Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. Can you assist?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement.

Q.

What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Rhiwbina. Are they a problem?

A.

Land in Rhiwbina will be contaminated by several natural causes, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a plot of land is impacted by local contaminants including nearby waste management facilities.

Q.

We plan to complete on around 14th April. What should be assessed for stamp duty?

A.

The rate of stamp duty due will depend on the purchase price of the property. It is £11220 on a £374000 house in Rhiwbina.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Caerwent, near Rhiwbina?

A.

Your solicitor responsible for your move is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In Rhiwbina's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current

owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Caerwent, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without a solicitor in Rhiwbina appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a maisonette , but would it be really be practical ?

A.

Technically there is absolutely no reason why you should not do the bulk of the your own conveyancing yourself. The truth is however that a property lawyer juggles a large number of exercises e.g. interpreting replies to enquiries or apportioning ground rents which are more safely handled with appropriate a skilled professional.

Q.

Do you recommend that we get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a Rhiwbina apartment near church land.

A.

Owners of property in an area near an old church building may be required to cover the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Rhiwbina property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners.

Q.

How do we protect ourselves from gazumping?

A.

This is widespread across England and Wales and takes place when a seller agrees to the first buyer's offer and later refuses it. Instead, they then go for a higher offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. You should instruct a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

Can we verify that the property we are buying is in a designated conservation area?

A.

The areas located near Rhiwbina include a number of areas of historic or architectural significance designated as conservation areas. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities.
