What are the best conveyancing rates for a 100,000 house?


This topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors offer cheap conveyancing. Often extra charges can pad the final bill. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


What are 'fixtures and fittings'?


Mainly, there is not a clear definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.


Our agent has named the conveyancing solicitor that they have used before. Will it be cheaper to use them?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will often suggest a law firm to handle your conveyancing. These referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.


What can we do to defer paying SDLT rates?

We do not recommend home buyers get involved with any stamp duty avoidance, as such schemes are highly expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.


Is a property survey sensible when buying a house or flat, regardless of its age?


It is advised that home buyers in Porthmadog arrange a building survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of problems which have a negative impact on a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, which include poor ventilation and cracked roof tiles.


What do we need to calculate Stamp Duty Land Tax rates in Porthmadog and how much should we pay on a £1010000 house?


The Stamp Duty that will be due is based on the value of the home. Stamp duty will be £50500 on a £1010000 house.


Do you recommend your solicitors to handle the conveyancing for auction properties in Porthmadog?


Our residential property lawyers frequently carry out work for buyers and sellers at auction. Conveyancers consistently suggest bidders to appoint a SRA regulated conveyancing company well before the actual auction to allow enough time for a review.

After the property auction date, a lawyer should be fully prepared to get through the legal process within 28 days after exchange as required by the auction conditions.


We are buying in Porthmadog on a newly development former industrial site. Is lead (Pb) soil contamination likely?


Steps are taken in all parts of Porthmadog and the UK to rectify soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include chlorinated solvents and water contaminants such as household chemicals.
