Regional travel and health information and addresses ;

Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a 599,000 house?

A.

Various conveyancers purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra charges will be included in the small print. The disbursements to be paid should be included on the quote

Q.

What kind of investigation concerning the potential risk of floods at Pembrokeshire will a property solicitor in Milford Haven report back to us on an investment property we are going to purchase?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will conduct standard formal environmental searches that will include Milford Haven historical flood risk data. As an additional measure means that the Milford Haven lawyer will sometimes propose a significantly more involved flood risk search.

Q.

Property environmental searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but considering recent events for instance the flooding in 2012 are they comfort enough to identify enough about the ever changing Milford Haven area flood risk?

Flood searches carried out by your Milford Haven lawyer should also include the more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

You can also contact a local resident for some added confidence.

Q.

Could we be gazumped?

A.

This is widespread across England and Wales and describes when a seller acknowledges an offer, only to refuse it in favour of a second buyer's offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. Instructing a proactive solicitor early should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

We are buying in Milford Haven, and need to know if there are any designated conservation areas.

A.

These areas denote local areas designated as being of historical merit. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your conveyancing solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Extensive measures are taken in the areas around Milford Haven to clean up topsoil contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Milford Haven, including local authorities.

Q.

Will I need to get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a maisonette close to parish land in Milford Haven.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Milford Haven property likely to be affected. Terms used in a property's name, like 'Glebe Farm', may indicate chancel liability. Your solicitor can provide more details.

Q.

Do we need a property survey?

A.

Homeward Legal heavily advise that home buyers book a surveyor. It is a fact that there are many defects that can negatively affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as severe weathering and wet rot.
