I need a cheap solicitor to buy a new build home. because we are on a limited budget.


Many firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable.

The owner looks to have fitted satellite dishes on the maisonette in Westhoughton which I think might break nearby conservation area guidelines


A property solicitor will always find out whether the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the appropriate consent from the Bolton authority. In the absence of any the necessary permissions the solicitor will advise you of all options, which include getting from Bolton local authority or seeking cover from an indemnity policy.


For a lender, we have chosen Santander, what will I need to know?


Buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased legal costs for property buyers if the lender insists upon their own preferred solicitor . Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of many mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


We are on a tight deadline, and would like guarantee fast conveyancing, what can we do to accelerate our transaction?

  • encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly
  • answering any queries raised by the conveyancer as soon as possible
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements

Stamp duty reduction scheme is not advised when buying in Westhoughton. These schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable. There have been several official schemes, however, such as for first-time buyers.


Why could conveyancing seem to be so slow? Should we be worried?


The conveyancing process in Westhoughton may endure stressful setbacks even in the best of circumstances. In some cases, the delays are out of the solicitor's hands, Homeward Legal, however, know the needless stress these can cause and strive to curtail the consequences of these delays by driving the transaction forward. Delays can include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.


How many weeks may conveyancing require, on average?


The length of time required to transfer a house may vary, based on numerous considerations which can include if third parties fail to promptly answer queries. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, we however will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.
