Unfortunate personal circumstances mean we want to get a move on and complete on the conveyancing on a flat inside a month, do you any extra fast Llanfairpwllgwyngyll conveyancers ?
We believe that our conveyancing lawyers adopt a speed focused method when concluding the conveyancing for sellers
Our carefully selected solicitors approach to conveyancing is to employ speed focused IT and CMS systems . More importantly we give you a firm trained to communicate from the beginning to the end of the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) .
Can you confirm how to get out of paying out for stamp duty tax?
Stamp duty mitigation is not recommended for purchases in Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, as such schemes are often uneconomical and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.
Do we need to opt for the firm of solicitors referred by our estate agent?
It is common practice for estate agents to endorse a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.
Doing ones own conveyancing by bypassing a Llanfairpwllgwyngyll conveyancer looks to be possible as a buyer of a maisonette. Would it really be an unrealistic idea ?
Legally speaking there are absolutely no arguments at all why you cant opt to take care of he legal process unaided. However, a solicitor in Llanfairpwllgwyngyll is familiar with a huge array of exercises such as chasing notices/share certificates or apportioning service charges some of which need adequate training.
I’ve lost my gas/electrical certificates; will that stop me moving?
There is no legal imperative for you to provide either the gas or electrical safety certificates as the seller; you are required to provide a gas safety certificate on an annual basis, however, if you are planning on letting the property out. The Institution of Electrical Engineers recommends that an electrical certificate be updated at least every ten years or when the property is transferred to a new owner (every 5 years if you are letting the property out).
However, this usually means that this is the responsibility of the buyer with the onus on organising an inspection for a new certificate falling on them.

What can be done about trees with TPOs if they are cutting out the light into the house?
Tree Preservation Orders (or TPOs) are legal protections for individual trees, which means you are prohibited from pruning, cutting or removing the plant without the formal consent of the local authority. There are certain caveats such as whether it is causing an immediate danger to life, but the local authority will still need to be informed.
As a homeowner, you have a number of rights, including Right to Light: that is, you should expect natural daylight to enter your property through windows without being blocked (again there may be caveats which will be unearthed in the conveyancing). If a tree with a TPO has grown so much that it is blocking out light, you can apply to the local authority for permission to prune the tree sufficiently to return your Right to Light. It becomes more complex if the tree in question is on a neighbour’s property, and you should discuss any resulting costs with them.
Homeward Legal's solicitors have years of experience in dealing with all sorts of legal issues including TPOs, providing you with practical guidance and help. We are best placed to help you with your move, so call our team on 0800 038 6699 today.
