What do you charge for the legal fees on a £323,000 residence? We are looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote.


Numerous firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra charges included in the terms should be clearly defined and be applied only where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on your quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


I am buying a rectory in Bole. Will a chancel search be required?


Your solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


When in the conveyancing process should I speak to a solicitor in Dickens Heath?


In the vast majority of cases, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can begin immediately. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor

to act on your Dickens Heath sale or purchase can reduce any chance of your transaction stalling.


Do we need to make use of the firm of solicitors referred by the agent?


The agent can influence one or more conveyancing firms they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore persuade a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if they are paid a referral fee, there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.


Do it yourself conveyancing without the assistance of a Dickens Heath property solicitor is becoming possible when selling a maisonette but would it be a smart move ?


There are no reasons why a home mover should not reasonably undertake the bulk of the your own conveyancing without conveyancer in Dickens Heath. However, a property solicitor handles a large number of functions e.g. chasing retention releases and notifying the Land Registry of new charges many of which require a skilled professional. Critically DIY conveyancers might come a cropper relevant insurance which practicing lawyers must get.


Direct Line Mortgages is going to be our lender, is there anything I need to consider?


Some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of the vast majority of CML-approved lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.
