Q.

How do I get the cheapest Tintern conveyancing quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any additional charges should be fair. A quote should also state applicable disbursements.

Q.

Would getting a Homebuyer Report be necessary when buying any property?

A.

It is strongly advised that most Tintern buyers book a RICS survey. Numerous defects will impact a property, including unsafe chimney circulation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

We are buying on a new development brownfield land. What should we do regarding nickel topsoil contamination?

A.

With this region's industrial history in parts of Tintern, topsoil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as water contaminants such as phenols.

Q.

The local agent has put forward a law firm which they often use. Do we need to instruct them?

A.

Your agent will be able to pressure a conveyancing firm they refer many clients to, and can therefore exert pressure on your behalf, however, such referrals must be carefully considered, as some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

If I am intending to buy in the parish of Llanfihangel Gobion, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Tintern, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Might the charges for my conveyancing hide any additional costs?

A.

No. Our solicitors do not charge any hidden extra charges under any circumstances.

Q.

Does a Tintern conveyancing solicitor advise us on the risk and history of possible flooding at Tintern for a Victorian property I am wanting to purchase?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer will apply for property conveyancing searches that incorporate Tintern historical flood risk data. In certain cases your lawyer in Tintern will typically advocate a more involved (e.g. Landmark) search.

Q.

How can we calculate stamp duty and what will we need to pay on a £296000 property?

A.

Stamp Duty in Tintern will rely on the purchase price. It is £8880 on a £296000 residential property.*
