your first home, the solicitor will apply for the government bonus on your behalf when closure of your Home to Buy ISA used to buy the property is confirmed.
- Help to Buy: Equity Loan - if you have no other property and are buying a newly-built home, the government will provide 20% of the cost of the house (up to a maximum of £600,000), leaving you with the saved 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage to cover the remainder. This is open to current homeowners and first-time buyers, and the home cannot be sublet nor can it be used in a part-exchange deal.
- Help to Buy: Shared Ownership - if your household earns less than £80,000, you could be eligible for this scheme, which allows you to buy between 25% and 75% of the home’s value, while the government pays the remainder on which you would then pay rent.
