Q.

We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in small print. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry. Your Langstone conveyancing quote ought to list costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements). Any additional fees included in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair.

Q.

How early do you need to instruct a conveyancer?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as early as possible is better, as the legal work can start straight away. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase enables you will the details of your Langstone solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

As a result of the serious river flooding in Wales I am concerned that conveyancing and environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches handled by a Langstone property solicitor will also include a more rigorous Landmark flood search if required.

You can speak to a neighbour of the property for additional added local history if you are still worried.

Q.

We are using a local lender in Newport, and need to know which Langstone lenders you work with. Which panels are you on?

Which local authority is responsible for Langstone?

A.

Q.

What sort of scrutiny in respect to the risk and history of floods around Newport will a Langstone conveyancer report back to us on a seventies maisonette we are going to purchase?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches, which include Langstone historical flood risk data. In addition your Langstone property solicitor might possibly suggest a more involved (e.g. Landmark) involved flood search.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Wells has named a property lawyer. Will it be cheaper to use them?

A.

Many agents in Wells will have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like cobalt?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Langstone, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as household chemicals and acidic compounds, will be included in an environmental search.
