Q.

We need a cheap Alvechurch solicitor to purchase a residence. Can you assist?

Are the many designated conservation areas in Alvechurch likely to affect us?

A.

Locales deemed to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', such as historic transport links, will be registered as conservation areas. Your lawyer will advise further and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works, regarding specific conservation areas in Alvechurch.

Q.

Bookshops have abundant helpful books about by passing the solicitor e.g. Buying, Selling and Letting Property . Do we necessarily have to use Alvechurch property solicitor ?

A.

Technically, there is no reason at all why you should not handle the your own conveyancing on your own.

However, a property solicitor is familiar with a huge array of jobs ranging from interpreting replies to enquiries and identifying conservation area breaches which require training. Despite that lawyers are duty bound to possess sufficient professional indemnity insurance that protects you from any professional errors.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings include what?

A.

In the absence of any appropriate consents, your conveyancing solicitor will inform you of the options, which include obtaining from the council or indemnity insurance.

Q.

Food risk searches may be conveyancing protocol but when one considers recent events such as the serious flooding last year in the Midlands are they still appropriate to check enough about the changing Alvechurch flood risk area?

A.

A conveyancer in Alvechurch should apply for environmental searches if the initial conveyancing searches spots a risk.

Perhaps you could also speak to a neighbour or local resident to gain extra information.

Q.

Is there a risk that our purchase will be gazumped?

A.

The practice of rejecting the first offer post-acceptance when a higher offer is made by a second buyer is known as gazumping. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. Consider instructing your conveyancing solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

At what point should you instruct a conveyancer in Alvechurch?

A.

Prompt instruction of a firm for a purchase may mean that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.
