How do we get fixed rate conveyancing?


This topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


I have taken out a quote from you. Could we be charged any hidden costs?


Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any hidden charges. Our quotes offer an single, accurate fee.


Will we need a survey?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that buyers arrange a home surveyor to perform a survey. Many concerns can negatively affect a property. These can include settlement, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.


How usual is gazumping?


Gazumping is common across England and Wales and describes circumstances where a property seller accepts a lower

offer and later dismisses it. Instead, they then go for another buyer's offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of being gazumped. You should instruct your property solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.


As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began we are questioning whether conveyancing searches (environmental) won't be sufficient?


A thorough conveyancing solicitor in Fetcham will consider get in depth property environmental searches if the initial conveyancing searches identifies any kind of risk of flooding in Fetcham

You can always contact a local resident to gain more local history.


What environmental concerns can impact land in Fetcham, and will they be thoroughly investigated?


Property in Fetcham is contaminated by a wide range of environmental factors, like environmental radon sources or limestone or gypsum quarrying. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.


We are on a tight budget - Will doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the assistance of a Fetcham conveyancing solicitor help save any cash?


If you are so inclined have a go you can definitely conduct your own conveyancing without having a professional Fetcham property lawyer. That said, a Fetcham lawyer is in charge of a significant number of jobs including approving contract or investigating title documents which need the relevant training. More importantly have a go conveyancers are not covered by appropriate indemnity cover that solicitors practices will carry.


For a property valued at £222000, what will be calculated for stamp duty?


The Stamp Duty that will be due will depend on the value of the house or flat. Stamp duty will be £2220 on a £222000 home.*
