Shelfield's closest train station is Bloxwich at 2 miles. Shelfield's closest airport is Wolverhampton Business Airport Airport. Birmingham Airport is 15 miles and away.

Walsall Manor is the closest hospital.

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.

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.

Q.

Might our legal fees introduce any extra charges?

A.

No. We do not hide any extra, hidden costs for your legal work. While comparing quotes, be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

Will I need a home buyers survey?

A.

We heavily advise that Shelfield buyers book a RICS surveyor. Many problems can affect a property. These include cracks in walls. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

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.

Direct Line Mortgages is going to be our lender - what will we need to check?

A.

A small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act for many UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

What does the searches cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, subject to the searches your lender requires. Informative but less frequently ordered extra searches include a search of the Index Map.

Q.

Is lithium (Li) regularly found in Shelfield soil?

A.

Legislation exists to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as trichloroethylene and water contaminants such as petrol.
