Listedbuildings in Carmarthenshire

How is the legal conveyancing process more difficult if you intend to purchase a grade II listed property?

Special planning consent must be obtained for alterations, extensions or demolition of a listed building. The listing system is administered by English Heritage. Buildings are listed in three grades:

  • Grade I buildings are those of exceptional interest
  • Grade II* are particularly important buildings of more than special interest
  • Grade II are of special interest, justifying every effort to preserve them

Fortunately, the planning process is not intended to stop any alterations to a listed building. Owners of flats or apartments in a listed building should bear in mind that the building maintenance costs of such properties may be higher than for purpose-built blocks.

Online Conveyancing Quotes

The online conveyancing myth is that there will be consequences to selecting a lower-cost online property lawyer over a high street firm. In reality, slow and expensive firms with high street offices exist, as do fast, low-cost solicitors that market online.

Though some home buyers prefer to be able to meet their solicitor face-to-face, you do not need to do so. A communicative, proactive conveyancing lawyer will often move you faster than a solicitor you need to take time off work to meet in person.

Guide on comparing Carmarthenshire solicitors conveyancing fees

If acquiring a new build house or flat, you will generally have to exchange and commit to buy the property before construction is finished.

Conveyancing for a new build is quite distinct from purchasing an existing house or flat. Carmarthenshire purchasers should arrange everything with their lender, and instruct a solicitor soon.

Mining in Carmarthenshire

Will you need an official coal and brine conveyancing search if buying a house in Carmarthenshire?

There has never been any central record of all mines, so it can be difficult to find comprehensive information about mining activity in or near Carmarthenshire. Official searches provide insurance cover for a house, protecting against a loss of value up to fifty thousand pounds. Coal is now often worked by the opencast method. This involves removal of soil and 'overburden' above the coal, which is then removed with heavy excavators. Large-scale opencast workings can impact on nearby property during operation, but the long-term consequences and impact on the environment may be generally less. Should a search reveal former mining activity in close proximity then a further survey may be required.

There are approximately 64 areas in Carmarthenshire where a mining search is required. These include; Crwbin, Cwmgorse, Five Roads, Pont Morlais, Llandybie, Carway and Saron.

Lenders in Carmarthenshire

Issues to consider when your lawyer 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.

Recently, lenders have changed the criteria for the firms which they will accept on their panels. They have also reduced the size of their panels, removing firms which do not carry out much Conveyancing work or which they consider to have proved unsatisfactory in the past. If your conveyancing solicitor is not on your preferred lender's panel, then the lender will not instruct that firm to act in connection with the mortgage. You then have a choice; you could either obtain a mortgage from another lender, or instruct another firm of conveyancer who are on the panel. Generally, it is cheaper to have the same firm act both for you and your lender, but you could also choose to persist with both your first choice of lender and solicitor, and pay for a lawyer selected by the lender to carry out the relevant legal work. Consider these issues if you are intending to stay with your solicitor rather than opt for your mortgage lender's choice:

  • You will have to pay your lender's legal costs
  • By being required to send documents to the lender's solicitors, delays will inevitably occur
  • You will be unable to contact the lender's firm directly, as they will be acting for the lender rather than you
