Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing in Lisvane?

A.

Several firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs can increase the solicitor's invoice. Additional fees found in the terms should be clearly defined. They be applied only where the solicitor is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a chapel in the parish of Llangyfelach. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move might recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Is Lisvane soil likely to be contaminated by tungsten?

A.

Most soils in Lisvane have some degree of contamination, from industrial or agricultural. Also considering issues

such as perchlorate and groundwater contaminants like household chemicals, contaminants affecting Lisvane property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Would arranging a Homebuyer Report be required when buying property?

A.

It is strongly suggested that most Lisvane buyers order a building survey. Many problems affect a property, for example poor drainage, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Which zones of Lisvane are protected by a designated conservation area?

A.

There are numerous conservation areas around Lisvane. These restrictions can make repairs more costly or time-consuming, but the benefits will include preservation of an area's historic charm. Your lawyer will be able to offer more information.

Q.

How much would fee for our searches come to?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, a purchase conveyancing client expected to pay no more than £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Searches are disbursements.

Q.

We are worried about council tax charges on a Fifties converted building in Lisvane, what are they?
