Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing?

A.

This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Any disbursements must also be stated on a quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Tipton checked when purchasing a house?

A.

Land in Tipton would be contaminated by a wide range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a plot of land may be affected by contaminants in the area including pollution incidents or other sources of contaminated land. Himley Wood Landfill, Crooked House Lane, West Midlands, DY3 4DA may be one source of local contamination.

Q.

Will the Tipton conveyancing solicitor request official or personal searches on my home purchase?

A.

The lawyer will advise as to the most appropriate route, depending on issues like building society requirements. For personal searches, your solicitor may look for a search agent such as iCompile Searches LTD, Castle Mill - 210 North, Dudley, West Midlands, DY4 7UF Tel: 0845 257 9750.

Q.

The owner has added PVC windows on the building which I think may contravene the St Andrews Dock conservation area rules.

A.

A property solicitor to see whether the property is affected by a conservation area and whether any alterations have the appropriate permissions.

In the event that no appropriate permissions be available your conveyancing solicitor will recommend the best alternative which can include seeking cover from an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective permission.

Q.

Should I use a lawyer referred by the local agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Ahli United Bank is going to be our mortgage lender - what will we need to be aware of?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, will act for all major lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

We are buying a 1930s flat in the middle of a Tipton conservation area. How does one find more details in respect of the state of upkeep of the area?

A.

English Heritage keep details in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to a worsening of the condition of the area. Conservation areas are designated by Dudley who administer things like paths to poorly maintained public spaces.

Q.

I am selling in Tipton, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. May there be any extra costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never charge any hidden fees for your standard conveyancing. Know that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.
