Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I need low cost conveyancing.

A.

This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges can pad your final bill. The conveyancing quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursments).Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What does a Dorchester property solicitor do when the home we are buying is in a local authority conservation area and has inappropriate doors added?

Your property solicitor will confirm whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have requisite permissions from the West Dorset planning authority.
