Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Several solicitors purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. The quote should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately fitted windows on the flat which I think might overstep the School Road conservation area guidelines.

A.

Your instructed property solicitor will carry out searches to check if the property is inside a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the requisite consent from the Wakefield authority.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping happens when a purchaser's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the house seller, in favour of a higher offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. You should instruct a fast, efficient solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Hall Green?

A.

Hall Green is located in Birmingham City Council, Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BB, contact: 0121 303 1111

Q.

I f I read up on handling the legal work when buying a house - Is it a good idea to take care of the legal side ourselves?

A.

There is no argument why you cannot embark on the greater majority of the your own conveyancing without the help of an expert conveyancing solicitor in Hall Green. In reality however, a Hall Green lawyer typically handles a huge number of functions e.g. chasing deeds and applying for searches which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor. Above all amateur lawyers will be working without the applicable insurance that legal firms are required by the Law Society to be covered by.

Q.

Can Hall Green former industrial site topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Hall Green, but some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. Also considering issues such as disinfection by-products, contaminants affecting Hall Green property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

We are intending to buy in Hall Green. Can I check if the house is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of architectural merit, such as country house estates, will be designated as conservation areas. Conservation areas in Hall Green include School Road. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits will include protection for parks and green spaces.
