Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?

Several firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are often hiding in small print. Any extra costs should be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Bookshops and the web have a growing number helpful articles all about do it yourself conveyancing. Do we necessarily need a property solicitor in Bexleyheath ?

A.

There is absolutely no reason why a home buyer cant go down that route and do the bulk of the your own conveyancing without the help of Bexleyheath property solicitor.

More importantly amateur lawyers are not covered by the applicable professional indemnity insurance which practicing solicitors are made responsible to carry.

Q.

the Royal Bank of Scotland is going to be our lender - what do I need to check?

A.

Traditionally, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. House buyers need to be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in greater conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, can act on behalf of most lenders.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of St Anne Soho?

A.

Your lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Through some parish councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will remain liability-free for new owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
