How do we find low cost conveyancing?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Additional charges should be reasonable. They only apply to matters if your solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


In what ways can my Petworth solicitor advise us on the potential risk of local flooding to properties in Petworth for a Victorian home we are intending to buy?


The lawyer will apply for environmental searches that should include Petworth flood risk data.


Can you address how I circumvent paying out for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is usually due on property purchases over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not advised when buying in Petworth. Such schemes are often uneconomical and can be very unlikely to succeed.


Do fixtures and fittings include things like beds?


Petworth property buyers are often frustrated by confusion over what fixtures and fittings should be included. A fixtures and fittings form can avoid any disputes and will clarify precisely what is to be included.


We ideally need to complete on the conveyancing on a property as quickly as possible, are you fast solicitors in Petworth ?


Many West Sussex conveyancers may be slow which can add further misery to the property moving process.

The use of state of the art fast response systems .

We always assign you a regulated home moving lawyer who will communicate with the complete property chain (line of buyers and sellers) for example managing agents, to get a fast home move.


Do I need a building survey?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that Petworth property purchasers order a RICS survey when you plan to buy in Petworth. A range issues affect a property. These include cracked roof tiles or failed double glazing. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


Our estate agent has suggested a solicitor which they often use. Should I instruct this solicitor?


Agent referrals are a common practice way to find a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as 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've got a conveyancing quote from you. Will there be any hidden fees?


No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any hidden extra charges regardless of circumstances.
