Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many sellers and buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many law firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement that sellers and buyers often do not check. Extra charges ought to be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will my Shelfield property solicitor in form me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band A house prior to completion?

A.

The conveyancer will approach the appropriate Walsall local authority to reveal the most up to date council tax charges which will subsequently be set out in the report on title. Correct rates for Shelfield are published online at the Walsall council website. At the time of writing, 15 July 2012, the rates are:

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

Q.

What sort of checks as respects the risk and history of floods at West Midlands will my property lawyer in Shelfield do?

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Shelfield?

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Oldbury has offered the property lawyer who they generally use. Should I instruct this solicitor?

A.

The agent may suggest a conveyancing solicitor, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately installed unbecoming roof aerials to the property in Shelfield which I think might infringe on local conservation area criteria

A.

Your instructed property lawyer will ascertain if the property is located within a conservation area and whether any alterations have the requisite consents.

Q.

I need to exchange contracts on the sale of a house quickly, are Homeward Legal fast Shelfield conveyancers ?

A.

Many property solicitors are slow which causes further concern to the home selling process.

Our conveyancing property lawyers will always attempt to communicate up the buyer and seller chain and that have invested in the very latest HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems to complete on the legal work in minimum time.

Q.

We are intending to buy a period property in the boundary of conservation area in Shelfield. How does one get information relating to the current state of repair?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have produced a detailed list in relation to the state of conservation areas in England as well as the risk of standards slipping. Local conservation areas are nominated by Walsall who maintain conservation area concerns from paths to the impediment of poorly maintained roads.
