How do we get affordable conveyancing in Castle Bromwich?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many home owners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are frequently hidden in small print. Your quote should state the disbursements to be paid.


How can I uncover more information the status of conservation areas in Castle Bromwich and Castle Bromwich?


Local Castle Bromwich conservation area matters, like street furniture, removal of existing windows or billboards are handled by the local authority (North Warwickshire). English Heritage have created a list of the state of conservation areas.


The current owner has unfortunately added conspicuous roof antenna to the maisonette which I think might possibly break the Leyland Cross conservation area rules.


Part of the legal due diligence when buying a property includes making enquiries of North Warwickshire council to verify conservation area status and consent for any alterations. .


Will my assigned Castle Bromwich conveyancer inform me about the cost of council tax on a Band F flat prior to exchanging contracts?


Your property lawyer will contact the governing North Warwickshire local council to ascertain the currently applicable council tax band and rates, which will be written in the report on title.

Correct charges for Castle Bromwich are published on the North Warwickshire local authority website. At the time of authoring (02 November 2012) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,058.00
  • Band B - £1,234.00
  • Band C - £1,410.00
  • Band D - £1,587.00
  • Band E - £1,939.00
  • Band F - £2,292.00
  • Band G - £2,644.00
  • Band H - £3,173.00


Why does conveyancing take months to complete?


The legal work undertaken to transfer a property in Castle Bromwich will occasionally take more time. Homeward Legal see how frustrating such delays may be and work hard to reduce their cost wherever possible to do so.


Conveyancers in Castle Bromwich conduct some property when instructed to act for a home buyer - what particular searches?


When you are taking out a mortgage the lender mandates a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search,, and possibly unique particular for instance Chancel Search.


Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Willoughby on the Wolds?


Regardless of the Castle Bromwich parish you are buying in, the lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


Would you advise that we get a chancel liability search? We are buying in Castle Bromwich.


Where land in Castle Bromwich was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards upkeep of specific local church buildings. Parochial Church Councils in Castle Bromwich must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Castle Bromwich church lands where a chancel search may be necessary include SS Mary & Margaret and St Clement [of Alexandria].
