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


Harpenden Building Society is our mortgage lender, what will we need to know?


A small number of lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for purchasers. We, fortunately, are able to act for all large CML-approved lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A good quote should clearly state all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.


How is Higham Wood contaminated land checked when purchasing?


Several contaminants can ruin residential property in Higham Wood, such as nearby electrical substations. An environmental search should offer more information.


We are intending to purchase a church rectory in Northfleet. Are we advised to get a chancel search?


A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is located. In Higham Wood's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so.


We are completing in June. How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates calculated?


Stamp Duty will rely on several factors, primarily the value of the property. On a £54000 property, stamp duty will be £0.


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.


Conveyancers in Higham Wood do formal searches if acting for a home purchase client - which particular searches?


If purchasing and applying for a mortgage the lender will expect a solicitor to get particular searches, including the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search as well as any area-specific searches e.g. a Cheshire Brine Search.
