Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? I am trying to find an affordable conveyancing quote.


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many law firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote Any fees which are listed in terms and conditions ought to be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, 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.


How do we work out Stamp Duty Land Tax and what should we budget for a £349000 residence?


Stamp Duty will rely on the house or flat's price. Stamp duty will be £10470 on a £349000 property (correct March 2013).


We are intending to purchase with National Westminster Bank - is there anything we need to be aware of?


Buyers should be aware that a small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased legal costs for buyers if the lender insists upon their own lawyer . We, though, will act for most lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


With a £274k residence ready to buy, and no chain, how do we get a fast conveyancing process in Chinatown?


Instructing a proactive property lawyer is crucial to fast Chinatown conveyancing. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Do they use email?
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • How soon will they order searches?


If I plan to purchase in the parish of Walham Green, should we get a chancel search?


A conveyancing lawyer could recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In older areas of Chinatown, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


Please give reasons why conveyancing legal work takes so long?


The conveyancing process in Chinatown could take more time than budgeted. We aim to reduce the impact of these delays whenever possible by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.


Should we instruct the firm of solicitors who frequently works with by our estate agent in Harmondsworth?


The Harmondsworth agent will often suggest a conveyancing solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may prefer to suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.


As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began we are worried that property environmental searches won't be exacting enough?


Your property lawyer in Chinatown will include flood searches from Landmark if the standard conveyancing searches flag up any kind of risk of flooding in Chinatown.
