Q.

We are looking for a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Heathrow. What is included?

A.

Many conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees may be added into the small print. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Your conveyancing lawyer could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is located.

In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Lloyds TSB is going to be our lender, what do I need to check?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased legal costs for buyers if their solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of the vast majority of lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
