Ladywood travel information and addresses ;

Ladywood's nearest train station is Five Ways at 1 mile s. The closest airport to Ladywood is Birmingham Airport. Coventry Airport is 21 mile and Wolverhampton Business Airport Airport is 15 miles away.

Birmingham City is the neighbouring hospital.


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


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.


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


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.


The estate agent we're using in Chessington has named a conveyancing. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct this solicitor?


If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you the agent can use their influence pressure a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.


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


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.


Please tell us why sale conveyancing work takes such a long time?


Conveyancing can be delayed for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, the causes are unhappily out of the solicitors' control. Homeward Legal strive to curtail their effect whenever it is feasible by driving the sale or purchase forward.


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


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.


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


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:

  • Band A - £841.00
  • Band B - £981.00
  • Band C - £1,121.00
  • Band D - £1,261.00
  • Band E - £1,542.00
  • Band F - £1,822.00
  • Band G - £2,102.00
  • Band H - £2,522.00


Property conveyancing searches are ascertained from archived records but when one considers recent flooding for example the major flooding in 2012 in the Midlands are they the best way to determine enough about the Ladywood flood risk?


A diligent property solicitor in Ladywood should always get conveyancing searches (environmental) if the first search establishes a any kind of Ladywood flood risk.

For more assurance it could be worth trying to get in touch with a neighbour of the property.
