Q.

We need affordable conveyancing in Walsall. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter affects many sellers and buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees are often hiding in the small print. Any extra charges included in terms of engagement needs to be fair and reasonable. They only apply in cases where the solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Which environmental factors can contaminate land in Walsall, and are they thoroughly investigated?

A.

Land is contaminated by several natural causes and human activities, such as landfill sites and a proximate telecommunications base station. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like tables?

A.

There is not a legal definition of fixtures and fittings, resulting in considerable confusion once the buyer moves in and some items are missing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

In a few months we are anticipating to be moving out of our detached home near Walsall to a property in Tipton at what stage to book a home removal company?

A.

Our recommendation is for buyers to wait before agreeing a removal van until such time as everyone has set an absolute move date that occurs once exchange of contracts. If you are looking for a local company try SAS Removal Services, 119 Proffitt St, Walsall, WS2 8BB Call: 07532 492303 or K M Builders, 38 Jessel Rd, Walsall, WS2 8QX Telephone: 07790 004930.

Q.

Are there services who remediate contaminated soil in Walsall?

A.

If land has been contaminated by previous industrial use, remediation can often be possible, but it can be costly. Speak to First Choice Turf & Gardens, 46 Alexandra Rd, Walsall, WS1 4DX for more detail.

Q.

I am purchasing a property in Walsall, and would like to find out if there are many conservation areas.

A.

Locales deemed to be of 'special architectural and historic interest', such as 19th century suburbs, will be registered as areas of conservation. Bradford Street, Bridge Street and Willenhall are among the conservation areas in Walsall. The benefits of such restrictions will include an increase in local property values, but they can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes.

Q.

In regards to the major flooding last year in the Midlands, we are concerned that flood searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches applied for by a conveyancer in Walsall will include a more detailed search (Landmark) if required.

It is not uncommon for buyers to speak to a next door neighbour for additional added local information or nearby Birmingham and the Black Country flood damage builder, like Rainbow International Ltd, Cedar Ho/Anglian Rd, Walsall, WS9 8EP Tel: 01922 745100.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Benllech has offered the solicitors firm whom they usually use. Will it be easier to instruct them?

A.

The agent can influence a solicitor they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore to move the conveyancing process along, however, these referrals need to be considered carefully, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
