I am looking for affordable conveyancing. and what is included?


Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any additional charges listed in the small print needs to be clearly defined.


I am purchasing with Tesco mortgages, is there anything I need to be aware of?


Purchasers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher conveyancing costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal will act for most UK mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.


Our purchase is completing in May, what should be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax rates?


Stamp Duty depends on the house or flat's price. On a £64k house or flat, stamp duty will be £0.


Is a survey a good idea when we are buying a property in Hatfield?


Homeward Legal strongly recommend that purchasers in Hatfield arrange a property survey. It is a fact that there are a range of issues that can negatively affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, such as cracks around door frames.


I have a reasonable understanding of handling the legal work when buying a home , Might it be foolish to carry out the conveyancing on a DIY basis without any help?


Theoretically speaking there is no reason why a home buyer cannot complete the majority of the conveyancing without assistance.

The truth is however that a lawyer is familiar with a huge number of exercises e.g. liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries or verifying identities of transacting parties some of which really need experience.


We are going to buy a new build property, should we have searches carried out?


Searches are standard questions carried out for the buyer. Searches will only cover the legal aspects of the purchase.


How much would the cost of my conveyancing searches total?


With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, a client in Hatfield is required to pay no more than £249 for searches. Searches are disbursements, and are not included in a quote for solicitor's fees.


What will the council tax cost me for a buy to let Band B flat in Hatfield?
