Q.

I am trying to find a firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Selly Oak. How do we get a quote?

A.

Various solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. A quote for conveyancing in Selly Oak should list any disbursements.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Following recent news about the major flooding last year in the Midlands I am questioning whether property environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches handled by the property lawyer in Selly Oak will also include the more thorough flood search if it is felt necessary.

Why not get in touch with a neighbour to get additional local history if you are still worried.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Selly Oak?

A.

Selly Oak is located in Birmingham City Council, Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BB, Tel: 0121 303 1111

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £ 373k property, what should we ensure to speed up our conveyancing process?

A.

As is often reported, contacting a communicative property lawyer is essential to fast conveyancing. There are numerous tasks you can also do to speed up the process, including, requesting regular updates from your property lawyer and keep the pressure on, answering any queries raised by the property lawyer as soon as possible and organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Selly Oak identified?

A.

Residential property is contaminated by a broad range of environmental concerns, and factors such as nearby waste management facilities should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

Is there something we can do to avoid paying for SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal do not advise purchasers undertake any stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty amount may be due.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? We are buying a Selly Oak apartment close to a 15th Century glebe.

A.

Where land in Selly Oak was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of an old church building. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include St Mary.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing process to require months?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home can be delayed even where there is no chain. The reasons are on occasion unhappily beyond your solicitor's power. Homeward Legal endeavour to lessen the effect of these delays wherever possible. Delays may include slow solicitors acting for the other side.
