How long on average should it take our assigned property lawyer to finish the conveyancing formalities on a semi detached Victorian house we are thinking of buying in Curdworth?
Completion can take anywhere from a month to 3 months, which can depend on any number of factors like the efficiency of the vendor's solicitor, or re-negotiations following a survey.
Do we need to select the lawyer that often works with by the agent?
Many estate agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.
Which local authority is responsible for Curdworth?
Curdworth is located in Birmingham City Council, Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BB, phone: 0121 303 1111
If we plan to purchase in the parish of Clarborough, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?
A property solicitor might recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates measured, and what will we need to pay on a £1182000 residential property?

How soon do you need to instruct a conveyancer to act on our purchase?
The straightforward answer is, the sooner the better, as there are several tasks that can be carried out very early in the process. A number of sources suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

A right of way on the property I’m buying is redundant, but how do I get it removed from the deeds and registry?
A right of way through the grounds of a property is probably an inheritance before other building in the vicinity occurred that has since made the passage through redundant.
But, while having the right of way registered with the deeds means that feasibly someone could insist that they use it (as their public right), but, if they can’t access where the right of way originally led, it makes it a pointless activity.
It’s so unlikely that anyone will want to do this that you have to weigh up the cost of the legal process to get the right of way officially removed against not proceeding. However, if you are at all worried, talk to your solicitor so that it can be investigated further as part of the conveyancing, at which point they can guide you on the appropriate action and the associated costs (this will be in addition to the standard fees for the conveyancing and your solicitor will advise of this additional cost).
Homeward Legal's solicitors provide transparent quotes, detailing what is included in the fees and disbursements and will help with estimates for additional legal work. So, now is the best time to get your conveyancing under way on 0800 038 6699.
