A.

A key step in the conveyancing protocol involves a conveyancer applying for environmental searches that offer some details regarding the local Acocks Green flood risk. At the time of writing (03/02/13) reports on the Environment Agency website don’t reveal any flood warnings in the Acocks Green area.

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Laxton?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Acocks Green or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer may suggest

that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Acocks Green, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a property where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Does your solicitors firm manage the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Acocks Green?

A.

Homeward Legal is very capable working with residential property auction protocols. Quite often specialist properties e. g. development properties are bought at auction and these need extra examination by the lawyer. Homeward Legal therefore strongly encourage that auction buyers decide on a suitable lawyer before the auction day to allow enough time for a full review of the legal pack. Subsequently, following the auction your experienced conveyancing solicitor will be geared up to finishing the transaction inside a as tight time frame as typically required .

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

How long on average should I expect it to take for my assigned property lawyer to carry out the conveyancing process for a flat in a building we are intending to buy?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between around a month and twelve weeks, which can depend on any number of things for example the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancer, or the time taken to get a mortgage offer.
