I was referred a solicitor who has quoted £1200 for fixed fee conveyancing in Handsworth. I’m selling a purpose built detached home for £200,000. This appears overpriced. Is it in excess of the average fee for conveyancing in Handsworth?

The estimate does seem marginally overpriced. If you are content to spend time comparing costs you could reduce the fees slightly by say £125.

I am purchasing a house mortgage free in Handsworth. I have lived for the previous twelve years in Handsworth. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a home loan, then almost all of the Handsworth conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your solicitor will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he is duty bound to take that path of encouragement . Do bear in mind; if you are going to dispose of the house in the future, it will be of importance to your future purchaser what the searches disclose. There are plenty of instances where houses with day to day issues can still throw up adverse search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Handsworth will provide you some helpful advice here.

When can the exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Handsworth and am I required to attend the lawyers branch?

Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Handsworth you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide a national conveyancing service and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the sale agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Handsworth)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

We're in Handsworth, FTBs buying with a mortgage (lender is UBS , and our lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Handsworth?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Handsworth. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Handsworth is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Handsworth are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Handsworth you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Handsworth may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
