Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor in Pontyclun for purchasing a residence?

A.

Lack of clarity over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs will be included in small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional costs included in the solicitor's terms should be fair and reasonable and only apply in cases where your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on a conveyancing quote

Q.

The local agent has suggested a solicitor which they often use. Will it be easier to instruct them?

A.

The agent will often endorse a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

It is not always clear whether an item on your quote is a fee or a disbursement. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like a washing machine?

A.

In general, there is not a strict definition of fixtures and fittings. This is an issue which is regularly not considered, making early agreement of the list of items included with the purchase so essential.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for houses in Pontyclun?

A.

Land would be contaminated by a wide range of human activities, and an environmental search should reveal if a plot of land could be affected by contaminants in Pontyclun including sand or clay quarries or other land contamination.

Q.

Should we get a house survey?

A.

It is advised that purchasers in Pontyclun book a surveyor if purchasing in Pontyclun. Numerous issues have a negative impact on a property. These can include chimney defects.

Q.

When is it appropriate to find a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

Simply, the faster you instruct the better. The legal work can then begin straight away. Promptly instructing a conveyancing solicitor for your Pontyclun transaction for a purchase allows you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

What can a Pontyclun property solicitor advise if the house I am planning to buy is situated in a Rhondda Cynon Taf conservation area and turns out to have unbecoming satellite dishes fitted to it?

A.

Rhondda Cynon Taf council LLC1 searches conducted by your solicitor should determine whether the property is inside a designated conservation area and any evidence of permission for modifications will be requested.

In the event that no necessary permissions be available your conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the options e.g. buying an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective permission from the planning authority.
