Moving to a property in Bilston? Helpful local Bilston transport and services information -

Bilston is less than three miles off the M6 junction entry 10 Southbound.

The closest train station to Bilston is Coseley, approximately a mile away. Wolverhampton Business Airport Airport is 9 miles from Bilston. Birmingham Airport is 17 miles and away.

New Cross Wolverhampton is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor in Bilston to sell a flat?

A.

This catches out many sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may inflate your solicitor's invoice. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are selling.

Q.

The vendor appears to have fitted unseemly windows to the maisonette in Bilston which I think might possibly violate conservation area criteria

A.

Your instructed property lawyer will carry out searches identify if your new home is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the appropriate permissions.

Q.

Which lender panels in Bilston are your solicitors on?

A.

Homeward Legal are able to work with all the major lenders assisting home purchasers in Bilston. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Tipton & Coseley,

Castle St, Bilston, WV14 9DW, and Tipton & Coseley Building Society, 73 Church St, Bilston, WV14 0BJ.

Q.

Can doing the conveyancing myself save any cash?

A.

There are no arguments why a home seller should not conduct bulk of the legal work without a specialist Bilston property lawyer. The truth is however that a conveyancer carries out a long list of roles from e.g. checking redemption statements or interpreting management accounts most of which require a skilled professional.

Critically amateur lawyers will be working without acceptable insurance cover which practicing solicitors firms must get.

Q.

Is a TT fee a fee or disbursement?

A.

Every disbursement and fee should be identified on a quote, with no additional costs in the terms and conditions. This cost,e.g., is a fee not a disbursement, and will in most cases be included in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Misterton?

A.

Regardless of the Bilston parish in which you are buying, the conveyancer should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. In Bilston's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a property where parish councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What makes conveyancing to be so delayed?

A.

Conveyancing may take more time than budgeted. Homeward Legal work hard to reduce their impact whenever possible.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in July, what should be calculated for stamp duty?

A.

The rate of stamp duty you must pay will depend on a small number of factors, primarily the value of the property. On a £98000 house, stamp duty will be £0 (information correct 17/02/2013).
