Roadandrail in Caerphilly

Local Transport Issues

Significant highway works, or the expansion of the UK's rail system, can cause a great deal of inconvenience to unlucky homeowners living near construction. Buyers should be aware of any schemes (underway, or planned) in the Caerphilly area. Your solicitor will undertake relevant searches to show any proposals for the following in respect of any highway adjoining the property:

  • making it one-way
  • permanently stopping it up or diverting it
  • introducing parking restrictions or changing existing restrictions (including residents parking permits)
  • introducing width or weight restrictions
  • speed restrictions, traffic calming measures including speed humps (sleeping policemen)
  • cycle tracks
Note that a scheme may be under active consideration by Caerphilly council staff, but until formal proposals are published it will not be revealed in the search.

Chancel in Caerphilly

What is Chancel Repair Liability?

Liability for chancel repair applies to parishes throughout the UK, where properties built on rectorial land remains subject to that estate's obligations. The potential for chancel repair liabilities has been passed down to successive owners of homes in Caerphilly which were once part of rectorial land.

Chancel Liability changes

The Government acknowledges that the existence of a liability for chancel repair will affect the value of the property in question. In many cases, this effect can be mitigated by relatively inexpensive insurance, but in order to make the process of identifying affected land as fast as possible, new legislation requires the church to register their interest before 2003.

Performing Chancel Liability Searches on Caerphilly homes

Even though an in-depth search is specific to the property, it is still not definitive, as demonstrating liability may rely on obscure or ambiguous centuries-old records. If a liability is identified via this search, then indemnity insurance potentially may be harder to obtain. If you do not wish to take the risk, insurance is available to protect you in the event that the local Caerphilly church does opt to pursue their right to claim repair costs. As the liability is purely financial, it can be covered easily and remedied easily via such a policy. Arranging indemnity insurance is generally inexpensive and straightforward.

Following several cases, including Representative Body of the Church in Wales v Tithe Redemption Commission (1944), and Acts passed in the early 20th Century, homes in Wales are less likely to be impacted by chancel liability.

Lenders in Caerphilly

What are the consequences if your solicitor is not on your Lender's panel?

Lenders once permitted any solicitors' firm to join their panel. These panels were established so that firms could join and thereby perform legal work on mortgages on behalf of lenders. However, mortgage lenders have started removing firms which do not carry out much work for them, or have not met certain additional criteria. If your lender does not accept your chosen solicitor, you must make a decision as to how to proceed:

  • Instruct another firm who is on your lender's panel, or,
  • Find a mortgage from a different lender

You could also choose to work with your current solicitor, but you will have to pay the lender's costs in addition to your own, as they will instruct a member of their panel.

Mining in Caerphilly

Do you need to get a coal mining conveyancing search when you purchase a property in Caerphilly?

Coal mining has taken place in many parts of the country, including around Caerphilly. An official mining search gives the benefit of insurance cover for residential properties against any loss of value (up to £ 50k) if there is any material change in the information supplied in a further search ( e.g. by a subsequent buyer). After all the coal has been removed from an area mined with modern methods, the site should be restored. A separate environmental search is therefore also required in affected areas. Despite the lack of a central registry, there are a number of private companies which have assembled information from old records, modern surveys and aerial photographs. There is no single source of information about areas where other minerals were mined, but these workings mostly occur in areas where there is fortunately no significant housing.

There are approximately 57 areas in Caerphilly where a mining search is required. These include; Hollybush, Risca, Newbridge, Abercarn, Ystrad Mynach, Gelligaer and Cwmfelinfach.

Suggestions when comparing Caerphilly solicitors conveyancing fees

Solicitors conveyancing fees are the sums paid to the Caerphilly conveyancer for the actual conveyancing.

Conveyancing disbursements, such as a Subsidence Risk Report - Arboriculture or ground rent service charge, are basically extra fees sustained by the conveyancing solicitor on your behalf.

It is of vital importance that you always read the conveyancing property lawyers terms of business when comparing Caerphilly solicitors conveyancing fees.

Conveyancing for a New Build House
