Local data:

Drivers are well catered for with Rednal situated with good motorway access very close at approximately 2m of Junction 4 Northbound of the M5.

Longbridge station is almost a mile from Rednal and the closest airport to Rednal is Birmingham Airport. Coventry Airport is 23 miles, Wolverhampton Business Airport Airport is 14 miles and Defford Airport (disused) Airport is 22 miles away.

West Heath Kings Norton is the most convenient hospital for Rednal.

Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We need a fixed rate conveyancing estimate.

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the terms and conditions. Any fees included in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable.

Q.

We are using a lender based in Birmingham, and need to know which Rednal lenders you work with. Whose panels are your solicitors on?

A.

The Homeward Legal group are able to work with the bulk of lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Rednal, including Alvechurch Investments Ltd, 10 Bittell La, Barnt Green, Birmingham, B45 8NS. Your solicitor will be able to give more detail.

Q.

We have a home to purchase. How do we aim for a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that fast Rednal conveyancing is essential to instruct a proactive, diligent solicitor. When choosing a solicitor, you should ask the following: Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Was there a delay delivering a quote? Do they use email?

Q.

What property conveyancing searches should a property solicitor in Rednal carry out when instructed on a Rednal home?

A.

The normal legal procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search, Environmental and Limestone Search and perhaps special local Rednal searches for example Development reports.

Q.

We are buying on a Rednal brownfield site. Can the top-soil still be contaminated?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Rednal, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contaminants like sewage.

Q.

Would you recommend that we get a chancel liability search if I am purchasing by a church built in around the 1600s in Rednal?

A.

The result of a landmark case in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Rednal ecclesiastical properties include St Stephen the Martyr.

Q.

Which roads of Rednal are safeguarded by a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas conserve regions of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The advantages of these restrictions will include better maintained homes and gardens, but they can add to maintenance costs. Your property solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

What do we need to know if we buy a flat in a Birmingham local authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the due diligence for buyers involves carrying out searches of Birmingham council to see conservation area status and the required consent for changes. .
