How do we find a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a home?


Many property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied homeowners


We are buying in Higham Wood, is it that important that searches are performed?


These searches are a prescribed bundle of questions undertaken on behalf of the purchaser. Conveyancing searches refer to the legal condition of the property's title.


I have requested a quote from you. Will I need to pay any hidden charges?


No. Homeward Legal never charge any extra, hidden costs for your legal work. Your quote is an accurate price.


Is it important to get searches for chancel liability? We are buying near a church built in the 1700s in Higham Wood.

Property owners in Higham Wood may be subject to chancel repair liability. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Higham Wood properties is likely to exist. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary.


What does the Higham Wood conveyancing solicitor do when the property I am buying is in a local authority conservation area and has ill-suited doors added?


Your instructed solicitor to establish if the property is located within a conservation area and whether any alterations have appropriate consent.


Do I need to employ a solicitors firm who works with by the estate agent in Broxbourne?


An agent in Broxbourne will usually endorse a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


What steps can I take to get out of paying stamp duty on the purchase?


We do not advise conveyancing clients get involved with any stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are costly and often likely to fail.


Flood searches are based on archived records and when you factor in recent events such as the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall in the future, are they still appropriate to see enough about the Higham Wood future flood risk?


Environmental searches applied for by your conveyancing solicitor in Higham Wood should include the more in depth Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are apprehensive why not get in touch with a neighbour or local resident.
