How do I get low cost conveyancing?


Several law firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which unwary buyers fail to check. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote Charges needs to be fair and reasonable and be applied only where the conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What amount of time will conveyancing legal work generally take? We have already found a buyer.


In general, the amount of time taken to sell or purchase a house varies, based on numerous issues which may include whether it is a leasehold property being transferred. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, whereas Homeward Legal aim for faster conveyancing, driving the transaction to complete within 6 to 8 weeks.


Should we employ the solicitors firm referred by the agent?


If you choose a solicitor referred through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to exert pressure on your behalf. These referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or

better-value firms found online, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.


Are there many buyers in Porthleven gazumped?


Gazumping takes place when an offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the seller, in favour of another purchaser's offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. You should instruct your conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.


Yorkshire Bank is our mortgage lender, what do we need to know?


Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in greater conveyancing costs for house purchasers if a second chosen solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of most mortgage lenders.


In respect to the flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are wondering if flood searches aren't sufficient?


A thorough Porthleven property lawyer will advise you to get additional property conveyancing searches if the standard conveyancing searches flag up a significant risk the local Porthleven flood risk

It could be worth trying to also contact a local resident to get additional local history.


I am purchasing a £602000 Porthleven house. How is Stamp Duty Land Tax assessed?
