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.

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.

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.

When should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Whether buying or selling, earlier is preferable, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may begin very early in the process. Promptly instructing a conveyancing firm for your Tipton transaction could mitigate the chance of your transaction falling through.

Q.

Do we need a property survey for our property we plan to buy?

A.

It is highly recommended that most Tipton buyers order a RICS survey if purchasing in Tipton. A wide range of problems can affect a property, including poor ventilation or cracked roof tiles, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

I am buying a barn conversion in Sutton cum Lound. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will remain liability-free for new owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Could Tipton soil be contaminated by copper (Cu)?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Tipton, soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Metal contamination of soil in Tipton is more likely to occur near disused factories or waste management sites. Data on other contaminants, like fertilisers and water contaminants such as bleach, will also be included in an environmental search.
