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.

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

A.

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.

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.

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.

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

A.

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.

Q.

How soon is it appropriate to instruct a solicitor in Porthmadog?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Prompt instruction of a firm to act for you on your Porthmadog transaction could mitigate the chance of your sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

Which property conveyancing searches does the Porthmadog conveyancer get for a Porthmadog house?

A.

Normal conveyancing protocol will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental and Coal Mining (Con29M) and occasionally less common searches, like a Planning Search.

Q.

Will a Porthmadog conveyancing solicitor report back on the risk of floods in Porthmadog?

A.

A key component in the conveyancing protocol carried out when buying a property involves a lawyer conducting conveyancing and environmental searches that provide information about the potential the local Porthmadog flood risk. A more thorough flood search, such as the Homecheck search, may possibly be advised by a qualified property lawyer in Porthmadog if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches show a risk of flooding.
