What are the best conveyancing rates for a £121,000 house?


Various firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees may be added into the solicitor's terms. Extra charges listed in the terms needs to be clearly defined. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.


We are taking out a mortgage with Rooftop Mortgages - is there anything I need to know?


Buyers should be aware that, in some cases, lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. We can act for many lenders in the UK.


Is it necessary that I get a chancel liability search? We are buying close by a church built in the 17th Century in Wimbledon.


In Wimbledon, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of upkeep of older church buildings. Parochial Church Councils in Wimbledon must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Wimbledon church properties include St Matthew, St John the Baptist, St Mary and St Mark.


We are enquiring about council tax rates on a period end of terrace property in Wimbledon, how much are they?


In most cases the title report should include the relevant Wandsworth council tax band. The correct charges for Wimbledon are set out on the Wandsworth local authority website. As at (30 June 2012) the rates are:

  • Band A - £456.00
  • Band B - £532.00
  • Band C - £608.00
  • Band D - £684.00
  • Band E - £836.00
  • Band F - £988.00
  • Band G - £1,140.00
  • Band H - £1,367.00


I urgently need fast Wimbledon conveyancing solicitors - is that your firm?


Worryingly, a high proportion of conveyancing lawyers can be far too lackadaisical which creates a lot of stress the process of buying or selling a home. Homeward Legals CQS solicitors approach is different as we use cutting edge case management systems . More importantly , we always assign a solicitor incentivised to communicate from the beginning to the end of the home buyer and seller chain .


Should we get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Honeychurch?


Your conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on new owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future. For property in the parish of Honeychurch, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


How is stamp duty calculated, what amount should we budget for a £1027000 residence?


The rate of stamp duty that is payable is calculated with reference to the valuation. It is £51350 on a £1027000 house.*

*Accurate as of September 2012


How soon should I instruct a solicitor to handle our purchase?


In the majority of situations, as soon as possible. The legal work can then begin immediately. Some groups recommend postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.
