Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many law firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges will be included in the terms and conditions. Any additional costs should be reasonable.

Q.

What amount of time can conveyancing require? The property is also local.

A.

The length of time required to transfer a residence does vary. This is dependent on a broad set of concerns which can include whether a mortgage is involved. With our specialist solicitors, the matter is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

Would ordering a house survey be required when we are purchasing property?

A.

It is strongly recommended that all buyers in Pentre book a surveyor if buying in Pentre. A range issues can negatively affect a property. These include poor drainage and corrosion of pipework, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Please advise how to avoid paying for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty scheme should be treated with extreme caution, as such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC

may challenge a scheme up to six years later imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters. There have been certain government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

As a result of the major river flooding in Wales I am concerned that flood risk searches aren't exacting enough?

A.

Flood searches applied for by a Pentre solicitor will include the far more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

It may be prudent to converse with a local resident for additional extra insight or regional Rhondda Cynon Taff flood repair builder - e.g. Berry Alex, 6 Churchfield Row, Pentre, CF41 7PL Tel: 01443 437343.

Q.

My partner and I are buying in Pentre, and would like to check that there are any areas of conservation.

A.

Areas deemed to be of special architectural or historic interest, such as picturesque villages, will be designated as conservation areas. Your lawyer will provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Our estate agent has put forward the solicitor whom they usually use. Must I instruct them?

A.

Many agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors where they refer conveyancing clients to them. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We are going to buy in Pentre. Do we need 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are a typical collection of queries ordered on behalf of the purchaser, for example a search of the Index Map, and consider legal considerations.
