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.

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.

We are intending to be moving out of our period property on the outskirts of Tipton into a home in Sutton Coldfield . What is the optimum stage to book a removals firm?

A.

Most lawyers usually recommend that sellers wait until after the contracts have exchanged because a moving date will not have been contractually agreed. For a local Birmingham and the Black Country company BGP Removals Ltd, 79 Great Bridge, Tipton, DY4 7HF Call: 0121 567 5539 or Manneh Shipment & Removals, 2 Wilday Close, Tipton, DY4 8GE Telephone: 0121 369 7248.

Q.

How could conveyancing work in Tipton seem to be so slow?

A.

The conveyancing process will sometimes endure stressful setbacks for many reasons. In some cases, the causes are out of a solicitor's hands, Homeward Legal, however, strive to minimise their consequences where possible.

Q.

What actual property conveyancing searches does my conveyancer in Tipton apply for a Tipton flat?

A.

Standard procedure will be to get these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environmental and Limestone Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches, which might include British Waterways Search.

Q.

My wife and I are buying in Tipton. Can I find out whether the property is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of architectural merit, such as country house estates, will be recognised as conservation areas. Conservation areas in Tipton include Factory Locks. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area and be able to advise further for conservation areas in Tipton.

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.
