How do we get a cheap solicitor in West Barnes to purchase a home?


Both high-street and online firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs may be added into the terms. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra costs listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair. They only apply to matters if your lawyer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


If I am purchasing in West Barnes, is it advisable to get a chancel search?


Owners of property neighbouring church property in the locality must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists.

The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Stamp duty is usually payable for houses over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation must be treated with caution by purchasers in West Barnes. Such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can
