Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs may be added into the small print. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What will the Ashtead property lawyer do when the flat I hope to invest in is within a conservation area and has unsuitable PVC windows added?


Your solicitor will make enquiries to verify if your new home is located within a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the requisite permissions from the local authority.


There is a lot of free information about conveyancing as a buyer of a flat , Might it be a silly move to do the DIY conveyancing without any help?

Theoretically speaking there is no reason why a buyer cant adopt a DIY approach and handle the greater majority of the legal process unaided.

That said, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a huge array of functions such as chasing replies to enquiries or interpreting management accounts many of which are better done by someone with a skilled professional.

The legal process can take anywhere from a month to 3 months depending on various issues e.g. the speed of the seller's property lawyer, or the speed of the local authority. Our proactive property lawyers are extremely focused on communication work towards exchanging as soon as we possibly can.

The conveyancing process may be drawn out.
