Birmingham City is the neighbouring hospital.

Q.

On the purchase of a £431k house, what will be the fees? We are looking for an affordable Ladywood conveyancing estimate.

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs may be added into small print. Charges included in terms of engagement should be fair.

Q.

In what ways can my conveyancing solicitor in Ladywood advise me on the risk of possible flooding in the Ladywood area?

A.

An essential component in the conveyancing protocol involves a conveyancing solicitor carrying out property conveyancing searches that go into details on the subject of Ladywood flooding. At the time of writing (26/02/13) reports on the Environment Agency don’t indicate any active flood warnings in the Ladywood area.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Ladywood?

A.

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

Q.

My partner and I are purchasing in Ladywood. Are there any designated conservation areas in the area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as historic transport links, will be registered as conservation areas. You may wish

to contact the local council for further information, but your solicitor will address this during the house-buying process.

Q.

Prudential Banking is our lender - what do I need to know?

A.

When arranging a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased legal costs for house purchasers in cases where the preferred solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal will act for many CML-approved lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

We are buying on a new development ex-industrial use land. What should we do regarding vanadium soil contamination?

A.

With this region's industrial history in parts of Ladywood, soil contamination is difficult to avoid. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as solvents and herbicides, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What should I be aware of if buying a loft conversion within a Birmingham planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the due diligence for buyers involves ordering of LLC1 searches of Birmingham council to see conservation area status and the appropriate consent for modifications. If no necessary permissions be in evidence your solicitor will recommend the options such as buying an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective approval from the planning authority.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Fifties semi-detached property in Ladywood?

A.

More often than not a conveyancing report on title will include the relevant Birmingham council tax band. The latest tax charges for properties in Ladywood are published online at the Birmingham local authority site. As of 19/07/2012 rates for all bands are:
