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.

I am purchasing a Pontyclun house with Topaz Finance, what do we need to be aware of?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers need to be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal, however, can act on behalf of all large mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Conservation areas classify streets and neighbourhoods recorded as being of architectural merit. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits will include preservation of an area's historic charm.
