How do we do this? By taking away the overheads these firms have in marketing their services themselves.

Express Conveyancing Solicitors in Birmingham sits as the extended client care services arm for all these firms. This means that unlike instructing via other price comparison tools found elsewhere on the internet, rather than generating a lead and selling it to the highest bidder, we will be dealing with you personally from the moment you obtain your quote through to completion.

Why Choose A Property Solicitor in Birmingham With Express Conveyancing?

Image

Moving house is an exciting time but there is a lot to do and sometimes it can be puzzling where to start. Some preparation in readiness can make all the difference to get matters progressing right away.

Irrespective of which Property Solicitor in Birmingham you choose to instruct, they will require a number of standard documents such as certified Identification Documents, Proof of Address and in case you are purchasing, evidence of proof of funds.

If you are a seller, you will also have to supply documentary evidence of all work carried out at the property (sometimes even prior to you having owned the property) such as gas safety certificates, cavity wall insulation guarantees etc.

The seller will also have to supply details in relation to the property by completing several Law Society approved, standard forms (Form TA6 and TA10, and in the case of a Leasehold property, a Form TA7). These forms are very comprehensive and designed with the purpose of avoiding unnecessary questions being raised by the purchaser, later into the transaction.

Once an offer has been accepted, the seller's conveyancing solicitor will only be able to issue contracts to the buyer's property solicitors once the above forms have been returned and the sellers identity has been verified.

Instructing a Property Solicitor in Birmingham with Express Conveyancing, prior to your offer being accepted means that a file can be setup straight away and these forms sent out to you in anticipation of a buyers offer, thus enabling your conveyancer to issue contracts to them as soon your buyers solicitor details are known.

Historically, having these documents ready will easily save around 11 working days of your entire conveyancing transaction!

Frequently Asked Questions When It Comes to Conveyancing in Birmingham

What is the population density of Birmingham?

As confirmed by the 2011 census, the population of Birmingham 1,904,658 spread over an area of 129,635 hectares (320,335 acres) meaning a density of population of 14.7 people per hectare or 5.9 per acre.

What to look out for when you are looking for a Conveyancing Solicitor in Birmingham?

Various firms offer ‘the cheapest conveyancing’, but extra costs can soon add up. These costs are usually disguised as ‘Administration Costs’.

As per the requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority, any extra charges included in the terms should be clearly defined, and these should be explained by your solicitor.

Unfortunately, however, since completion statements and bills are only supplied at the end of the transaction; for most clients it is now too late to dispute the bill since you would have already entered into a contractual agreement backed by a long list of additional fees hidden within their Terms of Business.

With Express Conveyancing, the Fees you are quoted at the onset of the transaction will remain as is; so long as your instruction remain the same (i.e. you have obtained a quote for a freehold property purchase when it is in fact a leasehold.

We have requested a quote from you. Will I be billed any extra costs when the move completes?

No Express Conveyancing never charge any additional fees than what you have been quoted.

However, you need to keep in mind that, if you are purchasing a leasehold property for example, there may be certain clauses within the lease burdening the property, which gives the freeholder’s or other parties, certain benefits of transfer costs in the form of Notice fees which will only be revealed towards the later part of the transaction.

These are unforeseen disbursements which your Conveyancing Solicitor or Property Lawyer will make you aware of as soon as these have been supplied to them by the sellers solicitors. Your legal fees will however remain the same.

There are two or more parties interested in purchasing the same property as us. How can we protect our self against being gazumped?

Gazumping arises when a house seller accepts the first purchaser’s offer and then dismisses it, opting for a second purchaser’s offer (generally a higher one).

This may happen weeks into a transaction. Since accepting an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is always the risk of gazumping. You should instruct a property lawyer or conveyancing solicitor who will act with speed.

Excellent! Very responsive, and really helped to push the purchase.
