How do we find affordable conveyancing?


This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Any disbursements must also be stated on a quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

We are intending to be moving out of our period property on the outskirts of Tipton into a home in Sutton Coldfield . What is the optimum stage to book a removals firm?


Most lawyers usually recommend that sellers wait until after the contracts have exchanged because a moving date will not have been contractually agreed. For a local Birmingham and the Black Country company BGP Removals Ltd, 79 Great Bridge, Tipton, DY4 7HF Call: 0121 567 5539 or Manneh Shipment & Removals, 2 Wilday Close, Tipton, DY4 8GE Telephone: 0121 369 7248.


Should I use a lawyer referred by the local agent?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.


How is contaminated land in Tipton checked when purchasing a house?


Land in Tipton would be contaminated by a wide range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a plot of land may be affected by contaminants in the area including pollution incidents or other sources of contaminated land. Himley Wood Landfill, Crooked House Lane, West Midlands, DY3 4DA may be one source of local contamination.


What are fixtures and fittings?


There is not a absolute definition of fixtures and fittings, leading to potential for frustration after a sale completes. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
