Q.

I am looking for a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a freehold property. Can you assist?

A.

Various property lawyers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Extras included in terms and conditions ought to be fair and be applicable solely where the lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Beaumaris has put forward the conveyancing solicitor which they often use. Will it be easier to use them?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will suggest a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

I am worried about the council tax charges on a Forties detached home in Marshfield, what are they?

A.

Ordinarily, the conveyancing report on title should provide the relevant Cardiff council tax band.

Correct charges for residents of Marshfield are set out in detail at the Cardiff local authority site. At the time of writing on 12 August 2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £738.47
  • Band B - £861.55
  • Band C - £984.63
  • Band D - £1,107.71
  • Band E - £1,353.87
  • Band F - £1,600.03
  • Band G - £1,846.18
  • Band H - £2,215.42

Q.

Is a deed of variation paid to the solicitor?

A.

Some solicitors attempt to pass off extra costs as necessary disbursements. It is not always clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and whether it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

How is SDLT worked out and what amount should we budget for a £1030000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty depends on the value of the property. On a £1030000 property in Marshfield, stamp duty will be £51500.

Q.

How much time may conveyancing to transfer a home require, in your opinion? I am buying in Marshfield.

A.

The length of time required to transact residential property does vary. This is based on a handful of issues affecting the property. These may include if the lender requires specific searches. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, whereas our solicitors work for a deadline of six weeks.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Are there any hidden charges?

A.

No. Our solicitors never charge any additional charges. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

At what point should we instruct a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase means that you will the details of your Marshfield solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.
