Q.

We are trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms that unknowing buyers have not reviewed Charges included in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable and be applicable if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What are the pitfalls if we buy a flat within a Southwark local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the conveyancing process involves making enquiries of Southwark planning authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of permission for any alterations.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Lloyds TSB - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Buyers should know that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal will act for the vast majority of lenders.

What are conveyancing searches?

Conveyancing searches are standard enquiries carried out in the interest of the purchaser, such as a drainage search. Searches are strongly recommended, however they will only cover legal facets of the purchase.
