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.

How is contaminated land in Moseley identified when purchasing?

A.

Residential property in Moseley is contaminated by a range of natural causes and human activities, and an environmental search should reveal whether a plot of land could be affected by contaminants like other land contamination.

We are going to buy a sixties house in a designated conservation areas. How do I locate more details in relation to the standard of upkeep?

Conservation areas are set up by the local Birmingham planning authority, who administer conservation area concerns from private spaces to the policing of street clutter. Following a campaign, English Heritage have created records of the state of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a period detached property in Moseley?

A.

In general, the conveyancer's title report should contain the appropriate Birmingham council tax band. Council tax rates for properties in Moseley are tabled online at the Birmingham local authority site. At the time of authoring (24/01/2013) the different rates are:

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.

You can always contact a neighbour or local resident to gain further local history.

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.

What will my searches usually cost?

A.

The cost of searches significantly varies. In Moseley, the standard bundle of searches included a local authority search and a mining search.
