Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor quote to buy a house?

A.

This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Could there be any hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any extra, hidden costs to transfer a property. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen The Woolwich, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal are able to act for many lenders.

Q.

Does your solicitors firm handle auction conveyancing in Crouch End?

A.

Homeward Legal is used to working with buyers at auction. Often hard to value houses for example properties requiring improvement, are bought at property auctions which tend to require extended fact-finding before completion. Conveyancers therefore recommend bidders to choose a residential property lawyer well before the day of the auction to allow sufficient time for a full review of the documents. Immediately following the auction day arrives your selected lawyer is utterly focused on completing the legal work within the limited time frame as conventionally required .
