Homeward Legal can act for all major mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

What’s the difference between exchange of contracts and completion?
When you exchange contracts, this means that you are agreeing to all the terms drawn up within the contract made between you on one side of the transaction, and the opposite party on the other side. It is from this point that you are legally obliged to go through with the transaction (unless you want to be subject to financial and/or legal penalties).
The completion of contracts is the point where you officially take over ownership of the property, receive the keys and can move in. All monies are transferred between the various parties and the conveyancing solicitor contacts the Land Registry to register the change of ownership to you.

My agent has offered the solicitor whom they usually use. Should I use them?

Can you confirm how I circumvent paying out for stamp duty?
Stamp duty reduction is not advised. Such schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.
Does your solicitors firm deal with the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Brecon Beacons?
We are able to work with property auction protocols. Typically hard to value buildings e. g. development plots, are included at auction and these want additional legwork prior to exchange. Lawyers therefore advocate buyers to select a local lawyer well before the property auction so there is time for a review.
Immediately following the property auction your now prepared solicitor is fully focused on finishing the legal side of things inside 28 days as typically required .
