How do I get low cost conveyancing?


This matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges will be included in the small print. Extra fees included in the small print should be reasonable. They be applicable if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


How much can the charges for my conveyancing searches total?


The cost of conveyancing searches can vary. They are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged at cost.


In about four weeks we are likely to move from our period property on the outskirts of Long Melford to a newer home in Framlingham when to instruct a home removal firm?


The ideal way is to hold off a removal van until both sides have confirmed a formal move date which occurs once exchange of contracts. If you are looking for a local company try Man With A Van Sudbury, 26 Swanfield, Long Melford, Sudbury, CO10 9EZ Phone: 01787 312131.


I am buying in Long Melford, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any extra fees?


No. Our solicitors do not hide any hidden charges for any reason. Know that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.


If my family are purchasing a property close by parish grounds in Long Melford, should you get a chancel search?


There are thousands of parishes in the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to contribute towards the cost of the repair of a local church. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Long Melford property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Churches in this area include Holy Trinity with St Catherine and St Catherine.


Why does the purchase conveyancing process in Long Melford take months to complete?


The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home can take more time. Homeward Legal do our best to minimise the cost of these delays where feasible to do so by proactively handling all enquiries.


We are purchasing a £1117000 Long Melford residential property. What should be worked out for stamp duty rates?


The SDLT payable will depend on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £55850 on a £1117000 house or flat.*

What will contaminate land in Long Melford. Are they an issue?


Residential property would be contaminated by many naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should reveal if a property can be impacted by contaminants in the region like overhead transmission lines and pollution incidents.
