Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £222,000 property? I need to find fixed rate Killay conveyancing.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement that homeowners often do not check. Extras included in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the solicitor must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A conveyancing quote must also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which government authority is responsible for publishing the state of neglect Killay and Killay conservation areas?

A.

Conservation areas are created by the local Swansea planning authority, who preserve the state of the area including things like poorly maintained public spaces, extensions and the upkeep of public spaces. English Heritage have conducted a survey and created records in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas along with the trend of the area.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Killay?

A.

Killay is located in City and County of Swansea, Civic Centre, Oystermouth Road, Swansea, SA1 3SN, Tel: 01792 636000

Q.

We are buying a house in Llandough-juxta-Cowbridge. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Killay or elsewhere in the county, the property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a home where church councils have previously chosen not to do so.

Q.

Do you confirm taking steps to defer paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been several official schemes, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

We are interested in purchasing in Killay, and would like to find out whether there are any conservation areas.

A.

Areas considered to be of special architectural or historic interest, like model housing estates, may be registered as areas of conservation. A solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place for affected areas in Killay.

Q.

How early should I instruct a conveyancer?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the faster you instruct the better. Promptly instructing a solicitor could mitigate the chance of the transaction aborting.

Q.

Will I need a chancel search when we are purchasing on the same road as a 14th Century church in Killay?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your solicitor can provide more details.
