Q.

On the purchase of a 574,000 residence, what will be the fees? I need low cost conveyancing in Whitland.

A.

Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs will be included in the terms and conditions. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What can a Whitland property lawyer do when the house we are buying is within a conservation area and has unauthorised windows fitted?

A.

Carmarthenshire council Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by your solicitor as part of the conveyancing should check whether the property is within a conservation area and evidence of planning authority consent for changes to the property will be asked for.

Q.

The web is full of collections of guidebooks going into great depth on doing the legal work yourself for example A Practical Approach to Conveyancing by Robert Abbey and Mark Richards. Do I need to use a property solicitor in Whitland ?

A.

Theoretically speaking there is no reason why you cannot engage in the bulk of the legal work unaided. However, a lawyer is familiar with a large array of exercises including chasing missing documents or notifying parties of completion which really need a qualified solicitor. In any event however, solicitors firms must be covered

by suitable indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you from any failures on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Llanboidy?

A.

The property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have opted to charge chancel repairs on owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Whitland?

A.

The short answer is, earlier is preferable, as conveyancing involves various tasks which may be performed very early in the process. Instructing a solicitor early for a purchase can mean that you will the details of your Whitland solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.

Q.

Which searches should my Whitland solicitor carry out for a Whitland property?

A.

The regular conveyancing procedure will be to get these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search and perhaps specific searches, like a Chancel check Search.

Q.

Do I need a homebuyer report?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that the majority of buyers arrange a home surveyor. A range defects have a negative impact on a property. These can include corrosion of pipework, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

My partner and I are interested in purchasing a property in Whitland. Are there any designated conservation areas?

A.

The areas near or within Whitland include several areas of conservation. A solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works and be able to offer more information.
