Q.

My mortgage lender is Precise Mortgages, is there anything I need to check?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal will act for most lenders.

Q.

As a result of the serious river flooding in Wales I am wondering if flood searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Your Caldicot property solicitor will advise you to also get conveyancing and environmental searches if the standard searches determine a any kind of risk of flooding in Caldicot.

It may be sensible to also converse with a local resident for further insight.

Q.

How many weeks does it take for the property solicitor to get through the legal formalities on a detached Regency property?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months based on various things e.g. the speed of the vendor's property lawyer, or the speed of your lender. Our property lawyers are focused on speed and communication you moving home in as short a time as we can.

Q.

My partner and I are interested in purchasing a building in Caldicot. How do I confirm that the building is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of special architectural or historic interest, such as fishing villages, will be defined as areas of conservation. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A solicitor will address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

Would getting a house survey be necessary if we are buying property in Caldicot?

A.

It is firmly advised that you book a building survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of problems which can negatively affect a property, which include dry rot.

Q.

I plan to purchase a church rectory in the parish of Marshfield. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a home where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed ex-industrial use land. Is the top-soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Most soils in Caldicot have some degree of contamination, from industry, agriculture and the natural environment . Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including food-processing waste.
