Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Neath

Just been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Neath who completed the legal work two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of house move (a leasehold property and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a home loan from Alliance & Leicester . It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Should I look for an alternative conveyancer?

The costs illustration is slightly on the expensive side. If you are content to expend time comparing costs you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by perhaps £100 plus VAT. That being said, providing that you were happy with the conveyancing the firm gave you couldcome to rue opting for an an unknown solicitor. Don't forget to check the conveyancer can also act for Alliance & Leicester .

My aunt informed me that in buying a property in Neath there could be a number of restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external alterations to a property. Is this right?

There are a number of properties in Neath which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Neath should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

I am expecting a DIP from TSB this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do TSB recommend any Neath solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Neath solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the TSB conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and TSB through the process.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Neath. I have a mortgage agreed with Barclays. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Barclays, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel.

About to purchase a new build flat in Neath. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Neath

    Please supply a car parking plan. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

I'm refinancing my primary home to a BTL mortgage with TSB and intend to use the remaining equity as a deposit on a second property. The location we are talking about is Neath. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of banks and tie in the two deals?

Do use our search tool on this site to be sure that the lawyers are approved by both banks. Assuming that they are the solicitor will be able to tie up the two deals but you should have a chat with you solicitor and communicate your expectations and requirements.

Please can you refer me to a good Neath lawyer for purchasing a flat? A relative suggested one but their estimate was £995 plus VAT for a 150k property. That seems a wee bit steep. The lender will be Barclays.

The purpose of this site is restricted to being a directory service for conveyancing practitioners who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Barclays in certain areas such as Neath . Our intention is not to recommend any specific conveyancing practitioner.
