Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £611,000 residence?

A.

Several conveyancers offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs will be included in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Additional charges found in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. The quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

We are intending to buy a property in Pentyrch. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor could advise a chancel search. In Tonteg's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

We are concerned about the council tax charges on a Forties detached property in Tonteg, what are they?

A.

Normally the title report should contain the Caerphilly council tax band. Up-to-date rates for residents of Tonteg are published on the Caerphilly local authority website. Currently, 08 December 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £733.65
  • Band B - £855.92
  • Band C - £978.20
  • Band D - £1,100.47
  • Band E - £1,345.02
  • Band F - £1,589.57
  • Band G - £1,834.12
  • Band H - £2,200.94

Q.

I've had a quote from you. Will we be billed any hidden charges?

A.

No. Our solicitors will never charge any hidden fees. Be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

Please suggest how to get out of paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax usually must be paid for homes sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty scheme is not recommended, because these schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

Would it be shrewd to do the conveyancing myself ourselves.

A.

There is no argument why a home seller shouldn't carry out the your own conveyancing without a proficient Tonteg conveyancer. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor handles a large number of skilled tasks such as approving completion statements and interpreting planning contraventions most of which require a qualified solicitor. Even more importantly amateur lawyers do not have the appropriate indemnity cover that all legal firms need to be covered by.

Q.

We need to know which Tonteg lenders you can work with. Whose panels are you on?

Q.

With a freehold house ready to buy, with no mortgage, how can we ensure a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that fast conveyancing is essential to is to use a proactive conveyancer. Beyond that, there are numerous things you can also do to accelerate the process. These include:

  • contacting your conveyancer regularly
  • promptly completing and return any forms
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements
