I am trying to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. as we are on a budget.


Lack of clarity over this matter affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Your conveyancing quote should list the disbursements to be paid.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


If we are intending to purchase near East London, in the parish of Cloudesley Square, do we need a chancel search?


Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so.


What environmental concerns will affect land in East London. Will they be thoroughly investigated?


Residential property may have been contaminated by a wide range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search will confirm if a specific plot of land could be affected by contaminants in East London such as civil aviation activity in the area.


We are buying a property where the seller looks to have installed unbecoming PVC windows on the building in East London which I think might conflict with conservation area criteria


A conveyancing solicitor is required to determine if your new home is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the essential consent.


Why can the conveyancing process take weeks to complete?


The legal work required to buy or sell a property will sometimes be obstructed. We endeavour to diminish the impact of these delays where it is possible to do so. Common delays may include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.


I have to complete on the selling of a house quickly - are you really fast solicitors in East London ?


Our conveyancers always adopt an extremely efficient approach to completing the conveyancing process.

Our solicitors method is different - we always use the very latest technology and online systems . Critically we always allocate you a SRA regulated solicitors incentivised to communicate from the beginning to the end of the buyer and seller property chain .


Is a survey required when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition, in East London?


It is firmly advised that you order a survey if buying in East London. It is a fact that there are a range of concerns that can negatively affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as severe weathering or roof damage.


What average time should I expect it to take our lawyer to exchange contracts the conveyancing process on a maisonette in a Victorian home we are buying?


The process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 12 weeks, which can depend on a number of factors like the efficiency of the seller's property solicitor, or the communication, with managing agents.
