We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Berkshire. What should we check?


Various law firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


We are buying in Berkshire, and need to know if there are any conservation areas.


There are a number of conservation areas located near Berkshire. Colnbrook, Slough St Bernard's School and Slough St Mary's Church are among the conservation areas in Berkshire. The local authority will be able to offer more information about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


When do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Berkshire?

Whether you are buying or selling in Berkshire, the earlier, the better, as there are a number of tasks that may be performed very early in the process. A number of sources suggest holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.


The vendor has unfortunately installed PVC windows on the property which may break the Alston conservation area criteria.


Your property lawyer is required to find out if the property is within a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have essential consents.


I have taken out a quote from you. May we end up paying any hidden charges when the transaction completes?


No. Homeward Legal will not charge any additional costs for any reason. A Homeward Legal conveyancing quote is an honest and accurate price the legal costs for your transaction.


How does the property solicitor in Berkshire advise us on the potential risk of a flood around Berkshire?


A key part of the legal due diligence procedure of purchasing a property involves your conveyancer conducting environmental searches that provide specific information on the subject of Berkshire historical flood risk.


What specific search enquiries should my Berkshire lawyer conduct when carrying out the conveyancing for a Berkshire property?


The regular conveyancing protocol is to obtain the following Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search and occasionally area-specific searches e.g. a SIM.


Please suggest how to hold off paying stamp duty?


SDLT is generally due on houses sold for over £125,000. We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable.
