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.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like paintings, pictures and mirrors?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are fixed to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are free-standing items, like lamps or lightshades. In order to avoid later issues, a fixtures and fittings form should be completed and will confirm what will be sold with the property.

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.

How can I uncover more information on the conservation areas in Rednal?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created details in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas in Rednal and throughout England along with the risk of standards slipping. Local Rednal conservation areas for instance street furniture, non sympathetic doors or neon signs are handled by Birmingham.

Q.

I am intending to buy a church rectory in Rempstone. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

How much can our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches does vary significantly, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Conveyancing searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and will be charged at cost.

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.

Conveyancing searches (environmental) may be fine but with recent events for example the major flooding last year in the Midlands are they sufficient to confirm enough about the Rednal flood risk area?

A.

A diligent conveyancer in Rednal will carry out detailed conveyancing and environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the first searches determine a significant risk local Rednal flood risk.
