Both high-street and online firms offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional costs will be included in small print. Costs should be clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.Q.
The short answer is, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. A number of sources recommend postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.Q.
The process can take anywhere between 3 weeks and twelve weeks, based on a number of factors such as the speed of the sellers solicitor, or whether there are any linked sales.Q.
Conveyancing will occasionally be held up. We do our best to minimise the consequences of these delays whenever we can by driving the transaction forward.Q.
In the main, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing. Early agreement of a list of fixtures and fittings will avoid later disputes, clarifying to both parties what items will stay, and which will be removed.Q.
Property may have been contaminated by several factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants including sand or gravel pits or masts or pylons will be considered as part of the environmental searches. Llangyfelach, Swansea, SA5 7LA is one such potential source of local contamination.Q.
A property solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish where the house being bought is found. In older areas of Fforestfach, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.Q.
Local authority LLC1 searches conducted by a solicitor during the conveyancing process should see whether the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of local authority approval for changes to the property will be required.
Should no local authority consents be available your Fforestfach conveyancing solicitor will recommend the best alternative which can include taking out an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective consent from Swansea local authority.
