Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £388,000 home? I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate.

A.

Several conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees can increase the solicitor's invoice. Any costs found in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. A quote for conveyancing in Washwood Heath must also state any disbursements to be paid.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Do we need to get a survey for our property purchase?

A.

It is highly recommended that the majority of buyers order a survey. A range problems have a negative impact on a property, which include blocked drains, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Why can purchase conveyancing take such a long time? We had a rather slow firm the last time we moved.

A.

Conveyancing can be exposed to significant delays even where there is no chain. In some cases, the reasons are out of a lawyer's control, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to reduce their impact where feasible to do so by using fast search providers.

Q.

How is stamp duty assessed in Washwood Heath, what amount should we budget for a £485000 residential property?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the home's price. For a residential property sold for £485000, stamp duty will be £14550 (correct March 2013).

Q.

We are on a very tight budget - Will doing DIY conveyancing without the help of a Washwood Heath conveyancing solicitor save any money?

A.

Technically speaking there is no reason at all why a home mover should not undertake the legal process unaided. That said, a conveyancer handles a large number of roles from ranging from raising additional enquiries or identifying the most appropriate searches which really need a skilled professional.

Nevertheless solicitors firms are required to possess suitable insurance that ultimately protects you in the event of any carelessness.

Q.

When I am purchasing in Washwood Heath, will I need to get a chancel search?

A.

In Washwood Heath, some owners can be required to pay for maintenance of nearby church land. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings refer to which items?

A.

In general, there is not a strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. For many purchases, this is overlooked, making the completion and approval of a comprehensive fixtures and fittings form so important.

Q.

How many lenders in Washwood Heath do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have worked with the majority of lenders assisting Washwood Heath buyers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Mortgage Scene, 301-303 Chester Rd, Castle Bromwich, Birmingham, B36 0JG, Complete Mortgage Solutions UK Ltd, 65/Qube/14 Scotland St, Birmingham, B1 2EJ, and Afinancial, Quayside Tower/2 Broad St, Birmingham, B1 2HF.
