How do we find a cheap solicitor to own a home?


The confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs ought to be reasonable. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

What causes conveyancing for a purchase to take months to complete?


The conveyancing process will occasionally experience delays even in the best of circumstances. The delays are beyond a lawyer's power. Homeward Legal aim to reduce their effect by proactively handling all enquiries.


For fast conveyancing to buy a £327,000 house, what can we do to speed up our move?


The key to a fast completion is to instruct a experienced property lawyer. There are numerous tasks you could do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • calling or emailing the property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • answering any queries raised by your property lawyer as soon as possible
  • arranging your mortgage offer


Would getting a property survey be necessary when we are purchasing a property?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly advise that buyers book a house surveyor to perform a survey when buying in Thurrock. There are a wide range of issues which can affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as blocked drains or cavity wall tie failure.


What does my conveyancing searches on average cost?


Searches range in cost. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.
