Q.

I am trying to find discount conveyancing in Griffithstown. How do I get a quote?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees may inflate your final bill. Additional fees should be fair and reasonable. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

We are anxious about council tax rates on a residential mid-terrace house in Griffithstown, what are they?

A.

Customarily a conveyancing report on title should include the Torfaen council tax band. Correct charges for properties in Griffithstown are published at the Torfaen local authority website. Currently, 12/07/2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £805.36
  • Band B - £939.59
  • Band C - £1,073.81
  • Band D - £1,208.04
  • Band E - £1,476.49

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Might I end up paying any hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden extra costs.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a church rectory in the parish of Michaelston-y-Fedw. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Regardless of the Griffithstown parish you are buying in, the conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. In Griffithstown's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Does your company conduct auction conveyancing in Griffithstown?

A.

We are able to work with residential property auction procedures. Frequently more complicated to convey homes e. g. development propositions, are listed at auction which tend to require further exploration by the property lawyer Lawyers therefore strongly advise that buyers at auction choose an affordable solicitor prior to the property auction for an investigation.

Subsequently, immediately after the actual auction your Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor is focused on rapidly concluding the conveyancing within a as tight time frame as required .

Q.

We are buying a £793000 home in Griffithstown. How is stamp duty calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax depends on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £31720 on a £793000 house or flat.*

*Correct as of January 2013

Q.

How long will it take the property solicitor to conclude the conveyancing formalities on an apartment in a Thirties home in Griffithstown?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere from 1 month to three months, which can be hampered by a number of issues, like the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or the number of people in the chain.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Griffithstown a problem?

A.

Several contaminants can impact residential property in Griffithstown . Contaminants like other land contamination will be considered as part of the environmental searches.
