What do you charge for the legal fees on a £475,000 house? We need to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Knightsbridge.


This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs may pad your final bill. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Myself and my partner are buying in Knightsbridge. Can I confirm that the house is in a conservation area?


These areas qualify local areas recorded as being of historic or architectural significance. A property solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works for affected areas in Knightsbridge.


Conveyancers in Knightsbridge get varied property conveyancing searches when they are instructed to act for a buyer,, but which specific ones?

If you are applying for a mortgage the mortgage lender expects the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environment Search, as well as any less common searches for example British Waterways Search.


The internet has plenty of on and offline explanatory studies about on the subject of do it yourself conveyancing. Do I really want to use a Knightsbridge property solicitor ?


If you wish to do so, you can undertake the majority of the conveyancing without instructing a proficient conveyancing solicitor in Knightsbridge .

That said, a Knightsbridge conveyancer handles a large array of exercises such as approving enquiries on searches and reading the lease some of which really need training.

More importantly amateur lawyers might come a cropper the correct cover that all solicitors practices must take out.


Our purchase will complete on 18th September, how is stamp duty assessed?


The SDLT that will be due is based on a limited set of factors, including the purchase price. It will be £39280 on a £982000 residential property.


I am taking out a mortgage with the Royal Bank of Scotland, is there anything I need to check?


In some cases, lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act for many lenders.


How do I stop being gazumped?


The practice of choosing to reject a previously accepted offer on a house after a second buyer has made a better offer is called gazumping. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. Instructing a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.


We are buying on a recently-developed brownfield land. Is chromium soil contamination likely?


Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Knightsbridge, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. Metal contamination of soil in Knightsbridge is more likely to occur near ex-industrial sites or ex-landfills. Data on other contaminants, like disinfection by-products and groundwater contaminants like pesticides, will also be included in an environmental search.
