How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Temple for a £57k property?


The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may be added into the terms. Charges included in the terms needs to be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your quote ought to define the disbursements to be paid.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

What kind of flood plain searches as respects the risk of floods at City Of London will the Temple conveyancing solicitor actually apply for an Edwardian building we are intending to buy?

When in the conveyancing process should I instruct a conveyancer?


Whether you are buying or selling in Temple, instructing as soon as possible is wise. The legal work can then commence straight away. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until a chain is completed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

This takes place when a property seller accepts the first buyer's offer and then refuses it, opting for another purchaser's offer.

Does your solicitors company handle property auction conveyancing in Temple?


Our company is highly experienced with auction buyers and sellers. Typically unusual buildings are listed in property auctions which need increased exploration before completion. Homeward Legal therefore strongly recommend that purchasers formally instruct a SRA regulated lawyer before the property auction date for a thorough review of the lot. Thereafter, following the property auction a prepared lawyer must be fully prepared to get through all of the legal work in the usual 28 days as typically required by the standard auction conditions.
