Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We need to find an affordable conveyancing quote.


Both high-street and online law firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. A quote should also state any disbursements to be paid. Any costs included in terms of engagement should be reasonable. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.


Our lender is Barclays Bank - what do we need to know?


In some cases, lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in greater legal costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal can act for the majority of lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


In the next few we are going to move out of our semi detached residence in Canvey Island into our next home in Burnham On Crouch , at what point to instruct a home removal company?


Most solicitors will advise that home sellers wait booking a removals company until exchange of contracts as prior to this usually the firm date wont have been firmed up.

Many removals firms might impose a change of date fee

Speak to Johns Removals, 17 Meyel Av, Canvey Island, SS8 8BU Tel: 01268 681914 or Man & Van, 2 Sunningdale, Canvey Island, SS8 8DJ Call: 01268 680958.


How do we hold off paying out for stamp duty?


Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters.


I am purchasing a house in Wennington. Is a chancel search required?


The conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a property where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


Should I be worried about gazumping?


This describes circumstances where a property seller agrees to the 1st buyer's offer, then dismisses it, choosing instead another buyer's offer. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as you can.


Do your solicitors get involved in residential property auction conveyancing in Canvey Island?
