I am looking for a cheap solicitor to buy a house. Will we get a quote or and estimate?


Many conveyancers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms which buyers may have not read carefully A conveyancing quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements). Costs found in the small print should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Does the Forty Hill property lawyer report back to me about the cost of the council tax for a Band A house prior to completion?


The property solicitor will consult with the governing South Gloucestershire local council to ascertain the applicable council tax charges which will be added to the conveyancer's title report. The latest council tax charges for homes in Forty Hill are detailed online at the South Gloucestershire local authority site. At the time of writing on 05 August 2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,023.00

Which elements are key to aim for a fast conveyancing process?


Primarily, buying faster is crucial to instruct a experienced lawyer. There are, in addition, a range of tasks you as the buyer can also do, such as, contacting your lawyer regularly, organising your finances and quickly answering your lawyer's questions (by email if possible).


How do I find out additional data the status of the conservation areas in Forty Hill?

How much would conveyancing searches be?


With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, clients buying a property expected to pay no more than £249 for searches. They are disbursements, and are charged 'at cost'.


Should I select the lawyer referred by the agent?


If you instruct a conveyancing solicitor through this route, you the agent can pressure a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.


We are purchasing a property with Nationwide, is there anything we need to check?


When organising a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Recently, a number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal will act for all large UK mortgage lenders.
