What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £529k home? We need to find an affordable conveyancing estimate.


This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees may increase the final invoice. Any extra costs should be reasonable and clear. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


Would you state looking into how to avoid paying out for HMRC stamp duty?


We do not recommend home buyers get involved with any form of stamp duty scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been several official schemes, such as disadvantaged area relief, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.


How much time can I plan for conveyancing often need, in your opinion?


The length of time required to sell or purchase property may vary, influenced by a broad set of issues which may affect the property. With Homeward Legal's Stansted property experts, your sale or purchase is undertaken as quickly as possible.


Do we need to plan for gazumping?


The convention of rejecting the first offer post-acceptance when a better offer is made by a second buyer is called gazumping. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. Instructing a solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.


Virgin Money is going to be our mortgage lender, is there anything we need to consider?


Purchasers should know that some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act for the majority of lenders, ensuring that an additional chosen solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.


Are many Stansted areas of conservation likely to affect us?


Parts of Stansted considered be of architectural merit, like 19th century suburbs, may be defined as conservation areas. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to provide more details and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Our agent has put forward the property solicitor who they generally use. Is it risky to instruct them?


It is common practice for agents to recommend one or more conveyancing firms, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.
