Q.

I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote. What do we need to check for?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges can increase your final bill. Any additional charges listed in the terms needs to be reasonable and be applicable solely where your lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Why could the conveyancing process take such a long time? Is it not simply form-filling?

A.

The conveyancing process may be delayed. Homeward Legal understand that these can cause considerable stress and do our best to lessen their consequences if it can be achieved by using fast search providers.

Q.

The Mortgage Business is going to be our lender, what will I need to know?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We will act for most UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

I have taken out a quote from you. Are there any extra costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any hidden fees. Know that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

We are buying in Fairwater, should we have 'conveyancing searches' undertaken?

A.

Searches are common collection of queries raised by the buyer's solicitor, and only deal with legal-related matters.

Q.

Which property should my Fairwater lawyer order for a Fairwater property?

A.

The regular conveyancing procedure will be to get the following Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches, which might include HS2 Search.

Q.

We are enquiring about council tax amounts on a Sixties converted property in Fairwater, what are they?

A.

Ordinarily, the report on title should give information the appropriate Cardiff council tax band. The correct rates for residents of Fairwater are set out on the Cardiff local authority website. As of 04 December 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £738.47
  • Band B - £861.55
  • Band C - £984.63
  • Band D - £1,107.71
  • Band E - £1,353.87
  • Band F - £1,600.03
  • Band G - £1,846.18
  • Band H - £2,215.42

Q.

Will the property's form for fixtures and fittings list things such as kitchen units?

A.

Purchasers will often be frustrated with the lack of formality over what fixtures and fittings should be 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.
