I need a discount conveyancing quote. Will we get a quote or and estimate?


Many online and high street firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees may inflate the final invoice. Any costs listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. They come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, 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.


Why does the conveyancing process require weeks?


Conveyancing can take more time than initially expected, we, however, work hard to minimise the impact of these delays by proactively handling all enquiries. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for responses from third parties.


What does the Chippenham property solicitor recommend if the house we hope to purchase is in a Wiltshire local authority conservation area that possibly has inappropriate satellite dishes added?


Local authority LLC1 searches conducted by your solicitor during the legal process will confirm if the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of consent for modifications will be requested.


What are conveyancing searches?


These searches are a prescribed bundle of enquiries ordered in the interest of the purchaser. These searches do give much needed information and context, but will only cover legal considerations.


Are there many designated conservation areas in the area?


There are numerous areas of conservation in or near Chippenham. You may wish to contact the council for more information, but your conveyancing lawyer will address this during the conveyancing process.


How can we calculate Stamp Duty Land Tax rates and how much do we need to budget for a £942000 Chippenham house?


Stamp Duty depends on the value of the home. It will be £37680 on a £942000 residential property.


Do it yourself conveyancing without the assistance of a Chippenham conveyancing solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a seller of a house. Would it be reasonable ?


If you want to have a try you can practically complete the legal and technical work without instructing solicitor in Chippenham. However, a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a significant number of exercises including chasing retention releases and locating planning docs some of which require a skilled professional. More importantly DIY conveyancers are taking risks without the correct indemnity cover which solicitors practices are duty bound to have.


May our conveyancing quote take into account any hidden costs?


No. Our solicitors never hide any additional fees regardless of circumstances. You should be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.
