Is it reasonable to enact the legal conveyancing process on my own.


In theory, there is no argument why a seller shouldn't carry out the conveyancing yourself.

That said, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a long list of actions including chasing completion statements and notifying parties of completion which need a qualified solicitor. Nevertheless firms and their solicitors are obliged to obtain suitable insurance that ultimately protects you from any omissions.


We want fast property lawyers in Swiss Cottage - is that your firm?


On the whole solicitors practices are very listless creating huge aggravation to the property conveyancing process. Homeward Legals carefully selected solicitors approach is different - we use the very latest HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems . Importantly we give you a chosen solicitor qualified to communicate from the beginning to the end of the buyer and seller property chain .


Will I need searches for chancel liability? I am buying in Swiss Cottage.


The judgement in a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must subsidise church repairs. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013.


For our lender, we have chosen Virgin, what do we need to know?


When arranging a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers in Swiss Cottage need to be aware that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act for most mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


What causes the conveyancing process to seem to be so slow?


The conveyancing process can take more time even in the best of circumstances. Some reasons are beyond the conveyancing solicitor's influence. We seek to reduce their consequences wherever possible to do so by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Delays may include a slow firm acting for the lender.


Do I need to opt for the property solicitor suggested by our estate agent in Horfield?


Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace path whereby buyers get a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
