I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. What do we need to check for?


Many solicitors promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Extra charges listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable and clear. They only apply in cases where the lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


I am buying soon and have a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any hidden fees?


Our solicitors do not charge any additional fees for sale or purchase conveyancing. A Homeward Legal quote is an accurate price.


Which local authority looks after Chigwell?


Chigwell is located in London Borough of Redbridge Council, PO Box No2, Town Hall, 128- 142 High Road, Essex, IG1 1DD, phone: 020 8554 5000


How soon do we need to instruct a conveyancer?

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor early for a purchase allows you will the details of your Chigwell solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.


We are going to buy a sixties investment property in the middle of a conservation area in Chigwell, how do I find information in respect of the state of upkeep?


Conservation areas are created by Epping Forest who are responsible for everything from public spaces to the halting of neon signs. English Heritage, a government body, have produced records of the state of conservation areas in England.


The vendor appears to have added dormer windows to the flat in Chigwell which I think may defy local conservation area guidelines


Your instructed lawyer will carry out searches find out if the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the necessary consent from the local planning authority.


We are buying a £1136000 property in Chigwell, how is stamp duty tax calculated?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is calculated based on the home's value. Stamp duty will be £56800 on a £1136000 house.


As a consequence of the Met Office warn of more intense rain - 15-30% (according to climate change risk in 2012) we are apprehensive that property environmental searches may not be sufficient?


Property environmental searches carried out by the property solicitor in Chigwell will also include the more informative search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are anxious why not approach a local resident.
