How do we find affordable conveyancing in Gloucestershire?


Numerous conveyancers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied homeowners Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on your conveyancing quote Additional fees found in the terms should be reasonable and be applicable if the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Is there something I can do to defer paying out for stamp duty tax?


Stamp duty is due on houses sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation is not recommended for purchases in Gloucestershire. Such schemes are expensive and very risky.


I am on a very small budget. Will doing the conveyancing myself without a conveyancing solicitor in Gloucestershire help save any cash?


It can certainly possible to handle the conveyancing on your own. The truth is however that a conveyancer is familiar with a large array of functions including chasing mortgage offer and notifying parties of completion which need a qualified solicitor. Furthermore solicitors must carry insurance cover to protect you from any professional losses you encounter made by the lawyer.


How much can my conveyancing searches in Gloucestershire cost?


Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, subject to the searches your lender requires. These searches are charged 'at cost'.


Will the Gloucestershire property lawyer tell me about the cost of the council tax for a Band G property prior to exchange?


The solicitor will speak to the relevant council to enquire about the up to date council tax rates, which will then be written in the title report. Correct rates for residents of Gloucestershire are tabled online at the Stroud council website. On 25 October 2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,025.00
  • Band B - £1,196.00
  • Band C - £1,366.00
  • Band D - £1,537.00
  • Band E - £1,879.00
  • Band F - £2,220.00
  • Band G - £2,562.00
  • Band H - £3,074.00


As a result of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are questioning if environmental searches aren't exacting enough?


Environmental searches conducted by the conveyancer in Gloucestershire will also include the far more detailed search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain still apprehensive make enquiries with a neighbour.


What will contaminate land in Gloucestershire. Are they an issue?


Property will be contaminated by a broad range of naturally-occurring factors, such as sand or gravel pits. An environmental search can give more clarity.


Is Homeward Legal able to 28 day completions on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Gloucestershire?


Yes - The legal team prepare legal packs for vendors and regularly carry out work for buyers at auction. Our niche auction team of conveyancers have acted for countless successful bidders at regional property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Canny buyers at auction tend to pick an auction experienced property lawyer as early as possible to allow for a full review of the auction legal papers before the date of the auction.

Thereafter, following the actual auction your chosen lawyer is thoroughly ready for finishing the legal side of things in a month as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.
