Q.

We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote in Hengoed. What do I need to check for?

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges can inflate your final bill. A quote ought to define any disbursements.

Q.

We are buying on a Hengoed brownfield site. It seems vanadium soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

There are comprehensive regulations to curtail top-soil contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contaminants like silage and organohalides, contaminants affecting Hengoed property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

What factors are key to ensure a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Crucial to fast Hengoed conveyancing is to use a proactive conveyancer. There are, in addition, several tasks you, as the purchaser, can also do, such as, pushing the conveyancer to begin enquiries as soon as possible, responding to your conveyancer by phone, fax or email wherever possible and arranging your mortgage offer.

Q.

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

What factors can contaminate land in Hengoed. Are these comprehensively investigated?

Q.

Do we need a chancel search? We are purchasing a Hengoed property by church grounds.

A.

Property owners in Hengoed may be subject to chancel repair liability. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Hengoed must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.
