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.

How do I find out if the Pontyclun conservation area is neglected?

A.

Conservation areas are specified by the local Rhondda Cynon Taf planning authority, who preside over conservation area concerns from including things like neglected buildings, extensions and paths. Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced records in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as the risk of a worsening of the condition of the area.

Q.

I plan to buy a restored chapel in the parish of Wenvoe. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a home where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

I am purchasing a £212000, what will be calculated for stamp duty rates?

A.

The Stamp Duty due is dependent on the value of the house. For a property estimated at £212000, stamp duty will be £2120.*

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.

We are buying on a Pontyclun former industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

With this region's industrial history in parts of Pontyclun, topsoil contamination is unavoidable. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as organohalides.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for houses in Pontyclun?
