Like other parts of Birmingham, Yardley is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Gyrdleah and was originally part of the county of Worcestershire. Ancient buildings within the town still bare the markings of the Worcester Coat of Arms, being the “three pears motif”. Yardley is located to the east of the centre of Birmingham and is equidistant between Birmingham city centre and Solihull, with excellent transport links for all.
Interestingly, a small area in Yardley, known as Old Yardley was the first place in Birmingham to be awarded a conservation status. Old Yardley still retains much of its rural village charm today, centred around St Edburgha’s church.
Yardley itself has five primary schools and two secondary schools for local residents along with a good mixture of housing stock. There is a large shopping centre and all the cafes, bars and restaurants a family could need.
Hall Green is approximately 6 miles from central Birmingham. It is covered by the B28 postcode. The popular suburbs of Acocks Green and Kineton Green all share a border with Hall Green.
The area itself was historically part of the county of Worcestershire and its residential stock is dominated by homes built in the 1920s and 1930s between the two World Wars. These good sized family homes are often found on tree-lined avenues, with good sized rooms and gardens for a growing family. There are many good schools in the neighbourhood such as Chilcote Primary School, St Ambrose Barlow Catholic Primary School and Hall Green Secondary School, to name a few.
For those looking for a slice of countryside in their urban lives, the area is home to Shire Country Park and Sarehole Mill, a historic water mill. This park is home to many species of birds, otters and the rarer protected water voles. The historic village of Sarehole is the location of the childhood home of J. R. R. Tolkien and is said to have formed much of the inspiration for “The Shire”, the infamous home of his character The Hobbit and also much of his Lord of the Rings series.
SELL WITH EXPRESS CONVEYANCING
If you are looking to sell your home, or an investment property, we are on hand to help you.
With sales, our conveyancing team will gather all the necessary information from you as the owner of the property. We will ask a series of questions and request any supporting documentation. Once provided and title documents obtained from the Land Registry, a contract pack will be drafted and sent across to your buyer’s conveyancer. We will then await enquiries or questions from the purchasing side and will then answer those questions. If we require any more information from you in order to answer those questions, the conveyancers will guide you through this. Once all replies are satisfied, completion dates will be agreed and contracts will be exchanged. Any finance will be dealt with and completion will happen, and keys released.
BUY WITH EXPRESS CONVEYANCING
If you are looking to buy a home, a second home, or investment property, we also have specialist teams ready to help you.
When it comes to purchases, like with a sale, our conveyancing team will need to gather information about you, the property you are purchasing, and how you will be financing the purchase. Once all checks are completed and contract documents received from the seller’s solicitor, your conveyancer will commission property searches and review the title. Once the title is reviewed, your conveyancer will raise legal enquiries about the title and any practical aspects of the property you require. The seller and their solicitor will need to supply responses. Once your conveyancer is happy with the title and satisfied the requirements of any lender (if you are purchasing with a mortgage or bridging loan), they will then agree dates, exchange contracts. The next step will be to request and receive funds, complete the transaction and deal with post completion formalities at the Land Registry.
We have experience of handling freehold, leasehold, new build, affordable housing schemes, Help to Buy and First Home Schemes, auction properties, commercial, and land transactions.
