Pertinent local travel and public service facts and figures -

The nearest hospital is Fairwood Swansea.

Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates for a 437,000 house?

A.

Several firms offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited home owners, eager to get underway. Any extra costs should be clearly defined. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

In what ways does the conveyancer in Dunvant report on the risk of floods in Dunvant?

A.

An essential component in the legal due diligence procedure involves a lawyer making an application for environmental searches that give specific information on the subject of the local Dunvant flood risk. A substantially more thorough conveyancing search, such as the Landmark search, may be recommended by a Dunvant conveyancer if in the event that the initial searches highlight a potential flood risk to the property. At the time of writing (22/02/13) reports on the Environment Agency flood reports website do not show any active flood warnings in the Dunvant area.

Q.

Does your solicitors company carry out the conveyancing of auction properties in Dunvant?

A.

Our firm is used to working with residential property auction conveyancing. Quite often difficult to value homes for example Sold with defective legal titles, are included in auctions which tend to need supplementary due diligence by the property lawyer Solicitors therefore strongly encourage that auction buyers instruct the lawyer well in advance of the date of the auction so there is time for a thorough investigation of the legal papers.

Following the auction day arrives your chosen lawyer is utterly ready for finishing the legal work in 28 days as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

Q.

I am worried about the council tax amounts on a Sixties semi-detached property in Dunvant, how much are they?

A.

Commonly, the title report will cover the relevant Swansea council tax band. Correct charges for homes in Dunvant are set out on the Swansea council site. At the time of writing (29 August 2012) the different rates are:

Q.

Is a mining search paid to the solicitor?

A.

Comparing quotes can be difficult, considering differences in terminology. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

How is stamp duty tax calculated, what should it be on a £195000 house?
