The closest hospital is Singleton Swansea.

Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in Langland to purchase a home?

A.

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees will be included in small print. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How much can the charges for searches total?

A.

Searches range in cost. Searches are charged at cost.

Q.

What will the Langland conveyancing solicitor recommend if the property I hope to buy is in a Swansea council conservation area and turns out to have unsanctioned windows installed?

A.

The local authority searches conducted by your solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will find out the existence of suitable consent for any additions to the property.

Q.

I am worried about council tax rates on a Fifties converted dwelling in Langland, what are they?

In most cases a report on title should contain the relevant Swansea council tax band. Correct rates for residents of Langland are set out online at the Swansea local authority site. At the time of writing on 17 June 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £780.04
  • Band B - £910.05
  • Band C - £1,040.05
  • Band D - £1,170.06
  • Band E - £1,430.07
  • Band F - £1,690.09
  • Band G - £1,950.10
  • Band H - £2,340.12

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Miskin has put forward the conveyancing. Should I instruct them?

A.

The Miskin agent will push a law firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should I instruct a solicitor?

A.

The straightforward answer is, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can commence straight away. A number of sources advocate postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

Would you confirm taking precautions to defer paying out for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

Are there any areas of conservation in Langland?

A.

Areas considered to be of historical or architectural value, like historic transport links, may be designated as conservation areas. A conveyancing lawyer will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area and offer more information.
