Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees may be added into the small print. Any extra charges found in the solicitor's terms should be fair. They only apply in cases where the solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The quote must also state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' actually mean?

A.

This is widespread across England and Wales and arises when a seller accepts an offer and then refuses it in favour of a better offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of gazumping. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor as early as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

Do I need to get a surveying expert to inspect this home purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly advise that property purchasers book a building survey when buying in Small Heath. Buyers

should be aware that there are a wide range of concerns which have a negative impact on a property, for example wet rot. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

We want to find fast Small Heath conveyancers, is that your solicitors?

A.

A lot of Small Heath solicitors practices are slow moving which can cause further annoyance to the house moving process. We have implemented modern conveyancing case management systems . We also give clients a dedicated property lawyer who will go the extra mile to exert pressure with all parties in the chain for example other sellers agents, to bring about a fast sale

Q.

We are intending to purchase a residence in East Bridgford. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Small Heath parish you are buying in, a Small Heath conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Through some parish councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Will the property's form for fixtures and fittings include items such as bookcases?

A.

Usually, there is no legal definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.

Q.

May our conveyancing charges in Small Heath introduce any extra charges?

A.

We never hide any hidden costs.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Small Heath?

A.

Small Heath is located in Bromsgrove District Council, The Council House, Burcot Lane, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B60 1AA, Call: 01527 881 288
