We need to find affordable conveyancing. What do we need to consider?


Both high-street and online solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. Any fees found in the terms should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

What will the Devizes property solicitor recommend if the house I am buying is in a Wiltshire conservation area which seems to have conspicuous windows installed?


The local authority enquiries conducted by your Devizes conveyancing solicitor during the legal process should identify if the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of local authority approval for changes to the property will be requested.


I've had a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any hidden fees?


No. We never charge any hidden extra fees for any reason. It may be the case that a separate piece of work is also advised, a statutory declaration, . Your solicitor can advise you of these.


Do I need to get a house survey?
