How do we get a discount conveyancing estimate in Devon?


Many online and high street solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any additional costs should be reasonable. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


Should I be worried about gazumping?


Gazumping describes when an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, in preference to a better offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. Instructing a property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.


Do I need a survey for this home purchase?


Homeward Legal recommend that property purchasers book a property survey. A wide range of problems affect a property, such as failed double glazing or unsafe chimney circulation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.


The web is awash plenty of useful books about doing your own legal work. In which case, do I need to use a conveyancing solicitor in Devon ?


There are no reasons why a home seller cannot decide to take care of he conveyancing without lawyer in Devon.

In reality however, a lawyer in Devon carries out a large number of assignments including chasing outstanding

papers and the Land Registry formalities many of which are better done by someone with adequate training.


How can my property solicitor in Devon advise on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Devon area on a buy to let property we are hoping to buy?


The lawyer will conduct property conveyancing searches that will include Devon flood risk area data. Additionally the Devon conveyancing solicitor will sometimes recommend an inexpensive additional in-depth local Devon flood risk search.


Will your conveyancing solicitor in Devon apply for personal or official searches on my property purchase?


Your lawyer will inform you as to the ideal type of search, depending on things like mortgage lender requirements. If personal searches are used the conveyancer may consider a search agent wit local experience for example Landmark Information Group Limited, 5-7 Abbey Court, Sowton Industrial Estate, Eagle Way, Exeter, Devon, EX2 7HY Tel: 0844 844 9966 Fax: 0844 844 9980


Is it a good idea to hold off paying stamp duty on property?


SDLT commonly must be paid for purchases sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are costly and very risky.
