Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am trying to find a discount conveyancing estimate.

A.

Confusion over this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. A quote for conveyancing in Askam In Furness must also state any disbursements to be paid. Any additional costs listed in terms and conditions should be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will we need searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing a Askam In Furness house close by a vicarage.

A.

The conveyancing process can be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. Homeward Legal strive to reduce their impact by proactively handling all enquiries. Reasons for delay can include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

Should we instruct the conveyancing suggested by my estate agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often endorse a conveyancing firm, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including

online or local firms, as an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.
