Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Various solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear. They come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What specific search enquiries does a property solicitor in Llandaff do for a Llandaff property?

A.

The conventional conveyancing procedure will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental and occasionally special local Llandaff searches, which might include Subsidence.

Q.

Is a house survey required if we are purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly recommend that you arrange a survey. There are a wide range of defects which can affect a property. These can include cavity wall tie failure or rotten roof timbers, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Will I need a chancel search? We are purchasing a flat close to a 12th Century church in Llandaff.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

How does Llandaff property legal work for a sale be so drawn out?

Q.

We are going to buy a renovated maisonette within a Llandaff conservation area. Where can I uncover more information relating to the standard of upkeep?

Q.

Following recent news about the extensive river flooding in Wales, I am questioning if conveyancing and environmental searches won't be thorough enough?
