Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Kidwelly?

A.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed sellers and buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any additional costs listed in the solicitor's terms ought to be clearly defined. They only be applied if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

I am planning to buy in Kidwelly. Are there many conservation areas?

A.

Conservation areas classify streets and neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. Living in a conservation area can mean preservation of an area's historic charm, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

A.

Q.

Should the form for fixtures and fittings list items like kitchen units?

A.

In the main, fixtures are fixed to walls, floors or ceilings securely and fixtures can be more easily removed. The need to clarify this is regularly not considered, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.

Q.

If I am buying a property close to church grounds in Kidwelly, is it necessary to get a chancel liability search?

A.

The outcome of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply.
