How do I get a cheap solicitor to sell a property?


Both high-street and online conveyancers promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra costs are frequently hidden in small print. Any additional fees should be fair and clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are selling.


We are anxious about the council tax charges on a period end of terrace property in Covent Garden, how much are they?


In most cases a report on title will provide the Westminster council tax band. Council tax rates for homes in Covent Garden are set out online at the Westminster council site. On 27 October 2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £456.00
  • Band B - £533.00

  • Band E - £837.00
  • Band F - £989.00
  • Band G - £1,141.00
  • Band H - £1,369.00


When in the conveyancing process should you speak to a conveyancing solicitor?

If you use a conveyancing solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier, the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be performed immediately. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a sale allows paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Covent Garden solicitor ready when you make an offer.


What do I need to be aware of if we buy a semi detached house in a Westminster council designated conservation area ?


An integral part of conveyancing for purchasers involves ordering of LLC1 searches of the local authority to confirm conservation area status and permission for any alterations. Conveyancing searches are not fees and are charged at cost to the purchaser. In the absence of any consents, your conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternatives, which include seeking from Westminster council or getting covered by an indemnity insurance policy.


Handling the legal work without using a property solicitor in Covent Garden looks to be possible as a buyer and seller of a maisonette. However be shrewd ?


Theoretically there are no arguments why a seller cant opt to embark on the legal and technical work unaided. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor handles a large number of actions such as chasing notices/share certificates and handling retentions which need a qualified professional.

Despite that solicitors need to carry appropriate indemnity cover to safeguard you in the event of failures.

The cost of Covent Garden conveyancing searches does vary. Other informative searches include a gypsum search.
