I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. How do we get a quote?


Both high-street and online property lawyers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions that unknowing buyers and sellers have not reviewed Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on any quote for conveyancing in Solihull Any extra costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


What type of local searches in connection with the potential risk of local flooding in the Birmingham and the Black Country region will my Solihull conveyancing solicitor be able to carry out on an investment property we are purchasing?


A lawyer will apply for conveyancing searches, which include Solihull historical flood risk data.


How frequent is gazumping?


The custom of rejecting a previously accepted offer when a better one is made by another buyer is known as gazumping. The danger of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as soon as you can to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.


What will the searches cost?


With Homeward Legal, a purchase conveyancing client expected to pay no more than £249 for searches in Solihull. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party.


I have been reading about handling the legal work when buying a home. Might it be a good economy to take care of all of the legal work ourselves?


Legally speaking there are no arguments why a buyer shouldn't look after the bulk of the conveyancing unaided. The truth is however that a property solicitor in Solihull juggles a huge array of tasks such as applying for office copies of lease and other land reg docs or representing the mortgage lender which require a qualified professional. Despite that firms and their solicitors are under a duty to take out the applicable indemnity insurance to safeguard you in the event of any errors on the part of the solicitor.


To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we organise a fast conveyancing process?


Most importantly, a fast completion is crucial to instruct a proactive conveyancing solicitor. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Do they use email?
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?


We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately added unfitting stone cladding to the house which I think may infringe on Barston conservation area criteria.


Your property solicitor is required to establish if the property is within a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have appropriate permissions from the Solihull planning authority. If no appropriate consents can be provided, your solicitor will inform you of the best alternative e.g. obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective approval from Solihull local authority.


If we are purchasing near Solihull, in the parish of Burton Joyce with Bulcote, do we need a chancel search?


Your conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Although some church councils have decided to impose chancel repairs on the owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will continue to be free from liability. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
