How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?


Various solicitors promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


My wife and I are buying in Dosthill, and would like to check if there are many designated conservation areas.


Conservation areas protect streets and neighbourhoods of special architectural or historic interest. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.


How long on average should it take the lawyer to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing formalities on an apartment in a Victorian building?


The conveyancing process can take anywhere between around a month and 3 months based on a number of issues e.g. the efficiency of the vendors lawyer, or the speed of the lender.


Should I read about DIY conveyancing as a buyer and seller of a flat. Might it be practicable to carry out the legal conveyancing process myself?

Theoretically there is no reason why a buyer should not complete the legal process yourself. The truth is however that a solicitor in Dosthill handles a large array of exercises including chasing completion statements or maintaining constant communication with agents some of which require a skilled professional. However lawyers are obliged to have sufficient insurance that ultimately protects you in the event of any oversights on the part of the solicitor.

Our estate agent in Tenby has suggested a property lawyer that they have used before. Should I instruct this firm?


Agent referrals are a commonplace way for home buyers to find a solicitor, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may decide to recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.


Do you recommend looking into how to avoid paying stamp duty on buying a house in Dosthill?


Stamp duty avoidance should not be considered, as such schemes are highly expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.


What sort of conveyancing searches as respects the risk of a flood in the Staffordshire area will the Dosthill conveyancer actually do?
