Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £783,000 residence?

A.

Several conveyancers claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding in 2012 in the Midlands I am worried that property environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Property environmental searches conducted by a solicitor in Willenhall should include the more thorough Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

It may be prudent to also get in touch with a next door neighbour to get more comfort.

Q.

I am purchasing a £235000 Willenhall residential property. What will be calculated for stamp duty rates?

A.

The Stamp Duty that will be due will depend on the home's price. For a Willenhall home valued at £235000, stamp duty is £2350.

Q.

What are Willenhall property searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are standard enquiries ordered by the purchaser's property solicitor, such as a drainage search, and cover solely facets affecting the legal title.

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel search if we are purchasing in Willenhall on the same road as a church built in the 17th Century?

A.

There are fifteen thousand ecclesiastical parishes throughout the UK. Property owners within some of these may be required to fund the repair of a local church. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your conveyancing lawyer can provide more details. Willenhall churches where chancel liability may apply include S.Anne, S.Giles, S.Stephen and Short Heath Holy Trinity.

Q.

Does the Willenhall property solicitor tell me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band F house prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

Your lawyer will liaise with the council to ascertain the currently applicable council tax charges which should then be detailed in the title report. Up-to-date rates for residents of Willenhall are published on the Walsall council site. As at (20 August 2012) band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,021.00
  • Band B - £1,191.00
  • Band C - £1,362.00
  • Band D - £1,532.00
  • Band E - £1,872.00
  • Band F - £2,213.00
  • Band G - £2,553.00
  • Band H - £3,064.00

Q.

How long does the legal work to transfer a home require? I am buying in Willenhall.

A.

The number of weeks taken to transfer a home does vary, based on potentially many concerns including if it is a leasehold property being transferred. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, whereas our solicitors work towards four to six weeks, wherever possible.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

The practice of choosing to reject the first offer post-acceptance when a better offer is made by a second buyer is called gazumping. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a law firm early.
