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.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' refer to?

A.

In general, fixtures are fixed to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

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