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.

How do you calculate stamp duty and how much do we need to budget for a £531000 house?

A.

The SDLT that will be due will depend on the value of the house or flat. For a house or flat estimated at £531000, stamp duty is £21240.*

*This information accurate as of May 2012

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.

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 buying on a brownfield site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like beryllium (Be)?

A.

Regulations have been passed to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Metal contamination of top-soil in Cilfynydd is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like organic compounds, will also be included in an environmental search.

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.

Where can I find out additional information on the upkeep of conservation areas in Cilfynydd?

A.

English Heritage have conducted a survey and created records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Cilfynydd including the upkeep of public spaces or neon signs are administered by Caerphilly.

Q.

How long should I expect it to take our assigned property lawyer to handle the conveyancing work on a maisonette in a building we are buying?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between a month and three months dependent on any number of factors, for example the efficiency of the sellers solicitor, or the time taken to issue draft contracts. Our chosen lawyers are extremely focused on communication completing as soon as possible.
