Conveyancing in Roath : Keep it Local

Reasons to use our Roath conveyancing solicitors

  • 1 There is a better than average chance that the other side’s solicitors are located in Roath - if so sets of solicitors will be less confrontational
  • 2 Cut price packages from online conveyancers might seem attractive. However, these organisations are often based hundreds of kilometers away with little appreciation of the factors that affect property transactions in Roath
  • 3 The mark of a good conveyancing solicitor in Roath is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by large estate agency chains) sometimes falls short of the level of professionalism you will expect.
  • 4 Roath solicitors work in conjunction with Roath estate agents, developers, surveyors, lenders and other professionals to make sure that a quality service is offered to clients every step of the way, to ensure you’re kept informed as to progress all the way along
  • 5 Our site is the first site offering you the facility to ensure that your property ownership legalities in Roath will be carried out by a law firm on your mortgage lender’s member panel.

I am under pressure from the executor of a property in Roath to complete within four weeks. What can be done to expedite the buying process?

First, If you are under time constraints for your conveyancing we would recommend that your solicitor is familiar with the location as they will benefit local contacts and insight. It is even conceivable that they may have conducted otherhomes in the same neighbourhood. Therefore consider using a Roath conveyancing firm. Second, ensure that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is said that nearly one in five of Roath conveyancing transactions are suspended or derailed after finding out that a buyer’s conveyancer was not on their banks panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the legal transfer of property being held up by an average of three weeks. It is claimed that this issue affects approximately one hundred thousand home moves every year. Almost all Roath conveyancing firms can not represent certain mortgage companies so do check at the outset.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Roath and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Roath conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Roath. We have lived in Roath for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Roath. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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.
