Cardigan area info

The closest hospital is Cardigan & District Memorial.

Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Would you advise that we get a chancel search? I am buying a home in Cardigan.

A.

Chancel repair liability can require some Cardigan home owners to pay for upkeep of an old church building. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Cardigan Parochial Church Council enforce liability.

Q.

What will the searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal, you are required to pay at a maximum £249 for conveyancing searches. Other informative searches include a limestone search.

Q.

How long does it take my assigned property solicitor to complete the legal process for a maisonette in a building in Cardigan?

Completion can take anywhere from around a month to 12 weeks depending on various things, like the speed of the sellers lawyer, or whether there are any linked sales. Our property solicitors are exceptionally focused on speed and communication you moving home in as short a time as achievable.

Q.

Harpenden Building Society is going to be our lender, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers should be aware that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for purchasers. We, fortunately, will act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like carpets?

A.

Buyers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding what fixtures and fittings are included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

What does the Cardigan property lawyer do when the property is in a local authority conservation area and has out of place cladding fitted?

A.

Ceredigion planning authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by the solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should find out if the property is inside a conservation area and evidence of consent for additions to the property will be requested.

Q.

I am purchasing a sixties investment flat in a designated conservation area in Cardigan, how do we uncover data on the standard of repair of the conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Ceredigion) who preserve things like the historic layout of roads to the inhibition of ugly highway signs. English Heritage have conducted a survey and created records of the state of repair of conservation areas.
