Questions & Answers

Q. My local solicitor in Birmingham has quoted me £1,000 for a conveyancing purchase transaction. Can I save my hard earned cash by avoiding appointing a online lawyer?
A. The cost of the conveyancing is affected by numerous factors. Various disbursements (such as the land registry fee and SDLT) are calculated on a sliding scale of rates, based on the purchase price of your property. The legal fee will also be affected by this. Your best option is to compare a range of quotations from different solicitors, and read reviews left by other clients on their performance. Only then can you decide who is offering the best service at the best price.
Q. I want to get my flat in Birmingham. Is there much difference in the nature of the legal work to be done when purchasing a flat as opposed to a house?
A. Flats are generally "Leasehold" - that is, someone else owns the land on which the flats are built. There is also the issue of shared spaces, such as hallways. This means that there is more work for the solicitor to do, as the transactions are more complicated.
Q. I'm buying a flat in Birmingham for my nephew to attend vetinary college next year. I expect to pay around £145,000. Will I have to pay stamp duty?
A. Unless the flat is excluded for a reason (such as objective one status) you must pay stamp duty, (SDLT) on any purchase value above £125,000. SDLT is payable in bands. Visit https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/rates-and-allowances-stamp-duty-land-tax/stamp-duty-land-tax-rates for the details.
Q. I've moved to Birmingham to be near my boyfriend. How do I decide upon a solicitor to conduct my conveyancing when I find the right home.?
A. You could drive up the High-Street and look for a local solicitor; search in Google maps or find one in the Thompson Directory. However, using the w w web could be best. The internet brings two main positives to you. (1) You will probably receive a much better price by shopping around and comparing quotes. (2) You can read reviews to establish who is going to do the best work for you. It is the balance between price and quality that should look for.
Q. Can I pay for a house with cash?
A. No. There are money laundering regulations that solicitors and estate agents have to abide by. Payments must be actioned through UK banks and building societies only. Monies provided through other sources would have to be reported to an Organised Crime body of the police.
Q. What is the Land Registry charge?
A. The is the charge that is payable to the Land Registry of England and Wales for recoding the registration of your plot of land.
Q. I've received and accepted an offer on my property. My buyer is awaiting a mortgage offer before they can proceed. What does this mean?
A. Ideally your purchaser should have agreed a mortgage in principle from a lender before they'd started looking for a house. This would have confirmed how much money they can get to fund their purchase. The application process would immediately assess whether the lender can provide the money based upon the criteria they prescribe and an 'Offer in Principle' in the form of a letter is normally issued. Sometimes monies may not be made available even though the loan criteria have been met because the lenders quota for the period may have been exhausted.
Q. What do I do first... The conveyancing or the survey?
A. Get the survey done first. The results may be bad enough that your surveyor can advise you not to proceed or otherwise, in which case you would have instructed your legal adviser prematurely.
Q. There may be a new Greenfield development project happening in Birmingham. What is a Greenfield site?
A. The term Greenfield as applied to land or a site describes undeveloped land in a city which may be land that has been used for agriculture or it could just be country land. This could be an existing open field, or a place that is usually restricted to the masses. Generally it can be determined that a Greenfield site is the opposite to a Brownfield site.
Q. I want to buy a property in Birmingham. I've placed an offer through a agent and it was accepted so I've asked a surveyor to conduct a survey of the property but my estate agent has informed me that I've been gazumped. What does this mean?
A. This means that somebody else has made a higher offer than you which has been accepted by the seller. It's a naughty practice but not illegal, just a bit unfair. The agent has a duty to convey all offers to the owner and as long as sale contracts have not been exchanged you can't sue for any breach as a formal contract has not been formed yet.

Initially a very poor start when the client called to ask a question and pay up front fees on account to be spoken to very rudely by an office administrator. Conveyancer Amy Keeling had not been involved at this stage. I had to 'rescue' the situation, having recommended GC, it was very embarrassing. This client was vulnerable I would say, and had some other connections to solicitors that she chose not to use and was at this point questioning my recommendation. Thank goodness that Amy was made aware - and from that point onward was fantastic and made a real big effort to ensure the service was 100% - which helped repair the earlier damage. A case that needed some help from me to get the lender to drop certain requirements, Amy was very helpful as we worked together on occasions. With Amy's work the case probably went though to completion quicker than it otherwise may have done - not saying we want that bad start gain - but the client appreciates the effort to make things right and was I think very pleased with the work. Thank you Amy.

I couldn't be happier with Katie Fennelly and her team at APL. I was always kept up to date as soon as there was information to be had, and although my case took a LONG time, (not necessarily my solicitors fault anyway), Katie always kept me informed of the latest in the matter, even if it was a "we are still waiting for the other party's solicitors responses" message. Katie was extremely thorough, even going as far as spotting a nasty flaw with the purchase that required extra insurance protection which the seller agreed to pay for. Everything is super easy with the online portal where you get all your documents, and you always get a quick response if you correspond over email. Phone calls were a bit more difficult at times, I could struggle to get through for extended periods of time, but that's understandable considering I'm not the sole client (hopefully) in her roster. Were I to send an email however, the response was always prompt. As a first time buyer, I required a fair amount of hand-holding, which was never a problem. I never were made to feel stupid for asking questions which may have been obvious to some. All in all, I am very very happy with my transaction with APL.
