Living in the Hengoed area? ;

The nearest station to Hengoed is Hengoed and Hengoed's closest airport is Cardiff Airport.

Ystrad Mynach is a nearby hospital.

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

A.

Usually the report on title will provide the relevant Caerphilly council tax band. Up-to-date rates for residents of Hengoed are tabled on the Caerphilly local authority website. On (10 September 2012) band rates are:

  • Band A - £733.65
  • Band B - £855.92
  • Band C - £978.20
  • Band D - £1,100.47
  • Band E - £1,345.02
  • Band F - £1,589.57
  • Band G - £1,834.12
  • Band H - £2,200.94

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Hengoed?

A.

Whichever Hengoed parish in which you are buying, a conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Is a mining search paid to the conveyancer?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always straightforward, considering differences in terminology. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

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.

If I buy a book about conveyancing when selling a home - Might it be prudent to carry out the legals on our own?

A.

Technically, there is no reason why a home mover cant take care of he legal process yourself. That said, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a huge array of tasks e.g. interpreting replies to enquiries or representing the lender most of which are more safely handled with appropriate experience.

Additionaly solicitors are bound to have suitable professional indemnity insurance in order to protect you in the event of failures.

Q.

We are buying in Hengoed. Can we find out whether the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', such as model housing estates, will be designated as conservation areas. Your solicitor will offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

What causes the purchase conveyancing process in Hengoed to take such a long time?

A.

The Hengoed conveyancing process could be delayed, Homeward Legal, however, seek to diminish the cost of these delays wherever a difference can be made by pushing all parties involved.
