What’s the difference between residential and commercial conveyancing?
In essence, there is very little difference between the tasks needed for residential conveyancing against commercial conveyancing. The real difference comes in the type of property and the purpose for which it is intended to be used.
The majority of residential transactions are freehold, whereas commercial transactions are almost exclusively leasehold, and commercial property conveyancing searches will tend to be more expensive because the structure and land will occupy a greater space on average than that for residential property.
Do I need to use the lawyer who usually works with by the agent?
Agent recommendations are a common practice route to find a solicitor. These referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may decide to recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

For our mortgage lender, we have chosen Lloyds TSB, what will we need to consider?
Purchasers should know that, in some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For purchasers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. We, though, can act on behalf of many lenders.
What are the benefits of an online solicitor against a high street firm?
Many commentators and bloggers have suggested that you get so much more from online conveyancers because they have access to state-of-the-art applications to manage their cases and use the latest communication technology.
However, there is nothing stopping high street conveyancing firms from adopting such technology. And they will have a wealth of experience and knowledge of the local area that they can bring to bear on your transaction.
It all comes down to what they offer and how they go about their business. You should get a selection of quotes and read through the terms and conditions in detail to understand the comparisons between what they offer and how much they are going to charge you for the service.
If you choose Homeward Legal, you not only get an experienced proactive solicitor but also access to the latest technology and local knowledge. Call us now on 0800 038 6699 to find out more.
