How do we get a cheap solicitor to buy a flat?


Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which unwary buyers fail to check. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What type of checks regarding the uncertain risk of local flooding in the Tyne And Wear region will the conveyancer in Roker be able to apply for a Sixties property we are going to buy?


A property lawyer conducts official environmental searches that will include Roker area flood risk information.


What can my conveyancing searches cost?


Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, subject to which searches have been ordered. Conveyancing searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and will be charged at cost.


We have a leasehold flat to purchase. How do we arrange a fast conveyancing process?


It is well established that contacting a proactive property lawyer is key a fast conveyancing transaction. There are, however, several tasks you can also do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • promptly answering your property lawyer's questions (by email if possible)
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements
  • encouraging your property lawyer to carry out searches promptly


When should we find a conveyancer?


With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the faster you instruct the better. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.


Why does purchase conveyancing have so many delays? Isn't it just filing paperwork?


Conveyancing could be subject to numerous interruptions or delays even in ideal circumstances. Sometimes, the delays are unhappily out of the solicitors' control. We seek to minimise the effect of these delays by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Reasons for delay include waiting for a mortgage offer.


How long may conveyancing legal work need, in your experience? We are buying in Roker.


The number of weeks taken to transfer a home is not wholly predictable, based on a range of aspects, for example, whether the property is leasehold. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, whereas Homeward Legal take a more proactive attitude, pushing a transaction to complete within 8 weeks if possible.


The owner looks to have fitted cladding in Roker which I think might infringe on conservation area criteria


The property solicitor will make enquiries to check whether the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have appropriate consent.
