How long on average should it take my designated conveyancing solicitor to handle all of the legal process for the lower floor of property in Bickley?


It can take anywhere between around a month and 12 weeks dependent on any number of things for example the speed of the sellers solicitor, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries. Homeward Legal's lawyers are exceptionally results-focused completing in as short a time as possible.


New Life Mortgages is our lender - what will I need to check?


Traditionally, most conveyancing solicitors were able to undertake legal work for a lender. Recently, a number of lenders

have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for home buyers. We, however, will act on behalf of many CML-approved lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Should we get a chancel search when we are buying a Bickley home near a 1500s 'church furlong'?


In Bickley, some owners can be required to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of church property in the locality. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out.
