Pertinent local travel and public service facts and figures -

Gowerton station is about 2 miles from Dunvant. Swansea Airport is 2 miles from Dunvant.

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.

What causes the conveyancing work to go on for so long?

A.

The Dunvant conveyancing process can be subject to numerous interruptions or delays for many reasons. In some cases, the delays are out of a solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal work hard to reduce their burden whenever it is feasible. Delays can include issues elsewhere in a chain.

Q.

What does a Dunvant conveyancing solicitor advise if the house is situated in a Swansea council conservation area and has inappropriate windows fitted to it?

A.

The local authority LLC1 searches carried out by a property lawyer during the legal process should check the existence of the appropriate authorisation for modifications to the building.

Q.

Would ordering a home buyers survey be advisable if we are buying a home in Dunvant?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly recommend that you arrange a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of concerns that can negatively affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, which include flat roof leaks.

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.

At what point is it appropriate to instruct a solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

In the majority of situations, earlier is preferable. A number of sources suggest holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

My agent has offered the solicitor whom they usually use. Should I use them?

A.

Your agent will usually endorse a conveyancing solicitor. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

What average time will it take my assigned conveyancer to handle the conveyancing formalities on a detached house?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere from one month to three months, contingent on a number of things, such as the efficiency of the sellers lawyer, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries.
