Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £581,000 property? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote.


The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement that homeowners often do not check. Costslisted in the small print needs to be fair. They come into force only if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


We have a found a leasehold flat to buy. How do we aim for fast conveyancing?


Finding a proactive, diligent conveyancer is essential to a faster move. There are a range of tasks you can do to accelerate the legal work. These include:

  • encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly
  • promptly answering your conveyancer's questions (by email if possible)
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements


In relation to the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are questioning if flood risk searches won't be detailed enough?

Food risk searches conducted by your Kirkby Stephen lawyer should include a more informative search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are concerned try to approach a local resident.


Which of the Kirkby Stephen lender panels are you on?


Of lenders with branches nearby Kirkby Stephen, Homeward Legal work with many. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Homesavers Mortgages & Loans Ltd, 6 Kensington South, Bishop Auckland, DL14 6JA, Property Link Ltd, 79 Allhallowgate, Ripon, HG4 1LE, and Mercer Russell Insurance Services Ltd, Room 5, Block 1/St. Cuthberts House/Durham Way North, Aycliffe Industrial Park, Newton Aycliffe, DL5 6DL.


Is there something I can do to hold off paying SDLT?


SDLT must be paid on property sold for more than £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation scheme must be treated with caution by purchasers in Kirkby Stephen, as such schemes are expensive and often likely to fail. There have been a number of official schemes, such as disadvantaged area relief.


For a lender, we have chosen Yorkshire Building Society - what will we need to consider?


Buyers should consider that some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, which may result in increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, though, will act for most lenders, ensuring that an additional conveyancer will not be required to act for your lender.


I really need to exchange contracts on the selling of my maisonette inside a month, are you really fast solicitors in Kirkby Stephen ?


We , by default, adopt a very speed focused approach when finishing the necessary legal work for movers.

We only ever introduce you to conveyancing property lawyers that work quickly and attempt to communicate by phone and email end to end throughout the chain buyer and seller property chain .

Also , our carefully chosen panel of conveyancing property lawyers are actually chosen because they have invested in advanced document and form assembly systems to exchange on the legal work asap.


How can we check that a house is in a designated conservation area?


Conservation areas pinpoint neighbourhoods of architectural merit. Living in a conservation area can mean protection for trees and other flora, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A conveyancing solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.
