Q.

I need to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Gowerton. What should we check?

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on the quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £911,000 property, what should we do?

A.

Experienced buyers will tell you that faster conveyancing is the key to is to employing a proactive and experienced conveyancer. There are a range of tasks you could do, such as, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means, requesting status updates from the conveyancer regularly and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.

Q.

The residence being purchased is on a brownfield land. Apparently barium soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Gowerton's local area has a history of contamination from industry and natural causes, like much of the UK. Metal contamination of topsoil in Gowerton is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like perchlorate, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What can a Gowerton conveyancing solicitor recommend if the property I hope to purchase is in a Swansea council conservation area and turns out to have unsympathetic windows installed?

A.

Local authority enquiries conducted by your solicitor during the legal process should ascertain if the property is within a designated conservation area proof of Coal Authority consent for changes to the property will be requested.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Lavernock, near Gowerton?

A.

A property solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is located. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a property where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Which environmental factors can contaminate land in Gowerton. Are they a problem?

A.

Land in Gowerton may be contaminated by a wide range of factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search will confirm that a plot of land is affected by local contaminants including overhead transmission lines or limestone or gypsum quarrying.

Q.

We are enquiring about council tax amounts on a residential terraced home in Gowerton, how much are they?

A.

Almost always the conveyancer's title report will contain the Swansea council tax band. The latest council tax rates for properties in Gowerton are published online at the Swansea council site. On, 08 June 2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £780.04
  • Band B - £910.05
  • Band C - £1,040.05
  • Band D - £1,170.06
  • Band E - £1,430.07
  • Band F - £1,690.09
  • Band G - £1,950.10
  • Band H - £2,340.12

Q.

The agent has suggested a solicitor . Is it a good idea to instruct this solicitor?

A.

It is common for estate agents to refer a conveyancer. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.
