How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?


Several firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees will be included in small print. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


We are buying in Miles Platting, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Will I be billed any hidden fees?


No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden fees. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.


What can a Miles Platting property lawyer recommend if the property we want to buy is in a Manchester local authority conservation area which appears to have inappropriate windows added?

Local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by your Miles Platting property lawyer during the conveyancing process should ascertain if the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of the appropriate permissions for alterations will be required.


Please tell us why sale conveyancing work goes on for so long?


The conveyancing process in Miles Platting can be drawn out for many reasons. Some reasons are out of the solicitors' control. Homeward Legal understand how frustrating these are and work hard to minimise the impact of these delays whenever we can by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.


How do we avoid paying for SDLT rates?


Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended. These schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable.


Should we be aware of 'fixtures and fittings'?


Buyers are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity around fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this makes resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.


Are many buyers in Miles Platting gazumped?


This takes place when the 1st buyer's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the house seller, selecting instead a higher offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of gazumping. You should instruct your property solicitor early to reduce the chance of gazumping.


The property being purchased is on a ex-industrial site. Is the topsoil possibly contaminated?


Miles Platting industry, agriculture and the natural environment can cause soil contamination. Also considering issues such as chlorine, contaminants affecting Miles Platting property will be factored into an environmental search.
