Q.

A.

The closest hospital for Tenby is Tenby Cottage.

Q.

We need to find a low cost conveyancing quote. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied home owners Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do I need a home surveyor to inspect our Tenby property purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly recommend that purchasers in Tenby arrange a house survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which will impact a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, which include settlement.

Q.

What steps can we take to avoid paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty must be paid on houses valued at over £125,000. Stamp duty scheme should not be considered when purchasing in Tenby. Such schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

If we are purchasing near parish grounds in Tenby, do you need to get a chancel liability search?

A.

Chancel repair liability can require home owners to contribute towards maintenance of older church buildings. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.

Q.

We plan to buy a barn conversion in St Edrin's. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

A.

Your conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. In Tenby's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What will impact land in Tenby, and are they checked for thoroughly?

A.

Property can be contaminated by a broad range of natural and human-influenced issues, and an environmental search should reveal whether a house is impacted by Tenby contaminants like other sources of contaminated land or shallow mining.

Q.

Tenby conveyancers order some searches if acting for a property buyer, what particular searches?

A.

If buying and getting a mortgage lender expects at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental as well as any specific searches for example Bankruptcy Search (K16).

Q.

I've had a quote from you. Will there be any hidden fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not charge any extra, hidden costs for conveyancing in Tenby. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which could be totally different to your final invoice.
