Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We need to find low cost conveyancing.

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions.

Q.

Our estate agent in Wincanton has put forward a lawyer which they often use. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct this firm?

A.

Many agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. These referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may decide to recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Fishguard?

A.

Fishguard is located in Pembrokeshire County Council, County Hall, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, SA61 1TP, phone: 01437 764 551

Q.

I am worried about council tax charges on a Fifties semi-detached house in Fishguard, how much are they?

A.

Usually the conveyancer's title report will contain the relevant Pembrokeshire council tax band. Correct charges for homes in Fishguard are set out in detail at the Pembrokeshire council site. At the time of authoring (06 August 2012) rates are:

  • Band A - £629.73
    >
  • Band B - £734.69
  • Band C - £839.64
  • Band D - £944.60
  • Band E - £1,154.51
  • Band F - £1,364.42
  • Band G - £1,574.33
  • Band H - £1,889.20

Q.

How long should I expect it to take our assigned property solicitor to carry out the conveyancing formalities on a terraced home we hope to buy?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between around a month and 3 months dependent on various things e.g. the efficiency of the sellers lawyer, or the time taken to get a mortgage offer.

Q.

Natwest will be our mortgage lender - is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal can act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

How soon should you instruct a solicitor?

A.

With few exceptions, the earlier, the better. Promptly instructing a firm for your Fishguard transaction for a sale allows prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

We are using a local lender in Pembrokeshire, and need to know which Fishguard lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Whose panels are you on?

A.

Our solicitors have experience working with the vast majority of lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Fishguard, including Principality Building Society, 29 West St, Fishguard, SA65 9AL. The lawyer handling the work for your Fishguard purchase or sale will be able to provide more information.
