Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extras should be fair.


I have to complete on the conveyancing on a house inside a month - are Homeward Legal really fast solicitors in Dorset ?

Can I bypass paying for stamp duty on buying a house in Dorset?


Stamp duty commonly must be paid for home purchases sold for more than £125,000. Stamp duty reduction is not advised. Such schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail.


We are purchasing a £1071000. How is stamp duty rates calculated?


The Stamp Duty you must pay is dependent on the valuation. On a £1071000 house or flat, stamp duty will be £53550 (correct March 2013).


Do you need to get a chancel search? We are buying a Dorset residence close to parsonage grounds.


Where land in Dorset was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for maintenance of an old church building. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability.


How is contaminated land in Dorset investigated?


A broad range of contaminants may potentially impair Dorset property. Contaminants such as proximity to scrap yards will be considered as part of the environmental searches.


Should we make use of the lawyer offered by our local agent?


Agent referrals are a not uncommon path for purchasers to get a solicitor, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
