Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Shenstone.

A.

Numerous firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are often hiding in the terms. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Your quote should also state applicable disbursements.Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

What will the Shenstone property solicitor recommend if the property I am buying is in a Lichfield local authority conservation area and turns out to have an un-consented roof aerials installed?

A.

The local authority searches carried out by a property lawyer during the conveyancing process will verify the existence of the appropriate authorisation for development to the building. If no appropriate consents be available, the solicitor will recommend the best alternatives, which include seeking an indemnity policy or getting retrospective consent from the planning authority.

Q.

When in the process is it wise to instruct a solicitor in Shenstone?

In simple terms, the earlier, the better, as the legal work can commence immediately. Some sources suggest waiting before instruction until a chain is completed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Should we opt for a conveyancing who works with by the local agent?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common way to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

How many weeks should I plan for the conveyancing process often take?

A.

The time required to transact residential property is not wholly predictable, based on a number of aspects. These may include matters where a property has a mortgage. With our solicitors, your sale, purchase or remortgage is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like manganese?

A.

There are regulations imposed to stop future soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like household chemicals, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

As a result of the widespread flooding last year in the Midlands I am apprehensive that flood searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

A competent conveyancing solicitor in Shenstone will carry out food risk searches if the first conveyancing searches establishes a Shenstone flood risk area data

It may be sensible to contact a future neighbour for additional extra local information.

Q.

How is SDLT worked out and how much do we need to budget for a £293000 house?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay will rely on the purchase price of the house or flat. It will be £8790 on a £293000 residential property.*
