Conveyancing in Wolverhampton Q & A

If you are selling, buying or remortgaging a property in Wolverhampton, you will need to choose a solicitor to handle the conveyancing work.

Our panel of solicitors has many years’ experience of conveyancing in Wolverhampton, and throughout Birmingham and the Black Country. Our highly proactive approach means we often move you in the shortest possible time.

How can we find a cheap solicitor in Wolverhampton to purchase a leasehold home?

Many buyers who opt for a cheap quote are regularly hit by hidden costs later in the conveyancing process. Several solicitors claim to provide ‘the cheapest conveyancing’, but extra charges are often hidden in the terms of engagement, which are not transparent to busy buyers. Such charges in the terms and conditions should be clear and fair. At Homeward Legal, we provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all of the fees for a standard conveyancing. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for a fixed-fee price. With Homeward Legal, you are covered by our ‘No Move, No Fee’ guarantee. Or give us a call on 0800 038 6699.

Should we be worried about ‘fixtures and fittings’ when selling our new Wolverhampton home?

This issue is often not considered, making it essential that the list of fixtures (generally fixed items such as wall light switches) and fittings (generally free-standing items) to be sold or bought with the Wolverhampton property is agreed early. Talk to your appointed lawyer or call Homeward Legal to get advice from our property experts.

We are expecting to move out of our detached building in Wolverhampton into a bigger property in Willenhall. When is the best time to choose a removal company?

Your solicitor would usually advise home vendors to wait to appoint movers until after exchange of contracts. Prior to this, a move date generally won’t have been agreed. Local Wolverhampton firms include:

  • A2B Removals, 46 Farndale Avenue, Wolverhampton, WV6 0TE (Tel: 07817 842980)
  • Burke Bros Moving Group, Burke Bros Trading Estate, Fox’s Lane, Wolverhampton, WV1 1PA (Tel: 01902 714555)

I want to buy a seventies property in Wolverhampton. What kind of searches for the risk of floods in Birmingham and the Black Country will a Wolverhampton lawyer apply for?

Your residential property conveyancing solicitor conducts environmental searches, which cover the risk of flooding in Wolverhampton and the impact of the risk from neighbouring Birmingham and the rest of the Black Country.

I want to buy a Wolverhampton property at auction. Can your solicitor team complete quick conveyancing in such circumstances?

Yes. Our Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) solicitors often do the legal work for auction buyers and sellers. Our team of auction conveyancing solicitors have worked for clients at national and local property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London. Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions, and Drivers Norris. Astute buyers at auction appoint their lawyer as soon as possible for a detailed review of the legal documents connected to the chosen property well in advance of the auction day. It is a legal requirement for all work to be completed within 4 weeks of the auction. The lawyer will conclude all legal work for the Wolverhampton property bought at auction within that timeframe.

How much will searches in Wolverhampton generally cost?

Searches range in cost, subject to the type that have been ordered. They are charged at cost and itemized in the quote provided by Homeward Legal.

A sudden change in circumstances requires exchange of contracts on our co-owned leasehold apartment in a short timeframe. Do Homeward Legal employ fast Wolverhampton conveyancing solicitors?

Frankly, many solicitors are very slow-moving, which adds more frustration to the buying or selling process. Homeward Legal always works with solicitors who communicate efficiently through the whole property chain (the sequence of buyers and sellers). Homeward Legal’s conveyancers also employ the best automated practice management systems that minimise the time taken to exchange on the sale of your property.

Apparently, selenium (Se) soil contamination may be an issue in Wolverhampton. Can you advise on the position?

Most soils in Wolverhampton have some degree of contamination from industry, agriculture, and the natural environment. Data on contaminants (e.g. trichloroethylene) will be included in the results of an environmental search.
