Q.

I am looking for a discount conveyancing estimate. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs may be added into the terms. The disbursements to be paid ought to be defined on your conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What type of local conveyancing searches in respect to the uncertain risk of local flooding in Birmingham and the Black Country will a conveyancer in Shirley be able to do for an Edwardian house I am hoping to buy?

A.

A solicitor will carry out official property conveyancing searches that incorporate Shirley historical flood risk data.

Q.

How is Shirley contaminated land checked?

A.

Residential property in Shirley would be contaminated by several natural causes, such as infilled land or existing and proposed overhead electricity cables. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

If I am purchasing near Shirley, in the parish of Colwick, do we need a chancel search?

The conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In older areas of Shirley, chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What searches should the Shirley conveyancer carry out when instructed on a Shirley home?

A.

The routine procedure is to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Limestone Search as well as any specific local Shirley searches for instance Index Map Search.

Q.

Of major Shirley lenders, who have joined your panel?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership work with the majority of lenders serving Shirley purchasers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Shirley include Coventry Building Society, 261 Stratford Rd, Shirley, Solihull, B90 3AL, Complete Financial Solutions Ltd, Second Floor /Westminister House/Stratford Rd, Shirley, Solihull, B90 3AQ, and Oak Tree Mortgages, 372 Stratford Rd, Shirley, Solihull, B90 4AQ. The solicitor handling your conveyancing transaction will be able to provide more information.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey required when buying any property in Shirley?

A.

We recommend that you book a home buyer survey. There are a range of defects that will impact a property, such as severe weathering and rotten roof timbers, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

When my partner and I are purchasing a house close by a vicarage in Shirley, will you need a chancel search?

A.

Owners of property near to nearby church land may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Shirley Church of England properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St Mary Magdalene, St Michael, St Mary Magdalene and St James the Great.
