Read all about the area ;

Gowerton's nearest train station is Gowerton at 1 mile and the nearest airport to Gowerton is Swansea Airport (3 miles).

Commuters are well catered for with Gowerton enjoying very convenient major road access nearby at about 3m of the M4 Junction 47 Westbound.

The closest hospital is Garngoch Swansea.

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.

We are purchasing a £121000, what will be calculated for stamp duty?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate you must pay will depend on several factors, most importantly the purchase price. It is £0 on a £121000 house or flat (source: www.hmrc.gov.uk, July 2012).

Q.

Can we find out whether the property we are buying is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as 19th century suburbs, will be designated as conservation areas. Your property solicitor will provide more details.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like free-standing kitchen appliances?

A.

In the main, there is no absolute definition of fixtures and fittings. Often, this issue is neglected, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.

Q.

Is your solicitor team set up to very fast completions on the conveyancing for property auction properties in Gowerton?

A.

Our team deal with auctions throughout the UK and commonly act for bidders at auction. We often advocate purchasers to appoint a lawyer well before the actual auction for a title report of the auction legal pack,

After the day of the auction your dedicated conveyancing lawyer is utterly prepared for completing all of the legal work within the limited time frame as usually required .

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.

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.

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.
