Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £413k house? We are trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Burntwood.

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the terms. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on the quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Nationwide is going to be our lender - what do I need to know?

A.

Prior to recent changes, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. Buyers should consider that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. This can mean higher legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of many CML-approved lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Do your house conveyancing solicitors conduct residential property auction conveyancing in Burntwood?

A.

Our residential property lawyers do frequently carry out work for bidders at auction. Solicitors consistently advocate auction buyers to formally instruct a lawyer in advance of the day of the auction for a full investigation of the documents. Following the date of the auction your experienced lawyer is wholly able to concentrate on concluding the conveyancing inside as short a time frame as conventionally required .

Q.

My wife and I are intending to buy in Burntwood. Can we check that the property is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as mining villages, will be designated as areas of conservation. A conveyancing lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

I am buying a 1940s investment flat in one of the Burntwood conservation area. Where can I find more details on the state of repair?

A.

Conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Lichfield) who preserve things like paths to the hindrance of modern telephone boxes.

English Heritage, a government body, have created a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.

Q.

Do you recommend that we get searches for chancel liability? We are purchasing a home near a church constructed in the 16th Century in Burntwood.

A.

In Burntwood, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of specific local church buildings. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Churches in Burntwood include Chasetown St. Anne's, Christ Church, St John's Churchrooms and St John's Community Church, Chase Terrace.

Q.

What type of inquiry concerning the risk and history of possible flooding around Staffordshire will my Burntwood property lawyer look over?

A.

An integral component in the conveyancing procedure involves your conveyancing solicitor applying for property environmental searches that set out detail about the potential Burntwood flood risk. A more thorough flood history/risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) might be advised by a qualified property solicitor in Burntwood if the results of the enviro. search identify a risk of flooding.
