Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing?

A.

This issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are often hiding in the small print. Any disbursements should also be included on your conveyancing quote Any additional costs found in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair.

Q.

We are using a lender based in Swansea, and need to know which Gower lenders your lawyers work with. Whose panels are your solicitors on?

A.

We are able to work beside many lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Gower, including Davey Mike, 15 Staines Rd West, Sunbury-On-Thames, TW16 7AB, Mortgage & Protection Advice Centre, 154B Station Rd, Addlestone, KT15 2BD, and Intelligent Financial Services Ltd, 28 Glebeland Gdns, Shepperton, TW17 9DH. The solicitor managing the legal work for your move can state specific lenders' requirements.

Q.

What average time does it take my designated solicitor to accomplish all of the legal formalities on the lower floor of home we want to buy?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from one month to 3 months, contingent on any number of factors like the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of the local authority.

Q.

What issues help with arranging a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that contacting a proactive solicitor is essential to fast conveyancing. There are several tasks you, as the buyer, could do. These include:

  • contacting your solicitor regularly
  • answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing a flat close to a church constructed in the 1700s in Gower.

A.

Property owners near to an old church building must contribute towards repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. A solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

Is gazumping common practice in Gower?

A.

The practice of rejecting a previously accepted offer on a property when a better offer is made by a second buyer is called gazumping. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can.

Q.

Which local factors can contaminate land in Gower. Will they be properly investigated?

A.

A range of contaminants can ruin property in Gower. Contaminants including radioactive substances in the region will be considered as part of the environmental searches.

Q.

We are moving in Gower, and have a quote from you. Will we be invoiced any supplementary hidden charges?

A.
