Please confirm the cheapest fee for a 307,000 home? We need low cost conveyancing.


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra charges will be included in the small print. Extra fees found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


I am going to purchase with Natwest - is there anything we need to check?


Traditionally, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, which may result in increased legal costs for house purchasers. We, fortunately, are able to act for most mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.


Do it yourself conveyancing without instructing a conveyancing solicitor in Northumberland is becoming possible when selling a maisonette. Would it actually be sensible ?

Above all do it yourself conveyancers will not be covered by the applicable insurance cover that all legal firms are required to be covered by.

If I am purchasing in the parish of Widdrington, should we get a chancel search?


Your property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


When in the conveyancing process should I get a conveyancer to act for us?


If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as early as possible is better, as there are several tasks which may begin straight away. Promptly instructing a solicitor for your Northumberland transaction can reduce the likelihood of your transaction aborting.


How does a Northumberland conveyancing solicitor report back on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Northumberland region?

Which issues assist with getting fast conveyancing?


Experienced buyers will tell you that finding a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor is essential to a fast conveyancing transaction. When identifying an appropriate a conveyancing solicitor, ask yourself the following: How soon will they order searches? Was there a delay delivering a quote? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
