There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Risca but how do I know who's good?

It would be unwise to be tempted by the lowest Risca conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. 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.

I am planning to move property in July. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Risca. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across this site.

On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from your property agent but this should only happen when the previous owners conveyancers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you should tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Risca or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Risca.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Risca conveyancing practitioner having made sure that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Risca surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Risca in advance of appointing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to issue a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

One month into a sale of a flat in Risca. Conveyancing is fine but we have been asked to pay an extortionate amount by the landlord. To date we have paid £237 for a leasehold management information and then another £134.40 for additional queries raised by the purchaser's conveyancing practitioner.

Your property lawyer will unlikely have any control over the level of the charges for this information however the average fee for the information for Risca leasehold property is £355. When it comes to Risca conveyancing sales it is conventional for the vendor to pay for these costs. The freeholder or their agents are not duty bound to answer such questions although many will be content to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices disproportionate to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that mandates set charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any set time limit by which they are obliged to supply answers.
