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.

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.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like bathroom suites?

A.

House purchasers are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding what fixtures and fittings will be included in a sale. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Our estate agent has referred a conveyancing solicitor who they generally use. Is it advisable to use this firm?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common way to find a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen the Royal Bank of Scotland - what do I need to check?

A.

Your mortgage lender will require legal work to be performed on their behalf. Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. We will act for all large lenders.

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.

Which local authority looks after Milford Haven?

A.

Milford Haven is located in Pembrokeshire County Council, County Hall, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, SA61 1TP, Call: 01437 764 551

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.
