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.

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.

Do we need to be nervous about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a buyer's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property seller, selecting instead a second purchaser's offer. The risk of gazumping is present in any transaction. Instructing a proactive solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

How long will the legal work to sell a flat need? I need a fast service.

A.

The number of weeks required to transfer residential property is not wholly predictable. This is influenced by numerous factors, for example, if you plan to take out a mortgage. Our conveyancing solicitors work hard to ensure your move receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Q.

How is stamp duty rates calculated and what will we need to pay on a £771000 home?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax owed will depend on the home's value. Stamp duty will be £30840 on a £771000 house in Walsall.

Q.

Does my Walsall conveyancing solicitor report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band A building before completion?

A.

The lawyer will write to the appropriate Walsall local authority to reveal the current council tax charges which will then be detailed in the title report.
