Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing quote. What should I check?

A.

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.

We have a property to purchase. How do we organise a fast completion?

A.

Essential to a fast completion is to use a proactive, diligent property lawyer. There are a number of tasks you, as the buyer, can do, including, promptly answering your property lawyer's questions, arranging your mortgage offer and calling or emailing your property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays.

Q.

When getting a mortgage a mortgage lender insist that at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search as well as any less common searches e.g. a Utilities Search.

Q.

In a few months we are looking to be moving out of our terraced property in Fforestfach to a new home in Clydach , at what point to choose a home removal company?

Q.

Natwest is our mortgage lender, what will we need to know?

A.

Buyers should know that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of many mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Should we plan ahead for gazumping?

A.

Gazumping happens when a seller accepts an offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a better offer. This could occur weeks into a sale. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of gazumping. Instructing a property solicitor as soon as you can is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

We are purchasing a medieval barn conversion in Newcastle with Bettws. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

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.

Is a survey necessary when we are buying property?

A.

It is strongly suggested that property purchasers book a property surveyor to carry out a survey when you plan to buy in Fforestfach. A range problems have a negative impact on a property. These include roof damage. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
