Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What steps can we take to get out of paying stamp duty on the home?

A.

Stamp duty scheme should be treated with extreme caution in Catshill, because these schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed.

Q.

What can a Catshill conveyancing lawyer advise if the home I hope to purchase is situated in a Birmingham conservation area that possibly has incongruous dormer windows fitted?

A.

Birmingham council Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by your Catshill property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing will establish the existence of the appropriate council approval for any additions to the property.

Q.

What is the authority that has overall responsibility for overseeing the state of neglect Catshill conservation areas?

A.

Q.

If I am buying in Catshill near parsonage grounds, should you get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Property owners in a neighbourhood near a local church are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Catshill must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Catshill church properties include Christ Church.

Q.

The agent has suggested a firm of solicitors. Should I instruct this firm?

A.

An agent will usually refer a solicitors firm, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

What particular searches should the Catshill conveyancing solicitor do on a Catshill flat?

A.

The common conveyancing procedure will be to obtain the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search, Environmental and Limestone Search as well as any special local Catshill searches for example Official Search of Whole with Priority (OS1).
