There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am trying to find low cost conveyancing in Harwich.


Various conveyancers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which home owners may have not read carefully Any charges needs to be reasonable and clear. They come into force only if the solicitor is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


I have to exchange on the conveyancing process on my property within 5 weeks, are Homeward Legal fast Harwich property lawyers ?


Our solicitors by default adopt a completely take charge approach to conducting the conveyancing. Having invested in speed focused technology and automated practice management systems . We also give vendors a qualified property lawyer prepared to communicate with all parties in the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) e.g. councils , to fulfil a fast conclusion.


We are looking to be finally moving out of our semi detached property just outside Harwich into our new dwelling in Harlow , when to select a removals firm?


The most sensible course of action is for buyers to put off agreeing the removals company until the point where all parties have agreed the completion date which occurs once contracts have exchanged. Local removals companies include Rutson & Porter, 39 Seaview Av, Little Oakley, Harwich, CO12 5JB Telephone: 01255 504337 or Re Move All, 14 Rectory Rd, Little Oakley, Harwich, CO12 5JT on 01255 880239.


The local agent has offered the solicitors firm which they often use. Must I instruct this solicitor?


Estate agent recommendations are a not uncommon way for home buyers to find a solicitor. Such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
