We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Berkshire. What should we check?


Various law firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


I have taken out a quote from you. May we end up paying any hidden charges when the transaction completes?


No. Homeward Legal will not charge any additional costs for any reason. A Homeward Legal conveyancing quote is an honest and accurate price the legal costs for your transaction.


How does the property solicitor in Berkshire advise us on the potential risk of a flood around Berkshire?


A key part of the legal due diligence procedure of purchasing a property involves your conveyancer conducting environmental searches that provide specific information on the subject of Berkshire historical flood risk.


We are buying in Berkshire on a new-build ex-industrial site. Is the top-soil possibly contaminated by waste minerals like uranium?

Legislation exists to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and perchlorate, contaminants affecting Berkshire property will be factored into an environmental search.


Our lender will be The Woolwich - what will I need to be aware of?


Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased legal costs for property buyers. We will act on behalf of the majority of CML-approved lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.


Is your solicitor team set up to 1 month completions on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Berkshire?

Our highly qualified property solicitors have been instructed by numerous buyers at local Berkshire auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Clever buyers always decide on a an auction experienced property lawyer as ahead of time as they can for a thorough review of the property's legal title well in advance of the date of the auction. Subsequently, immediately after the auction day your Homeward Legal lawyer is wholly able to concentrate on finishing the purchase inside a month as typically required .


What specific search enquiries should my Berkshire lawyer conduct when carrying out the conveyancing for a Berkshire property?


The regular conveyancing protocol is to obtain the following Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search and occasionally area-specific searches e.g. a SIM.


I have read about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began I am worried that environmental searches may not be sufficient?


Environmental searches applied for by the Berkshire conveyancing solicitor will include the far more specialist Landmark flood search if required.

If you are nervous you could approach a neighbour or local resident.
