I need to find a discount conveyancing estimate in Orpington. What do we need to consider?


Many property buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but additional charges can pad your solicitor's invoice. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What length of time does I allow for the conveyancing process generally take?


The time required to sell or purchase a house can vary. This is affected by numerous factors. These may include situations where another party does not quickly respond an enquiry. Our solicitors ensure the matter is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.


Which local authority is responsible for Orpington?


Orpington is located in London Borough of Bromley Council, Civic Centre, Stockwell Close, Bromley, BR1 3UH, phone: 020 8464 3337


We have to choose a fast solicitor in Orpington, is that your company?


We maintain that our speed focused property lawyers adopt a speed focused approach when completing the transfer of title for movers

Our lawyers approach to conveyancing is to employ modern conveyancing case management systems . More importantly , we give you a firm prepared to communicate through every part of the buyer and seller property chain .


Do I need to select the solicitors firm referred by my estate agent?


Agent recommendations are a commonplace route to find a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.


We are intending to buy a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Cowley. Is a chancel search necessary?


The conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. In Orpington's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so.


Is it dangerous to avoid paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?


Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty reduction. Such schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail.


Should I get a chancel liability search? I am buying near a vicarage in Orpington.


Where land in Orpington was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for upkeep of nearby church land. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance.
