How do we find a cheap solicitor quote to buy a house?


This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Why does conveyancing for a purchase have so many delays?


The conveyancing process could be drawn out, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to minimise their cost by driving the sale or purchase forward.


I urgently need very fast Crouch End solicitors - is that you guys?


Our conveyancers take a thoroughly take charge approach to carrying out the legal work for movers.

Homeward Legals firm endeavour to communicate up and down the property chain (sequence of buyers and sellers) and use the very latest productivity and information technology systems to push through the legal work in minimum time.


Are we likely to be gazumped?


This describes circumstances where a seller approves the first buyer's offer and then rejects it, opting for a greater offer. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. Consider instructing your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen The Woolwich, is there anything we need to be aware of?


Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal are able to act for many lenders.


The purchase is completing next June, what should be worked out for Stamp Duty Land Tax?
