What do you charge for the legal fees on a £741k property? We need to find a discount conveyancing quote.


Various solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees are often hiding in small print. This small print is often not read by property buyers and sellers in a hurry. A quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements). Any charges found in terms of engagement ought to be fair. They only come into force where your conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, can we guarantee a fast completion?


As is often reported, moving faster is essential to is to employing a proactive property lawyer. You should consider:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • How soon will they order searches?


Our purchase will complete on 23rd September. How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates calculated?

SDLT is dependent on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £11490 on a £383000 house or flat.*

Might my conveyancing costs cover any extra fees?


Homeward Legal never charge any additional charges for standard conveyancing legal work. Our quotes offer an single, accurate fee the legal expenses for your transaction.


We are purchasing a barn conversion in Chichester St Martin. Will a chancel search be specified?


Whichever Hailsham parish in which you are buying, a conveyancer may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not automatically be the case for future owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


What length of time does it take our conveyancing solicitor to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing work on the lower floor of home?


It can take anywhere from 1 month to three months, which can be affected by a number of issues for example the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or renegotiations.


How much can searches be?


With a Homeward Legal solicitor, Hailsham conveyancing clients are required to pay no more than £249 for the standard search bundle. Searches are paid to a third party, and will not be included in the quoted conveyancing fees.


Will the report on the property's title compiled by the lawyer in Hailsham advise on the applicable rates of the council tax on a Band B townhouse before exchange?


The solicitor will liaise with the council to ascertain the applicable council tax band and rates, which will then be detailed in the conveyancing report on title.
