Q.

How do I get the cheapest Darlington conveyancing quote?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra fees which are listed in the terms should be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Could our legal charges incorporate any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any extra, hidden charges for your legal work. You Darlington conveyancing quote is an single, accurate price.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction on the purchase of a £190,000 home, how could we speed up the conveyancing process?

As is often argued, instructing a communicative lawyer is key a fast conveyancing transaction. When finding a lawyer, you should ask the following: Was there a delay delivering a quote? Do they use email? Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

How long on average does it take my property lawyer to exchange the conveyancing process on the lower floor of house we are intending to buy in Darlington?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months, which can depend on various factors like the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

The convention of choosing to reject an accepted offer on a house when a higher offer is made by a second buyer is referred to as gazumping. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

Our lender is Lloyds TSB - what do I need to know?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in greater legal costs for buyers. We, however, can act for many UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
