How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?


Many online and high street property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees may be added into the small print. Extra costs which are listed in the terms should be fair and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Can you confirm how we avoid paying stamp duty to the Revenue?


Stamp duty is due on property purchases priced at over £125,000. We firmly advise against any stamp duty avoidance. Such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties.


Do I need to employ the lawyer that often works with by our estate agent?


If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you the agent can exert pressure on your behalf, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.
