Conveyancing Solicitors In Kings Heath

Given its high street with an eclectic mix of shops, bars, bistros, and restaurants, whilst also retaining a ‘village feel’, it is unsurprising that Kings Heath is regularly voted on of the most popular places to live in Birmingham. Our conveyancing solicitors in Kings Heath are here to help with your next property move.


Located 5 miles south of the city centre and taking only 15 mins by car or bus to get into the city, the suburb of Kings Heath is a popular choice for Birmingham residents. The area now known as Kings Heath was originally unoccupied ancient woodland, waste land and common land until 18th century, when the ready supply of timber, flax and clay attracted people to the area. From here, trade, farms and eventually settlements grew around it. It then became part of the county of Worcestershire before eventually becoming incorporated in the City of Birmingham.

Notably looking back in History, J. R. R. Tolkien lived in Kings Heath for a time before moving to other parts of Birmingham. It is widely thought that many of the ideas for Lord of Rings and Middle Earth came from his time in Kings Heath, Birmingham and surrounding area. Today, residents or ‘Heathens’ refer to the area as a village and as a result a village square has been created around All Saints Church as a nod to this notion. It is this village square which features a popular monthly farmers market.

For families and those looking for some open space, Kings Heath is home to two large parks. Highbury Park once formed part of the Grade II listed home, Highbury Hall, which was built for Joseph Chamberlain, the father of the Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain who served between 1937 and 1940. The park also is home to Highbury Orchard, which is community project growing fruit, vegetables and even has its own resident bees. The second is Kings Heath Park which covers 35 acres of urban parkland with playgrounds, gardens, tennis courts and a bowling green. The park also has its own tearoom serving refreshments to visitors.

With average house prices in Kings Heath, at the time of writing, being a little over £250,000, there are many options for people looking to live in the area. There is a mixture of flats and terraced housing for first time buyers to larger semi-detached and detached houses suitable for growing families.

Conveyancing Solicitors In Kings Heath Express Conveyancing


Named Conveyancer

On instruction, all our clients are given a named conveyancer. You will have full contact details for the conveyancer and will be communicating with them directly throughout the course of your transaction. This means you get the most direct advice and can discuss any issues presented during your transaction with the person best placed to help you.

Case Manager

All clients will also be given a Case Manager from Express. The Case Manager’s role is to support you and your Case Manager and act as point of escalation should you need it. Over the years, we have developed good working relationships with all of our panel firms and work in a way which compliments rather than hinders the conveyancing process

Access to our Portal

All clients will be given access to our online case management portal which can be used to track the progress of your transaction. You can also request updates, contact us and upload documents to the portal

Transparent Fee Structure

We operate transparency on fees. All clients are given an itemised quotation at the point of contacting Express Conveyancing. We also take the time to discuss your transaction to check for anything non-standard which may attract additional fees at the start before instruction. This quote is fixed, so long as the mechanics of the transaction remain unchanged from the initial quote. If any additional work is required that wasn’t known about at the start of a transaction then it would be discussed and agreed with you first before any additional charges are applied.

It is important to bear in mind that if you are purchasing a leasehold, there may be notice, service charge apportionment and management company fees to pay but this will only be known as the transaction progresses especially as it varies from property to property.

No completion, no fee

All our clients get the benefit of their first transaction being handled on a no completion, no fee basis, minus any third-party disbursements. This is regardless of the reason your transaction falls through.

For completeness, a second transaction would not be handled on a no completion, no fee basis and you may be required to pay for any work completed so far should this also fall through

Mortgage lender

One of the biggest concerns for our clients and some of the questions we get asked most frequently are can Express Conveyancing act for my chosen mortgage lender? Is Express Conveyancing on all lender panels? What happens if my mortgage lender changes throughout the course of the transaction? Well, the short answer is yes, we can act. Our panel structure means that across all of our law firms, we cover the vast majority of mortgage lenders. We can also accommodate a change in mortgage lender throughout the course of a transaction.
