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.

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.

Should we instruct the firm of solicitors used by my estate agent in Nantyglo?

A.

If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you the agent is able to use their influence exert pressure on your behalf. Such referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

There is a lot of online help on doing ones own conveyancing when selling a maisonette. Would it be sensible to do the all of the legal work myself?

There are no reasons why you cannot decide to undertake the bulk of the legal work without the help of a professional Roath Park property lawyer. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a large array of tasks including chasing lender for comments on issues raised or the Land Registry formalities most of which require a skilled professional. Fundamentally DIY conveyancers take huge risks in operating without suitable insurance which qualified legal firms are bound to be in possession of.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Roath Park?

A.

Roath Park is located in Cardiff Council, County Hall, Atlantic Wharf, Cardiff, CF10 4UW, phone: 029 2087 208

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.

Do many conservation areas in Roath Park have the potential to impact the building we are buying?

A.

There are several conservation areas in or near Roath Park. The advantages of these restrictions will include protection for trees and other flora, but they can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. Your conveyancing solicitor will provide more details.

Q.

We are concerned about council tax rates on a Thirties mid-terrace house in Roath Park, what are they?

A.
