Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? I need to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate.

A.

Many property buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into the terms of engagement. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Myself and my partner are buying in Great Barr. Can I verify if the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas recognise areas of architectural merit. Great Barr itself is named as a conservation area. Living in a conservation area can mean security that the surroundings are unlikely to change, but the restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Could our conveyancing quote have any extra fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any hidden extra charges for your conveyancing legal work. A Homeward Legal conveyancing quote is an single, accurate price the legal expenses for your transaction.

Q.

When we are buying a Great Barr house next to a church, do you recommend that I get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners proximate to nearby church property may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Church properties in Great Barr where a chancel search may be appropriate include S.Margaret, St Matthew and St Paul.

Q.

We are buying on a new-build ex-industrial use land. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Great Barr. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contaminants like phenols.

Q.

What kind of flood plain searches about the risk of local flooding in Birmingham and the Black Country will a Great Barr conveyancing solicitor do?

A.

An important component in the legal due diligence procedure involves a lawyer applying for property environmental searches that provide certain details with regard to risk of flooding in Great Barr.

Q.

If I plan to purchase near Great Barr, in the parish of Hockerton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer could advise that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Unexpected financial circumstances dictate that we would prefer to exchange contracts on the legal work on our property rapidly, do you use fast solicitors in Great Barr ?

A.

Our lawyers take a completely speed focused style to completing the legal work for clients as quickly as possible. With Homeward Legal, conveyancing lawyers will always communicate up and down the buyer and seller chain and that always utilise speed focused case management and technology systems to complete your home move as quickly as possible.
