Q.

There is a lot of free information about doing ones own conveyancing when buying a flat - Would it be an unrealistic idea to take care of DIY conveyancing on our own?

A.

If you are so inclined refer to the various books, you can conceivably do the majority of the legal process without engaging a qualified Grangetown conveyancer. Essentially DIY lawyers are taking risks without the appropriate insurance which practicing solicitors are required by the Law Society to carry.

Q.

Is it recommended that I get a chancel liability search? We are buying a house by a rectory built in the 17th Century in Grangetown.

A.

Where land in Grangetown was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of upkeep of nearby church property. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced.

Q.

Is a survey required when buying a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

It is advised that you arrange a RICS survey. There can be a range of issues that have a negative impact on a property, such as cracked roof tiles. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

When do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our sale?

Whether you are buying or selling in Grangetown, the sooner the better, as the legal work can begin very early in the process. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor to handle your Grangetown conveyancing early can reduce any chance of the transaction aborting.
