Useful local Burntwood public transport and public service details:

Hednesford train station is almost 4 miles from Burntwood. The closest airport to Burntwood is Birmingham Airport (18 miles). Wolverhampton Business Airport Airport is 19 miles away.

Drivers are well served with Burntwood enjoying good major road access of Junction 6 Southbound of the M6T.

St Johns Lichfield is the nearest hospital.

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.

Will we need a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Wolverhampton St Peter?

A.

A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Burntwood, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of Wolverhampton St Peter, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

We are purchasing a £895k Burntwood property. What will be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax rates?

Stamp Duty in Burntwood will rely on the house or flat's value. On a £895k house or flat, stamp duty will be £35800.

Q.

Burntwood property lawyers conduct necessary property when instructed by a property buyer,, but which particular ones?

A.

If applying for a mortgage the mortgage lender insist that at least the following Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps specific local Burntwood searches, like a Bankruptcy Search (K16).

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Burntwood?

A.

Burntwood is located in Lichfield District Council, District Council House, Frog Lane, Lichfield, Staffordshire, WS13 6YY, contact: 01543 308 000

Q.

How early should we speak to a solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

Whether buying or selling, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Promptly instructing a solicitor for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Burntwood, and are they checked for comprehensively?

A.

Residential property may have been contaminated by a broad range of human activities, and an environmental search will confirm that a plot of land could be affected by contaminants including nearby waste management facilities or petroleum and fuel sites.

Q.

In relation to the major flooding in 2012 in the Midlands I am questioning if property environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Flood searches conducted by a Burntwood conveyancer will also include the far more in depth search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

Perhaps you could contact a local resident for additional local history.
