Q.

Grangetown points of interest

A.

Oriel Washington Gallery Penarth Art Gallery and Cardiff Castle Cadw are situated in Grangetown.

The most convenient hospital to Grangetown is Cardiff Bay Clinic.

Q.

I need a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Grangetown. How do I get a quote?

A.

Numerous firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the small print that home owners often do not check. Extra charges which are listed in terms and conditions should be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

How much will conveyancing searches be?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches will vary, subject to the searches your lender requires. Searches are charged at cost.

Q.

What does the Grangetown conveyancing solicitor recommend if the property is located in a conservation area in Cardiff planning authority that has unsanctioned satellite dishes installed?

A.

Cardiff council searches conducted by the solicitor during the conveyancing process will ascertain if the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of authorisation for changes to the property will be supplied.

In the event that no appropriate permissions be in evidence your Grangetown conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on all options

e.g. purchasing an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective approval from the planning authority.

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.

How long will it take for the conveyancing solicitor to get through the conveyancing work on a detached Edwardian house in Grangetown?

A.

The process can take anywhere from around a month and 3 months depending on various factors such as the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of managing agents.

Q.

How common is gazumping?

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. There is almost always a danger of being gazumped. Instructing a property solicitor as soon as you can should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

The estate agent has named the law firm. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct them?

A.

Agent recommendations are a not uncommon path for purchasers to get a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

In what ways can a Grangetown property solicitor advise me on the potential risk of possible flooding in Grangetown for a buy to let home we are buying?

A.

An experienced residential property conveyancing solicitor conducts environmental searches that will include Grangetown area flood risk information.
