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.

What can a Fforestfach property lawyer recommend if the flat we am buying is inside the boundary of a Swansea local authority conservation area which appears to have unsympathetic windows fitted?

A.

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.
