Q.

I need low cost conveyancing in Roath Park. What are the risks?

A.

This affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many solicitors advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are frequently hidden in small print that home owners often do not check. Extra fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. They only come into force where the solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should be included on your quote

Q.

As a consequence of the serious river flooding in Wales we are anxious that conveyancing searches aren't exacting enough?

A.

A qualified Roath Park conveyancing solicitor will advise you to apply for specialist environmental searches if the environmental searches flag up any kind of risk.

You may be able to speak to a future neighbour for additional further comfort if still concerned.

Q.

We are buying a home with Lloyds TSB - is there anything we need to check?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, the lender will require legal work to be carried out. In some cases, lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal can act for many lenders, ensuring that an additional property lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

Which body has overall responsibility for logging the state of repair of the conservation areas in Roath Park?

A.

Conservation areas are designated by the local Cardiff planning authority, who maintain conservation area concerns from including things like rundown streets, addition of unsympathetic windows and what can be developed. English Heritage, a government body, administer details of the condition of conservation areas in Roath Park and across England as well as the risk of the area falling into disrepair.

Q.

The property in Roath Park being bought is on a ex-industrial site. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

There are regulations imposed to limit topsoil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as fertilisers, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Why can the sale conveyancing process require months? Isn't it just filing paperwork?

A.

Roath Park conveyancing could be exposed to significant delays for a variety of reasons. Some causes are out of your solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal see how frustrating such delays may be and aim to curtail the cost of these delays whenever possible by pushing all parties involved. Reasons for delay include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

When do we need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Roath Park?

A.

The short answer is, instructing as early as possible is better. The legal work can then commence straight away. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor early for a sale means that documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Roath Park solicitor ready when you make an offer.
