I am soon to exchange buying a property in Bargoed but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the owner in the sum of £2k taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement however UBS will not agree to this. Should they have been notified?
The conveyancing practitioner being on the UBS approved list is duty bound to disclose to UBS of any variations to the sale price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to disclose the price change to UBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, UBS and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Bargoed.
I can see plenty of information on this site concerning conveyancing in Bargoed but what is your top tip for selecting the right conveyancer in Bargoed
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Bargoed conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.
My wife and I buying a victorian detached house in Bargoed. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will legal due diligence on the property include enquiries to ascertain if these works are permitted?
Your conveyancer will check the registered title as conveyancing in Bargoed will sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which prevent categories of alterations or need the consent of a 3rd party. Some extensions require local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be prudent to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

Various web forums that I have frequented warn that are the primary cause of delay in Bargoed house deals. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Bargoed.
three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Bargoed took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
