Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Kingstanding?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs are frequently hidden in the small print. This small print is often not read by buyers and sellers in a hurry. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

I am buying in Kingstanding with ITL Mortgages - what do we need to check?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, will act on behalf of many CML-approved lenders.

Q.

Do any designated conservation areas in Kingstanding have the potential to impact the house we are buying?

A.

Conservation areas qualify regions of architectural or historic interest. A property solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area and offer more information.

Q.

I am buying a barn conversion in the parish of Adbolton. Do we need a chancel search?

Whichever Kingstanding parish in which you are buying, a property solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Kingstanding's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Kingstanding?

A.

Kingstanding is located in Bromsgrove District Council, The Council House, Burcot Lane, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B60 1AA, Call: 01527 881 288

Q.

How do I find out additional information on the conservation areas in Kingstanding?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled a detailed list on the condition of conservation areas in Kingstanding and across England along with the trend. Conservation area concerns e.g. public spaces, the addition of stone cladding or ugly highway signs are managed by the local authority (Birmingham).

Q.

Does your solicitors company advise on the conveyancing of auction properties in Kingstanding?

A.

Our firm is very capable working with property auction conveyancing. Quite often unusually constructed houses like structurally defective property, are bought at property auctions which demand increased due diligence. We therefore encourage buyers to instruct the property conveyancing lawyer before the day of the auction to allow for a title report. Following the auction day arrives your selected lawyer will be focused on completing the transaction inside a as tight time frame as required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

If you are buying in Kingstanding on the same road as parsonage grounds, should we get a chancel liability search?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Kingstanding properties is likely to exist. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church properties in the area where chancel liability may apply include Saint Mark and St Luke.
