We are trying to find a law firm that offers cheap conveyancing. and what is included?


Many online and high street solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra fees will be included in the terms. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Charges needs to be fair and reasonable and only come into force where the solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Is it important to get a chancel search? We are buying a residence in Holborn.


Owners of property near to church property in the locality must subsidise repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Terms used in a property's name, like 'glebe', may indicate chancel liability. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Churches in this area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Alban and St Sepulchre.

Can we avoid paying stamp duty?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually payable for property purchases valued at over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any form of stamp duty reduction scheme, because these schemes are costly and unreliable.


How frequent is gazumping?


Gazumping occurs when an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, opting instead for another buyer's higher offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct an efficient solicitor early.


We have taken out a conveyancing quote from you. Will we be billed any extra fees?


No. We do not hide any hidden charges whatsoever. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which they will not be required to adhere to.
