Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £72,000 property? We need discount conveyancing.

A.

Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in small print. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Costs which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable and clear and be applicable if your lawyer must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Would you recommend that we get a chancel search when you are buying a Pelsall property near a 1400s 'church furlong'?

A.

Owners of property in a neighbourhood near an old church building may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Churches in the area include S.Michael and All Angels.

Q.

What causes conveyancing legal work to need such a long time?

A.

Conveyancing can be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and do our best to lessen the consequences of these delays, if it is possible to do so, by using fast search providers. Reasons for delay include waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

I am planning to buy in Pelsall. Are there many areas of conservation in the area?

With around 9,000 protected areas in England, the regions located near Pelsall will include several conservation areas. The advantages of these restrictions will include an increase in local property values, but they can make repairs more costly or time-consuming. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

Will the conveyancing solicitor in Pelsall report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band F property before completion?

A.

Your solicitor will speak to the Walsall local council to enquire about the most up to date council tax rates, which will then be written in the conveyancing report on title. Up-to-date charges for residents of Pelsall are set out in detail at the Walsall council site. At the time of writing (16 September 2012) rates are:

  • Band A - £1,021.00
  • Band B - £1,191.00
  • Band C - £1,362.00

  • Band E - £1,872.00
  • Band F - £2,213.00
  • Band G - £2,553.00
  • Band H - £3,064.00

Q.

What type of searches in respect to the risk and history of possible flooding in West Midlands will a conveyancing solicitor in Pelsall be able to apply for on an Edwardian maisonette I am hoping to buy?

A.

A qualified conveyancing solicitor will carry out standard conveyancing searches that should include Pelsall area flood risk information.
