There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Kings Norton but how do I know who I should use?
It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Kings Norton conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Kings Norton I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Kings Norton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the property agent informed us that the owners will only proceed if we use the agent's recommended lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Kings Norton
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this demand. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Kings Norton conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by HQ.

Kings Norton Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Questions you should consider before buying
Is the freehold owned jointly by the tenants? You will want to find out as much as possible about the company managing the building as they will impact your use and enjoyment of the property. Being a leasehold owner you will be in the clutches of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to practical issues such as the upkeep of the common parts. Ask other tenants whether they are happy with their management. In conclusion, investigate as to the dates that the service charges are due to the relevant party and precisely how they are spending that money. If a Kings Norton lease has fewer than 80 years it will impact the marketability of the apartment. Check with your lender that they are willing to go ahead with the loan given the lease term.

Remember, in most cases you will be required to have been the owner of the residence for two years in order to be entitled to extend the lease.
