How do we get fixed rate conveyancing?


This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs can increase the final invoice. Any extra fees should be reasonable. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


Do Homeward Legal get involved in auction conveyancing in Shrewsbury?


Our recommended conveyancing firms in Shrewsbury regularly do the legal work for sellers at auction. Homeward Legals panel of solicitors and conveyancers have worked for numerous buyers at local Shrewsbury property auctions that, amongst others, include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Canny bidders tend to get a lawyer as quickly as they can to allow time for a full review of the sellers pack in advance of the auction day itself. Post auction, your lawyer must be prepared for complete the legal side of things within 28 days as usually required by the standard auction conditions.


Would you recommend that I get a chancel search? We are buying a property by a priory built in the 1200s in Shrewsbury.


Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Shrewsbury Church council. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Churches in the area include Greenfields United Church, Abbey, Holy Trinity and S.George of Cappadocia.


We have a leasehold property to purchase. How do we get fast legal work?


Instructing a proactive property lawyer is crucial to fast conveyancing. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.


I have been reading about doing ones own conveyancing as a seller of a maisonette. Might it be viable to take care of the conveyancing on a DIY basis myself?


There is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't carry out the greater majority of the legal process without the help of a trained conveyancer in Shrewsbury.

In reality however, a solicitor carries out a large number of exercises including chasing retention releases and apportioning ground rents which are more safely handled with appropriate the relevant training. Critically DIY conveyancers take huge risks in operating without relevant insurance cover which solicitors must carry.


Unforeseen circumstances mean we want to exchange on the sale of our auctioned maisonette asap, do Homeward Legal introduce any fast Shrewsbury conveyancing solicitors ?


Regularly home moving solicitors are slow which brings even more anguish to the property moving process. Homeward Legals solicitors are proactive and endeavour to communicate to the whole buyer and seller chain and that use new document and form assembly systems to drive through your sale to your preferred move date.


Our lender will be Virgin, is there anything I need to know?


Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased legal costs for buyers if their chosen solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of many lenders in the UK.
