Q.

I need to find a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing in Dudley. What should we check?

A.

The confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid ought to be defined on your conveyancing quote

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report necessary when buying a house in Dudley?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that buyers arrange a building survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many defects that affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, including severe weathering.

Q.

Is a property in Priory eligible for disadvantaged area relief?

A.

Dudley stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas expires in April 2013. Disadvantaged areas in Dudley include Brierley Hill, Castle and Priory, St. Thomas's, Brockmoor & Pensett, Lye and Wollescote and Netherton

and Woodside. Update: As of the 2013/14 tax year, stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas is no longer available.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk able to move quickly on residential property auction conveyancing in Dudley?

A.

Yes - The legal team are familiar with local and national auctions and often work for buyers at auction. It is prudent for bidders to formally instruct a local firm as soon as they can to allow adequate time for a review of the sellers documents prior to the auction. Following the auction your Homeward Legal lawyer is thoroughly ready for rapidly completing the purchase inside a month as conventionally required .

Q.

I am interested in purchasing in Dudley. How do I establish whether the residence is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas distinguish local areas of architectural or historic interest. Wordsley Church, Stourbridge Branch Canal (Canal Street) and Wollaston are among the conservation areas in Dudley. The advantages of these restrictions include confidence that property will retain its value, but they can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. Your lawyer will be able to advise further.

Q.

Can we bypass paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered, as such schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Dudley?

A.

Dudley is located in Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council, Sandwell Council House, PO Box 2374, Oldbury, West Midlands, B69 3DE, contact: 0845 358 2200

Q.

What kind of local conveyancing searches regarding the risk of flooding to properties in West Midlands will the Dudley property lawyer actually do?

A.

A critical step in the legal procedure involves your solicitor carrying out property environmental searches that provide specific information on the subject of Dudley area flood risk.
