Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor for buying a home?

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement that homeowners often do not check. Any disbursements ought to be listed on a Beckenham conveyancing quote. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Does your solicitors firm advise on the conveyancing of auction properties in Beckenham?

A.

Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with residential property auction protocols. Traditionally difficult to value auction lots like un-mortgageable properties, are listed at property auctions which need further exploration prior to exchange. Lawyers therefore strongly advise auction buyers to formally instruct a conveyancing firm well before the actual auction for a full report of the documents.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction your dedicated conveyancing lawyer is thoroughly ready for concluding the legal side of things within the limited time as usually required by the terms of sale.
