Regional travel and health information

The Vale is the most convenient hospital for Miskin.

Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing in Miskin?

A.

Numerous solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing. However extra fees may increase the final bill. Additional fees listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair. They be applied only where your solicitor must perform additional tasks , 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.

Is it recommended to bypass paying for HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation scheme should be treated with extreme caution. Such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty tax may be payable.

Q.

Would you recommend that I get a chancel liability search if I am buying near a 1500s 'parson's close' in Miskin?

A.

Where land in Miskin was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of repairs to nearby church land. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Miskin Parochial Church Council enforce liability.

Q.

Derbyshire Building Society is going to be our lender, what will we need to know?

A.

House buyers should know that some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. We, however, are able to act for all large CML-approved lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

We are anxious about the council tax charges on a period terraced dwelling in Miskin, what are they?

A.

More often than not a conveyancing report on title should provide the relevant Cardiff council tax band. Up-to-date charges for residents of Miskin are tabled online at the Cardiff local authority website. On, 09 July 2012, 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.

How much can my conveyancing searches usually cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches can vary noticeably, subject to the searches your lender requires. Informative but less frequently ordered extra searches include a brine search.

Q.

How do we calculate SDLT, and how much do we need to budget for a £141000 residential property?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the purchase price. For a house or flat in Miskin estimated at £141000, stamp duty is £1410.

Q.

In relation to the flooding in 2012 I am questioning if flood searches aren't sufficient?

A.

A diligent lawyer in Miskin will apply for property conveyancing searches if the environmental search establishes a Miskin flood risk.
