Local issues considered by Vale Of Glamorgan Conveyancing Solicitors

Contaminated in Vale Of GlamorganLenders in Vale Of GlamorganLenders in Vale Of Glamorgan

Is your home built on Contaminated Land?

Contaminated land has a statutory definition, but the term is also used generally to cover a wide range of situations where a site has been suffered an ongoing detrimental impact as a result of its use, and if land on or near a property is recognised as contaminated within the statutory definition, this information will be included in a local search. Buyers should be aware that prior to the full impact of industrial-use land had been understood, redevelopment often took place of old warehouses or factories without first cleaning up traces of waste chemicals.

Landfill sites in the local area:

  • Aberthaw Quarry Ash Disposal Site, Lafarge Cement Works, East Aberthaw, CF62 3ZR. The site has not been classified.
  • Aberthaw Ash Disposal Site, The Leys, , CF62 4ZW. The site has not been classified.
  • Blue Circle Cement, Blue Circle Cement, Aberthaw Cement Works, Glamorgan, CF62 3ZR. The site has been classified as non-hazardous.

Issues to consider when your lawyer is not on your Lender's panel

Panels of solicitors are maintained by mortgage lenders in order to undertake legal work on mortgaged properties. More recently, lenders have begun to remove firms which have either not completed many conveyancing transactions or have failed to meet other criteria. If your lender does not accept your chosen solicitor, you must make a decision as to how to proceed:

  • Try to obtain a mortgage from another lender who will instruct your Conveyancing solicitor.
  • Instruct another firm of Conveyancing solicitors who are on your lender's panel to handle your Conveyancing.
  • Continue with your present Conveyancing solicitor, but accept that a separate firm will also act for the lender, and that you will have to pay their costs in addition.

It is usually cheaper to have the same firm act both for you and your lender, and carry out all the conveyancing work in connection with a purchase and the mortgage. If you choose to remain with your first choice of Vale Of Glamorgan-based solicitor, consider the following:

  • Your lenders will instruct another firm, and you will have to pay their costs in addition to your own
  • Your solicitor will have to send documents and information to the other solicitors, and wait for a response, which can cause delays
  • Your case will be one of many which the lender's solicitors are dealing with, so it will be more difficult to engineer any priority treatment
  • You cannot contact these solicitors directly, as they will be acting for the lender, not for you
