I need to find a cheap solicitor quote to buy a freehold house. How do I get a quote?


Various property lawyers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs can increase your final invoice. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


We are purchasing a £1187000 Surrey residential property. How is stamp duty assessed?


Stamp Duty will depend on a limited set of factors, primarily the value of the house. On a £1187000 residential property, stamp duty will be £59350.


Are some of the designated Surrey conservation areas are in poor condition?


A recent assessment of the state of conservation areas is surveyed by English Heritage. This information are currently to be found at their website:

Brooklands determined to be at risk with unknown vulnerability and deteriorating condition, Ewell Village determined to be at risk with unknown vulnerability and no significant change, Epsom Town Centre determined to be at risk with unknown vulnerability and deteriorating condition.


When in the process is it appropriate to arrange a conveyancing solicitor?


In the vast majority of cases, the sooner the better. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm to act for you on your Surrey transaction can reduce any chance of your sale or purchase aborting.


In what ways does the Surrey property solicitor investigate the risk and history of flooding in the Surrey region for a Regency building we intend to purchase?


A lawyer applies for official property environmental searches that will include Surrey historical flood risk information.


Is a retention fee a disbursement or a fee?


Comparing conveyancing quotes is often challenging, given the various definitions different firms use to describe the same thing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.


I must to complete on the selling of a flat inside 2 months - are Homeward Legal really fast solicitors in Surrey ?


Frequently solicitors firms are far too laid back which creates even more pressure to the house selling process.

Our CQS solicitors approach is different - we use new IT and CMS systems . Critically we provide you with a lawyer qualified to communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller property chain .


Lawyers in Surrey apply for a variety of property conveyancing searches when they are instructed to act for a purchase client - what actual searches?


When you are getting a mortgage the mortgage lender expects a solicitor to get at least the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches such as Bankruptcy Search (K16).
