Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a 466,000 house? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote in Rumney.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are often hiding in small print. The conveyancing quote ought to define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursements). Any costs should be fair and clearly defined. They only be applied if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Are many Rumney conservation areas likely to impact the property we are buying?

A.

These distinguish areas of architectural or historic interest. The council will be able to advise further about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing lawyer handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

I am purchasing a period flat in a designated conservation areas. Where can I find data about the state of upkeep of the Rumney conservation area?

A.

Local Rumney conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Cardiff) who administer conservation area concerns from public spaces to the stoppage of ugly highway signs.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled a list in relation to the condition of conservation areas in addition to the exposure to a decline in standards.

Q.

Regarding the widespread river flooding in Wales I am thinking that conveyancing and environmental searches may not be sufficient?

Environmental searches handled by a solicitor in Rumney should include the more specialist search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

You can also contact a close neighbour for further comfort.

Q.

Unfortunate financial circumstances dictate that we would prefer to complete on the sale of our maisonette very quickly, do you any particularly fast Rumney solicitors ?

A.

Generally Rumney solicitors can be far too slow which creates huge amounts of stress to the house moving process. We always work with lawyers who will always attempt to efficiently communicate through the whole of the buyer and seller chain . Moreover our lawyers are specifically chosen as they use leading edge online systems to drive through the property sale with minimal stress.
