We need to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. How do I get a quote?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Extra fees found in terms and conditions should be reasonable. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


Does Homeward Legal do auction conveyancing in Herne Hill?


Our firm is able to act on residential property auction conveyancing. Regularly more complicated to convey homes for example building plots, are purchased in property auctions and these want more due diligence by the property lawyer We therefore suggest that purchasers instruct a good property conveyancing lawyer well before the actual auction to allow sufficient time for a full investigation.

Immediately following the date of the auction your Homeward Legal conveyancing lawyer is absolutely ready for finishing the legal work within the limited time frame as required .


Do we need to use a property solicitor generally used by my local agent?


An agent will usually endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as the agent may prefer to suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.


I am worried about the council tax rates on a period terraced house in Herne Hill, what are they?

Environmental searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but in light of recent weather changes for example the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began are they the best way to determine sufficient information about the local Herne Hill flood risk?

For greater assurance you could get in touch with a next door neighbour.
