I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate. How do we get a quote?


Various firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms that property buyers and sellers often do not check. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


I intend to sell our jointly owned property in a local property auction, will you use fast solicitors in Shenfield ?


Generally solicitors are extremely slow adding additional anguish to the house conveyancing process.

Our approach is different - we always use the very latest fast response systems . Critically , we give you a conveyancing solicitor prepared to communicate through the whole of the property chain .


Will we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Wendon Lofts, near Shenfield?

A property solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. Although some church councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on new owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be free from liability. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Which local authority is responsible for Shenfield?


Shenfield is located in Brentwood Borough Council, Council Offices, Ingrave Road, Brentwood, Essex CM15 8AY, Tel: 01277 312500


Does my property lawyer in Shenfield order any property conveyancing searches on the Essex period detached property I am intending to purchase?


The routine procedure is to get Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental, and possibly particular searches, like Land charge Searches.


Can you confirm how to defer paying for stamp duty in Shenfield?


We do not recommend clients risk any stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are expensive and unreliable. There have been several official schemes, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.


How is contaminated land in Shenfield checked?


A broad range of contaminants may lessen the value of property. Issues including infilled land will be considered as part of the environmental searches.


Will we need a chancel search when we are buying a Shenfield property close to a vicarage?


Chancel repair can require residential property owners to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of specific local church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Shenfield property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Shenfield church properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St Mary the Virgin.
