How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?


Many property lawyers purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the small print which unwary homeowners fail to check. Charges included in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.


Please give reasons why conveyancing legal work goes on for so long?


The legal work involved in buying or selling Southgate property will sometimes be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. We strive to lessen their effect by pushing all parties involved. Common delays can include slow solicitors acting for the other side.


Do you need to get a chancel liability search? We are buying a property close to church grounds in Southgate.

The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must contribute towards church repairs. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Churches in Southgate include Christ Church.


Is a building survey necessary when purchasing residential property?


It is advised that most purchasers arrange a survey. There are many defects that affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, such as settlement and cracked roof tiles.


I have a need for really fast solicitors in Southgate, is that you guys?


Frequently house buying lawyers can be too slow which can cause large amounts of stress to the property legal process.

By utilising modern IT and automated practice management systems .

We always give sellers a CQS lawyer practiced at communicate by phone and email with everyone in the buyer and seller chain for example managing agent companies, to bring about a fast completion.


May costs for the conveyancing for our Southgate purchase cover any extra costs?


No. Homeward Legal never charge any hidden extra fees whatsoever.


Can you confirm how to avoid paying out for stamp duty to HM Revenue?


Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is generally due on property purchases sold for over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We do not recommend clients expose their finances to any stamp duty avoidance. Such schemes are often uneconomical and very risky.


What are 'conveyancing searches'?


Searches are a prescribed set of questions carried out for the buyer, including a local authority search. Searches will not be a substitute for a building survey.
