The most convenient hospital is Wolverhampton, New Cross.

Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I need a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges may be added into small print. A quote should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid. Costslisted in the small print should be reasonable and clear and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Should we get a homebuyer report?

A.

It is strongly suggested that purchasers in Coven book an inspection. It is a fact that there are a wide range of concerns which affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on. These can include ground movement.

Q.

When buying a period flat in a designated conservation areas. Where can I find information relating to the standard of repair?

Conservation areas in Coven are created by the local authority (South Staffordshire) who administer conservation area concerns from trees to the halting of rundown streets.

English Heritage have produced records of the condition of conservation areas.

Q.

What average time does it take our property solicitor to exchange the legal process for an apartment in a property we hope to buy?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from around a month and three months based on any number of factors like the efficiency of the vendor's solicitor, or the completeness of the management information.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in the area?

A.

Areas considered to be of historical or architectural value, like stretches of canals, may be defined as conservation areas. The advantages of these restrictions include more aesthetically pleasant surroundings, but they can make repairs more costly or time-consuming. Your solicitor will be able to provide more details.

Q.

Do your solicitors specialise the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Coven?

A.

Our company is familiar with sellers at auction. Regularly difficult to value auction lots are sold at property auctions which will want greater due diligence before buying. We therefore strongly suggest buyers at auction to appoint a lawyer well before the auction to give enough time for a full report. Following the property auction date your selected property conveyancing lawyer is completely prepared for finishing the conveyancing in 28 days as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.
