We are trying to find an affordable Canning Town conveyancing quote. What do I need to check for?


Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges can increase the solicitor's invoice. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


I am going to buy with Natwest, what do I need to know?


Purchasers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for buyers if their preferred solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of the majority of lenders, ensuring that an additional preferred solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.


Do you work with many lenders with Canning Town offices?


Our solicitors have experience working with many lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Canning Town, like De Havilland Group Ltd, 2 Skylines Village/Limeharbour, London, E14 9TS, Mortgage Direct Ltd, 44-50 Royal Pde Mews, London, SE3 0TN, and Shanco Services Ltd, 653A Romford Rd, London, E12 5AD.


Does conduct the conveyancing for auction properties in Canning Town?


Yes - Our company is used to working with property auction procedures. Regularly difficult to value buildings e. g. barn conversions, are purchased in property auctions which tend to want added fact-finding. We therefore suggest that buyers at auction formally appoint a CQS conveyancing company in advance of the auction for a thorough investigation.

Immediately following the actual auction your lawyer is utterly ready for concluding the conveyancing in the reduced time frame as usually required .

  • responding to your property lawyer by phone, fax or email wherever possible
