Q.

I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Harborne. as we are on a budget.

A.

Numerous conveyancers offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees may be added into small print that home owners often do not check. The disbursements to be paid must also be stated on your conveyancing quote

Q.

How is SDLT measured, how much do we need to budget for a £520000 Harborne house?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the home's price. On a £520000 house or flat in Harborne, stamp duty will be £20800.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors experienced enough to move fast on auction conveyancing in Harborne?

A.

The legal team work closely with auctioneers and commonly do the legal work for auction buyers and sellers. Our niche auction team of conveyancing lawyers have been instructed by many successful bidders at local auctions that, amongst others, include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Smart auction buyers know to instruct a lawyer as early as possible to allow enough time for a full review of the sellers documents well before the property auction date.

After the property auction date your now prepared property conveyancing lawyer is prepared for quickly completing the transaction in 4 weeks as usually required .

Q.

Which particular property searches conveyancing searches will my Harborne conveyancer get when acting on a Harborne house?

A.

The customary procedure will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search, Environment Search and Limestone Search and perhaps less common searches, which might include Coal and Brine.

Q.

We plan to buy a rectory in the parish of Markham Clinton or West Markham. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In older areas of Harborne, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

We are planning to buy with HSBC Bank - what do we need to consider?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. A small number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, are able to act on behalf of the majority of lenders.

Harborne is located in Birmingham City Council, Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BB, phone: 0121 303 1111
