We are on a very tight budget. Will doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without a solicitor in Burnley help save any money?


It is possible for you to look after the legal process on your own.

That said, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a huge number of exercises such as raising additional enquiries or checking replies to additional enquiries most of which need a qualified professional. Furthermore solicitors practices are compelled to pay for insurance in order to protect you from any oversights on the part of the solicitor.

We are taking out a mortgage in Burnley with Chelsea Building Society - what will we need to consider?


Traditionally, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. Buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of many lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.
