Q.

I am trying to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. as we are on a budget.

A.

Lack of clarity over this matter affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Your conveyancing quote should list the disbursements to be paid.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

My friend has experience of the conveyancing process as a buyer of a home , Would it be sensible to take care of the legal work myself?

A.

Should you want to try, you can feasibly engage in the legal and technical work without engaging solicitor in East London. The truth is however that a lawyer in East London takes care of a significant number of assignments e.g. chasing replies to enquiries and interpreting management accounts most of which really need a skilled professional.

Even more importantly amateur lawyers are not covered by the appropriate indemnity cover which legal practices are required to carry.

Q.

How much does my conveyancing searches in East London be?

With Homeward Legal, conveyancing clients are expected to pay no more than £249 for a standard bundle of searches. They are disbursements paid to a third party.

Q.

We are buying a property with Rooftop Mortgages, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in higher legal costs for buyers if their solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal can act for all large UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

Is iron (Fe) top-soil contamination likely in East London?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in East London, risk levels are usually low. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting East London, including local authorities.

Q.

Is a survey required when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition, in East London?

A.

It is firmly advised that you order a survey if buying in East London. It is a fact that there are a range of concerns that can negatively affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as severe weathering or roof damage.

Q.

What factors assist with organising a fast conveyancing process?

A.

It is well established that instructing a experienced lawyer is the key to a fast completion. Consider the following:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?

Q.

The estate agent we're using in East London has referred the solicitors firm. Do I need to use this solicitor?

A.

Many agents in East London have referral deals with solicitors where they refer clients. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.
