Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

In 1 month we are hoping to move from our detached home in Porthmadog to our new property in Llwyngwril at what point to instruct a house removal firm?

A.

We would tend to advocate that you put off organising removals until exchange of contracts because it is likely that a home moving date wont have been set. Try G & T UK, Morfa Bychan, Porthmadog, LL49 9YB Telephone: 01766 512692.

Q.

We are intending to buy a converted building in a designated Porthmadog conservation area. How does one find more data concerning the state of repair of the Porthmadog conservation area?

A.

Local Porthmadog conservation areas are set up by the local Gwynedd planning authority, who preside over conservation area concerns from trees to the obstruction of neglected buildings. English Heritage now maintain details on the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the risk of getting worse.

Q.

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

A.

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

Q.

Is contaminated land in Porthmadog a problem for the majority of properties?

A.

Property could be contaminated by many natural causes, like civil aviation activity in the area. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

What length of time may the conveyancing process take? We are buying in Porthmadog.

A.

The number of weeks needed to buy or sell a house varies, influenced by potentially many issues which may affect the property, for example, if you plan to take out a mortgage. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, we however aim to complete the process within six weeks.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

How do we avoid being gazumped?

A.

This occurs when a seller accepts one buyer's offer and then dismisses it, selecting instead another buyer's offer. This could occur weeks into a sale. The danger of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.
