How do we find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a leasehold flat?


Many online and high street law firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Your quote should also clearly state applicable disbursements. Any extra costs included in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined and only come into force where your conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


How early is it appropriate to instruct a solicitor?


With few exceptions, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as there are several tasks that may be performed immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your North West London sale or purchase for a sale can mean that documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.


Having heard about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 we are wondering whether environmental searches might not be sufficient?

Environmental searches applied for by a conveyancing solicitor in North West London will also include a far more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still anxious you could attempt to visit a local resident.


Clydesdale Bank is going to be our mortgage lender - what will I need to consider?


A small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. We, however, can act for the majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.


If I am buying in the parish of Harefield, will we need a chancel search?


Your property solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the residence being purchased is found. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


Will our legal charges cover any hidden charges?


No. Homeward Legal do not charge any extra, hidden costs whatsoever. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.
