Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing freehold property?

A.

Both high-street and online firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra charges will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Any charges included in terms of engagement needs to be clearly defined and only come into force where the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

We are buying at auction and need organise a fast purchase, what should we organise to speed up our transaction?

A.

Key to buying faster is to use a experienced property lawyer. When selecting a property lawyer, ask yourself the following: Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

Do we need a house survey?

A.

It is suggested that all buyers book a surveyor. A wide range of defects affect a property, including cavity wall tie failure or ground movement.

Q.

Conveyancing and environmental searches are ascertained from past data and when you consider recent events such as the extensive river flooding

Q.

in Wales are they comfort enough to investigate enough about the ever changing risk of flooding in Cardiff Bay?

A.

Property conveyancing searches applied for by a conveyancing solicitor in Cardiff Bay will also include the more rigorous flood search if required.

You could always converse with a future neighbour for added confidence if you are still worried.

Q.

Could the charges for our conveyancing take into account any additional charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any hidden extra charges for any reason. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

How soon do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Cardiff Bay?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the faster you instruct the better, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Some sources advocate postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

We are concerned about the council tax amounts on a Sixties end of terrace house in Cardiff Bay, how much are they?

A.

Typically the conveyancer's title report should contain the Cardiff council tax band.

Council tax charges for residents of Cardiff Bay are tabled on the Cardiff council site. Currently (03 September 2012) the different rates are:

  • Band A - £738.47
  • Band B - £861.55

  • Band D - £1,107.71
  • Band E - £1,353.87
  • Band F - £1,600.03
  • Band G - £1,846.18
  • Band H - £2,215.42

Q.

Are any conservation areas in Cardiff Bay likely to affect us?

A.

Areas considered to be of historical or architectural value, like 19th century suburbs, may be registered as areas of conservation. Your solicitor will offer more information and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.
