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.

Is a property survey necessary when purchasing a home?

A.

It is recommended that you book a building survey. There can be many defects that will impact a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover, including poor ventilation.

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.

What makes conveyancing legal work to take months to complete?

A.

Conveyancing could potentially be delayed. Homeward Legal know how much extra stress these can cause and do our best to curtail their cost wherever feasible by chasing for prompt responses.

Q.

What can fees for our searches be?

A.

The cost of searches for a West Bromwich purchase will vary. Searches are paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

My husband and I are purchasing in West Bromwich, and need to know if there are any designated conservation areas.

A.

Conservation areas detail local areas registered as being of architectural or historic interest. High Street Black Country and West Bromwich High Street are among the conservation areas in West Bromwich. Your solicitor will provide more details.

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing a flat conversion by a 17th Century rectory in West Bromwich.

A.

The outcome of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Church of England properties in the area where a chancel search may be necessary include The Ecumenical Parish of St. Andrew, Carters Green, All Saints, Holy Trinity and Network Church.

Q.

What searches will my conveyancing solicitor in West Bromwich carry out when instructed on a West Bromwich house?

A.

The conventional conveyancing protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage Search, Environment Search and Limestone Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches for example Commons Search.
