I am looking for affordable conveyancing. and what is included?


Several firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges will be included in the terms. Any extra fees which are listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and be applicable if the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


We must to complete on the legal work on our home in under 30 days, are you fast property lawyers in Bolton ?


Homeward Legal adopts a highly active approach to carrying out conveyancing work for clients to meet the sellers requirements.

The utilisation of cutting edge integrated systems .

We assign clients a SRA property lawyer who will communicate with all parties in the buyer and seller chain such as other buyers and sellers, for a fast exchange.


What length of time should I expect it to take my lawyer to handle all of the conveyancing work on the lower floor of property we are purchasing?


Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between 3 weeks and three months, which can depend on a number of issues such as the efficiency of the vendor's solicitor, or the number of people in the

chain. Our chosen property solicitors are exceptionally focused on communication completing the process as speedily as we possibly can.


What causes Bolton sale conveyancing to need such a long time?


The conveyancing process will sometimes take more time even in ideal circumstances. Some causes are out of the solicitor's hands. We endeavour to reduce their impact whenever it is feasible by pushing all parties involved. Reasons for delay can include a slow firm acting for the lender.


I am intending to buy a 1960's property. Is it that necessary that 'conveyancing searches' are undertaken?


These searches are a standardised set of enquiries performed on your behalf, for example a gypsum search, and only deal with the legal aspects of the purchase.


Is Homeward Legal experienced enough to act quickly on property auction conveyancing in Bolton?


Yes - Our recommended conveyancing solicitors do frequently carry out work for sellers at auction. Solicitors usually suggest bidders to formally instruct a residential conveyancing solicitor well in advance of the auction day to allow adequate time for a review of the sellers legal pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day your selected lawyer is fully focused on completing the legal work within 4 weeks as required .


The vendor looks to have installed satellite dishes on the maisonette which I think might possibly contravene the Horwich Locomotive Works conservation area guidelines.


The property lawyer is required to ascertain if the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have necessary consent. If no local authority consents can be provided the solicitor will recommend the options which can include getting covered by an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective approval from the council.


Flood searches are conveyancing protocol but with recent climactic events e g the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they sufficient to determine sufficient information about the Bolton flood risk area?


Property environmental searches carried out by a Bolton property lawyer will also include the more informative flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are still concerned you could contact a local resident or local Greater Manchester flooding repair expert like Height Vail, Unit 1 Spa Rd Ind Est/Spa Rd, Bolton, BL1 4SS Tel: 01204 523772.
