We need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Childwall. What should be watch out for?


Many online and high street property lawyers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions, left unregarded by busy buyers Additional fees should be reasonable and be applicable solely where your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your Childwall conveyancing quote should also clearly state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

What type of scrutiny regarding the risk of local flooding to properties in Merseyside will a conveyancing solicitor in Childwall look into?

How do I hold off paying stamp duty tax?


Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.


Should we get a building survey for our house purchase?


It is advised that home buyers order a house survey. There can be a range of defects that will impact a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, including dry rot and settlement.
