Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may pad the solicitor's invoice. Extra charges should be fair and reasonable. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid ought to be defined on a quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Our agent has put forward a solicitors firm. Is it a good idea to use them?

A.

Many agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors whereby they refer work, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Will the property legal fees cover any additional costs?

A.

No. We do not hide any additional fees. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report required when we are purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

It is recommended that home buyers arrange a house surveyor. It is a fact that there are many concerns that can negatively affect a property. These include poor ventilation. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

Co-operative Bank will be our lender - what will we need to check?

A.

Purchasers should consider that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater conveyancing costs for purchasers if the lender insists upon their own solicitor . Homeward Legal can act for most mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Hampstead?

A.

Hampstead is located in London Borough of Camden Council, Camden Town Hall, Judd Street, London, WC1H 9JE, contact: 020 7974 4445

Q.

What kind of fact finding regarding the risk of possible flooding around Camden will a conveyancing solicitor in Hampstead scrutinise?
