Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor to sell a freehold house?

A.

The confusion over this topic catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without using a Moseley property lawyer looks to be possible when buying and selling a flat. However be a good economy ?

A.

Technically speaking there is no argument at all why a home seller should not embark on the bulk of the your own conveyancing unaided. However, a property lawyer in Moseley is familiar with a huge number of exercises including raising additional enquiries or applying for searches some of which require training. In any event however, solicitors need to carry sufficient insurance cover to shield you from any omissions.

Q.

Are you experienced enough to complete fast the conveyancing for auction properties in Moseley?

A.

The legal team prepare legal packs for vendors and commonly get instructed by buyers at auction. It is prudent for buyers to formally appoint a good lawyer asap to allow time for a detailed report of the legal papers for the lot in advance of the property auction.

After the auction day itself, the conveyancing lawyer will be geared up to conclude the purchase legal work inside 28 days as typically required by the auction conditions.

Q.

Our estate agent has suggested the solicitors firm who they generally use. Will it be easier to use them?

A.

Many agents in Bala have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients to them, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Misterton, near Moseley?

A.

Whichever Moseley parish in which you are buying, a conveyancer might recommend a chancel search. In Moseley's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Are there many mortgage lenders with offices in Moseley?

A.

Homeward Legal are able to work with all the major lenders approved by the CML. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Moseley, such as Houston Ian, 87 Alcester Rd, Birmingham, B13 8EB.

Q.

In regards to the extensive flooding in 2012 in the Midlands, we are wondering if flood risk searches won't be exacting enough?

A.

Flood searches applied for by a Moseley lawyer should include the more informative search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.
