I need a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. What should I check?


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs can inflate your final bill. Extra fees which are listed in the small print should be fair and clearly defined. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


We are buying a property where the seller looks to have installed unsightly PVC windows on the property in Rutland which we think may break local conservation area rules


The lawyer will always verify whether the property is within a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have the appropriate consent from the local council.


Do we need a home surveyor to view our house purchase in Rutland?


It is recommended that the majority of purchasers in Rutland order a home buyer survey when purchasing in Rutland. A range problems can negatively affect a property, including dry rot.


Is a Telegraphic Transfer fee paid to the solicitor?


A conveyancing quote will itemise disbursements and fees, clearly stating which is which. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.


Do you have good solicitors that have a lot of experience at auction conveyancing in Rutland?

Our property lawyers frequently work for bidders at auction. Our niche auction team of conveyancers have in the past acted for numerous successful bidders at local Rutland auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Usually difficult to value buildings like development propositions, are purchased in property auctions which demand increased due diligence before completion. Prudent purchasers will get a suitable lawyer as early as possible for a full investigation of the auction legal pack in advance of the property auction date. Immediately following the day of bidding a prepared lawyer needs to be able to concentrate on conclude the conveyancing in under the 28 day time frame as required by the conditions of sale.


What length of time will conveyancing legal work take? I already have an offer.


For most residential property, the number of weeks required to sell or purchase residential property does vary. This is influenced by numerous concerns. These may include whether it is a leasehold property being transferred. With Homeward Legal, a sale, purchase or transfer of equity is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.
