Q.

We need to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Kingswinford. Can you assist?

A.

Various solicitors promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms which homeowners may have not read carefully Costs should be reasonable. They be applicable if the solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Radcliffe on Trent?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor could advise a chancel search. Chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties converted house in Kingswinford?

A.

Customarily the report on title will give the Dudley council tax band.

Council tax charges for residents of Kingswinford are published at the Dudley local authority website. As of 13/01/2013 band rates are:

  • Band A - £848.00

  • Band H - £2,545.00

Q.

Will the conveyancing charges include any additional charges?

A.

No. Our solicitors will never charge any hidden charges under any circumstances. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

How does a Kingswinford solicitor advise us on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Kingswinford region?

A.

A critical component in the conveyancing protocol involves your conveyancing solicitor carrying out environmental searches that go in specific information about the Kingswinford flooding.

Q.

If my family are buying a property by parish grounds in Kingswinford, is it recommended that I get a chancel liability search?

A.

Owners of property in Kingswinford may be subject to chancel repair liability. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including local maps. Kingswinford church lands include St Mary.

Q.

How is Kingswinford contaminated land investigated?

A.

Land is contaminated by numerous natural causes and human activities, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a house may be affected by local contaminants like sand or clay quarries and environmental radon sources. Endville Road, Wallheath, DY6 0AS is one such potential cause of contamination in Kingswinford.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller appears to have fitted roof aerials to the property which I think may contravene The Village conservation area rules.

A.

Your lawyer will carry out searches find out if the property is inside a conservation area and whether any alterations have necessary consents from the Dudley authority.
