I need to find a cheap solicitor quote for selling a freehold home. How do I get a quote?


Various solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Chargeswhich are listed in terms and conditions needs to be fair and reasonable and be applicable if your conveyancer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Why does sale conveyancing work be so delayed?


The legal work required to buy or sell a property could be drawn out, Homeward Legal, however, aim to reduce the impact of these delays wherever a difference can be made.


When in the conveyancing process do we need to instruct a solicitor in Portland?


With few exceptions, the earlier, the better. The legal work can then commence immediately. Instructing your solicitor earlier can limit the risk of the sale or purchase aborting.


I have been reading about handling the legal work as a buyer of a home - Is it wise to enact the conveyancing myself on my own?


It is possible for you to look after the legal work yourself.

That said, a conveyancer takes care of a large number of assignments including chasing notices/share certificates or communication with

the lender many of which really need experience. In any event however, lawyers are required to get acceptable insurance cover to shield you from any negligence.


Our estate agent has referred a conveyancing solicitor. Will it be faster to instruct them?


Estate agent referrals are a common way to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.


I am going to be finally moving from our terraced building in Portland into a bigger property in Ferndown what is the right point to select a removals firm?


The most sensible course of action is for buyers to delay agreeing a removal firm until such time as all parties have set a formal move date which takes place once exchange of contracts.

Unexpected financial circumstances dictate that we need to exchange contracts on the sale of our house in a very short time frame, do Homeward Legal have any extra fast solicitors in Portland ?


Regularly property conveyancers are passive adding a lot of misery to the house selling process.

By employing new IT and automated practice management systems . We look after you with customers carefully selected lawyer who will communicate with all parties in the home buyer and seller chain like local authorities, to achieve a quick sale.


We are buying with Saffron Building Society - what will I need to know?


When purchasing with a mortgage, the lender will require legal work to be carried out. Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers in cases where the conveyancing solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. We are able to act for all major lenders so that you will not be required to pay your lender's legal costs.
