Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing?

A.

Many law firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but additional fees can inflate the final invoice. The conveyancing quote should also state applicable disbursements.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Is the SDLT fee a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Unscrupulous firms frequently hide fees which should be included as disbursements. It may not be obvious whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it should be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

I am planning to buy with Bank of Ireland Mortgages - is there anything we need to check?

A.

Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers in cases where the solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal can act for all large lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

We plan to complete on around 17th March, what should be calculated for stamp duty tax?

Stamp Duty in Halewood is based on the purchase price. For a house bought for £875000, SDLT is £35000.*
