Can you advise how I circumvent paying stamp duty in Acocks Green?


Stamp Duty Land Tax must be paid for property purchases sold for more than £125,000. We do not recommend purchasers risk any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty, with interest, will be due.


Is it important to get a chancel search if we are buying in Acocks Green?


Chancel repair liability can require some home owners to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of a local church. Some names or words such as 'abbey' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Acocks Green Church of England properties include St Mary.


Is a building survey sensible when we are purchasing residential property?


It is firmly advised that you book a RICS survey if purchasing in Acocks Green. There are many problems that affect a property, which include wet rot and poor ventilation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


What should I be conscious of if buying a modified home in a Birmingham planning authority designated conservation area ?


An integral part of conveyancing for buyers involves procurement of searches of Birmingham council to check conservation area status and the required consent for developments. Should no appropriate permissions be available, your Acocks Green conveyancer will recommend the alternatives like seeking cover from an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.
