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.

Is it recommended to get a chancel liability search? I am buying a Harborne property close to a 16th Century 'parson's close'.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Harborne Church council. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Harborne ecclesiastical properties include SS Faith & Laurence, St John's and St Peter.

Q.

How do we protect ourselves from gazumping?

A.

Unfortunately, gazumping is widespread both in Harborne, and across Birmingham and the Black Country and takes place when a property owner accepts an offer and then dismisses it in favour of

a better offer. The danger of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. You should instruct your property solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately installed out of place removal of chimney stacks on the flat which might infringe on Moor Pool conservation area rules.

A.

Your instructed solicitor to establish if the property is within a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the necessary permissions from the local planning authority.

Q.

My local agent has offered the solicitor whom they usually use. Should we instruct them?

A.

It is commonplace for estate agents to recommend a conveyancing solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as the agent may prefer to suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Harborne?

A.

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

Q.

Why could the conveyancing process have so many delays?

A.

The Harborne conveyancing process will sometimes suffer setbacks. We seek to minimise the impact of these delays if it can be achieved.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to speak to a solicitor?

A.

The short answer is, the faster you instruct the better, as the legal work can start straight away. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm for a sale enables documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.
