Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Roath

Would the conveyancing practitioners that you recommend execute auction conveyancing in Roath?

There are a few niche lawyers we can put you in touch with those specialising in auction conveyancing. Roath is just one of our locations in which our lawyers have a presence.

When can the exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Roath and do I need to be at the conveyancers office?

Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Roath you are invited in to sign documents. However, the firms we recommend supply a nationwide conveyancing service and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to address the formalities at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Roath)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

My partner and I are 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. A high street Roath conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an internet conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Roath. We have lived in Roath for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of 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 ailment)

I'm converting the mortgage on my primary property to a BTL loan with Accord Mortgages Ltd and I will use the ballance of the raised equity towards a second house. The neighborhood we are talking about is Roath. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two mortgage companies and tie in the two deals?

Do use our comparison tool on this site to check that the lawyers are approved by both banks. On the basis that they are the lawyer will be able to tie up the two deals but you should talk with you solicitor and specify your expectations and requirements.

Should I instruct a Roath conveyancing lawyer based in the vicinity that I am buying? An old friend can conduct the legal work but her office is 200miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Roath conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, hand in your identification documents and pester them if necessary. Having local Roath know how is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were content that must trump using an unknown Roath conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.
