Q.

We need a cheap solicitor to own a home. What should we check?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are often hiding in small print. Additional costs which are listed in the terms needs to be fair and reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

How much would the conveyancing searches be?

Q.

Should we choose the conveyancing solicitor suggested by our estate agent?

A.

An agent in Bermondsey will have influence over a solicitor they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore induce a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may prefer to suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing in Greystones. How do I verify if the property is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas considered to be of historic or architectural significance, like stretches of canals, may be recorded as conservation areas. The advantages of these restrictions will include protection against unsympathetic development, but they can make repairs more costly or time-consuming. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to offer more information.
