Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing, however extra fees can pad the final invoice. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Are the many designated conservation areas in Cilfynydd likely to affect us?

A.

Conservation areas classify areas of historic or architectural significance. The local council will provide more details about local areas of conservation, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Do I need to get a house surveyor to check for issues affecting the property purchase in Cilfynydd?

A.

It is highly recommended that home buyers arrange a surveyor. Numerous problems have a negative impact on a property. These can include cracks around door frames or chimney defects, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Is it recommended to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying near a 16th Century rectory in Cilfynydd.

A.

In Cilfynydd, some owners can be required to fund upkeep of older church buildings. Terms used in a property's name, like 'rectory', may indicate chancel liability. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability.

Q.

Our lender is Principality Building Society, what will we need to check?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean higher legal costs for purchasers. We will act for all large mortgage lenders.

Q.

At what point should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks which may be carried out straight away. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase enables you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.

Q.

Would it be a good idea to carry out the DIY conveyancing myself.

A.

On paper there are no reasons why you should not carry out the greater majority of the legal work unaided. However, a conveyancing solicitor in Cilfynydd is in charge of a large array of tasks e.g. chasing retention releases or checking for any restrictive covenants many of which need adequate training.

Q.

We are concerned about council tax rates on a residential end of terrace property in Cilfynydd, what are they?

A.

Ordinarily, the report on title will include the relevant Caerphilly council tax band.
