Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a £592k property?

A.

Many conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Your West Bromwich conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What type of conveyancing searches in relation to the uncertain risk of local flooding at Birmingham and the Black Country will the West Bromwich property solicitor actually conduct?

A.

Your solicitor makes an application for official property environmental searches that will include West Bromwich flood risk area data information.

Q.

Having heard about the major flooding in 2012 in the Midlands, we are apprehensive that conveyancing searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by your lawyer in West Bromwich will include the more in depth flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

You could also try to also speak to a future neighbour for some further comfort if you are still worried.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal able to act quickly on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in West Bromwich?

A.

Homeward Legal frequently get instructed by buyers and sellers at auction. Our specialist solicitors and licensed conveyancers have been instructed by numerous buyers and sellers at regional property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Shrewd buyers at auction will appoint a good conveyancing firm as fast as they can to allow time for a review of the legal papers for the lot in advance of the auction day. Subsequently, immediately after the property auction, your lawyer needs to be focused on complete all of the legal work inside 28 days as conventionally required by the terms of sale.

Q.

How is West Bromwich contaminated land investigated during the house-buying process?

A.

Residential property can be contaminated by several environmental factors. Contaminants like waste treatment sites in the area should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

Our estate agent in Holyhead has named a property lawyer. Is it advisable to instruct them?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon way to find a solicitor. These referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties terraced house in West Bromwich?
